Lovely, personal, genuine service from Monica and the staff. And then, the meal. I went in for the early bird menu and the choices were excellent and varied. Each course was excellently prepared and presented - so i cannot recommend just one thing. And I actually took photos! My friends in the states were jealous when I went to Killarney, now they're green with envy when they saw the pictures.

Wow! What an outstanding place. The decor is lovely, the service attentive and friendly but the food???? Now that's another story. Deeeeelicious to say the least. Starting with the freshly baked bread and the amuse bouche, when the entree arrives, you just want to take a picture. So, beautifully decorated but then tastes even better. We started with the rabbit pâté (yum), then had the rack of lamb and the roast suckling pig/pork dinner. Everything was so flavourful. Side vegetables completed the dinner and it was more than ample. Wish we lived closer so we could return.

Enjoyed dinner at the new West End Restaurant during holidays in Killarney. Their early reputation for fine dining is well deserved. The food is delicious and the service excellent. We will be back soon again!

This was our second time in two years for dinner. The ownership has changed, but the venue (redone) is still lovely and a joy to have dinner at. The meal was excellent and the staff wonderful. Look forward to a 3rd dinner in future.

We passed by West End House to "have a look", having seen it reviewed on Trip Advisor, to see if we would book it for that night. We popped in to have a look at the menu and Monika warmly greeted us as did John O'Leary (Chef/Owner). We were treated to a guided tour and were filled in on the history of the house. Each room has it's own charachter and colour and you'd be torn as to which room you would like to dine in, as they are so tastefully decorated and furnished. To cut a very long story short, we ate like kings. The food was so well presented, each dish was a work of art. The flavours were fabulous, the ambiance was beautiful, the staff were excellent, efficient & friendly. It was a "meal experience" and John's passion for creativity of food was apparent throughout. Monika was a wonderful, warm & professional host, and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank her, John and their team for the best culinary experience we've ever enjoyed. Sorcha & Jim
