The food in the smokehouse did not live up to my expectations, it was by no means awful, but not worth the prices they charge. When food is good I never worry about the cost, but when its only average, like this place, I walk away feeling like I just got robbed. The service left a lot to be desired also.

A lot of the top Trip Advisor top restaurants in Killarney are closed, either on Mondays or until March/April. I rang around and found the Smokehouse was open. My sister and I visited on 31st January a damp rainy Monday. The friendly staff served us Roasted Whole Gambas for me and Scallops for my sister. Both of us had the Kerry Lamb for main course. We shared an apple crumble for dessert with creme anglaise (custard) and ice cream. Please please lose the fake spray cream decoration!!!!. The wine was not expensive at €20 a Chilean, while the most expensive was €22. They had a few selections of 50cl bottles for €15. Good value for money!!! They have another sister restaurant more upmarket called West End.

Myself and a friend chose the smokehouse for dinner, and were not disappointed. The staff were lovely the food amazing and the wine was good value. It was a brilliant to start to a great night out in Killarney. As a local it is great to have somewhere so nice to bring people to show them the best killarney has to offer!!! Well done Smokehouse

This is a lovely small brasserie style restaurant.

Great fresh food, melt in your mouth steaks, a definite must.

Service could be a bit better, but not bad enough to annoy or affect the experience.

For relaxed dining, this is the best in Killarney
