The waffles are terrific and the staff was very attentive. Loved the music over the speakers! A nice gem in the middle of Davidsonville.

This first visit was fantastic . I had the shepherds pie and the bread 🍞 pudding for dessert, it was delicious .The outside seating was great with cool ventilation. Social distancing was a priority. Our waiter was very conscientious with seating placement as well as...servicing. I will surely return to this restaurant.More

Have been a patron of Killarney House for many years, mostly in the bar for a pint of Guinness and the friendly barkeeps and atmosphere. The food is also first rate. My favorite is the Lamb Stew but a close second is the Fish and...Chips. As a veteran charter boat fisherman of many decades, a fish lover, and a wide-range traveler, I can honestly say that the Killarney House Fish and Chips is the best I ever have had. The folks there are friendly and the food is very good. In these times of "carry out only", do yourself a favor if you are in the Annapolis/Davidsonville area and order takeout/pickup from the Killarney House. You will not be disappointed. Disclaimer: I do not work for Killarney House, just trying to pass along some good eating advice in a time where good food is becoming unceasingly hard to come by.More

No reservation needed. We were seated right away in an area convenient to the Buffett area. Lots of choices including an omelet station with sliced ham or roast beef. Biscuits were a bit dried out in the warming trays and catfish filets were slightly overdone....Dessert section was nice.More

There are so many good things to say about Killarney house that it is hard to know where to begin. Well the food, it’s Irish, and it’s fresh, local ingredients for long time favorites. We will honor of our way to get Ruben there, and...don’t forget the extra stone ground mustard. The Sunday brunch :mmm all you can eat Shepard’s pie, need I say more ? Well there is more omelette station , carving station, and other delictables. I am just now thinking of going there for burger night since it is Monday. There’s another night oyster night where a local oyster farmer brings his own oysters, and shucks them for you. Oh and the eggs, come from their chickens out back. Drinks are pretty standard and you can’t go wrong with what ever you orderMore

Good atmosphere. Most accommodating kitchen, personable service and good choice of beers. If you are in the area, it's well worth a visit. If you're even just a little bit Irish, welcome to nostalgia!

This is a real find - nestled off road amidst the rolling countryside of Davidsonville, Maryland, a relatively authentic Irish restaurant serving typical Irish food including bangers and mash, shepherd's pie, pasties, corned beef and cabbage, crab cakes and fresh Irish bread. The drinks menu...includes Smithwicks, Guinness on tap, a selection of fine draft beer and a range of whiskies and spirits. We stopped in at lunch time during a trip to Annapolis – the Killarney also has a pub in addition to the restaurant, which is quite spacious. The corned beef dinner with champ potatoes, carrots and parsnips was wonderful as was the Pat Murphy's pot roast - delicious! We got on the end of their happy hour (3 hours in fact, from 3 to 6 on weekdays), with bargain special beers at less than $5.00 and pints of Guinness, of course. Prices were competitive and two of us dined there for about $50. We plan to go back to visit the bar, if we pass this way again, to hear their much praised Irish music sessions.More

My 55 year reunion had a brunch at Killarney's. They a wide choice of foods to choose from. I personally had scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage and french toast. I was disappointed that they didn't have cream chip beef, but I later found out they did...and I just didn't see. The food was good and the company great. I will definitely return to this restaurant.More
