“It worked for us”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

We wandered up and down the street trying to decide where to eat.
It was getting later and later and between looking things up on Tripadvisor and reading menus we just confused ourselves and walked straight into The Smokehouse out of sheer frustration in not knowing where to go.
The place was busy, but we were lucky to get a table straight away. It was only once we sat down that we realised that amongst all our reading of reviews that there had been some pretty bad ones for this place. Our experience was not like that.
Our Waitresses were both lovely, polite & professional.The food was delivered in good time, and although not mind blowing, was great for the money. We weren't out for a special dining experience, we just wanted a decent late supper.
I expect reviews are in relation to how important that meal is to those people at that time, but this was perfect for us, and we would return if back in the area.

“Awesome Food”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

This restaurant is wonderful. It is nice and small. You are definitely shown a lot of attention. The food was wonderful as well. This review has been a long time coming, since it was 2yrs ago in July of 2012 that I ate at "The Smokehouse" not July 2013, but it is still one of the most memorable meals that I had while I was vacationing over in Ireland. I wish that we had been able to eat there more than just the one time.

“Good place, not too bad a price”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

We had dinner here late. Most places in Killarney close down fairly early, so it was nice to find a place that was still open.

The beer menu was limited, but the food was good and the service was excellent. Also, the prices weren't bad, for Ireland, anyway.

“Shabby looking with tasteless food”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

I was out in killarney and as a chef had heard that this place was supposed to be a nice place to eat in. It was a bad experience from the minute i walked inside the door. We were sat at a table just inside the window which had candle wax all over it as well as all over the window. There were cobwebs all over the place also and it just looked like the restaurant wasn't cleaned very much. As for the food it was very disappointing, not seasoned and tasteless.

“Great food and ambiance”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

My husband and I ate here during our vacation in May. The decor has a great eclectic feel and nice ambiance. I had a steak and my husband had duck. Both were excellent. Great wine to go with it. Try the Banoffee pie for dessert. We ordered this a few times during our trip..their's was the best!
