Called in on a Sunday evening and had a great meal that avoided just being Irish classics for the tourist trade. Loved the pork schnitzel!

Thank Simon H

This restaurant was recommended by a fellow traveler on our Smartours trip to Ireland. The owners run the restaurant. The lady is the pastry chef and greeter/server and the husband is the chef. We had a wonderful conversion with the owner. There were four of us and we each had a different meal. My husband and I started out with the bleu cheese salad--absolutely mouth watering. The blend of flavors was wonderful. I had the chicken and my husband had the fish. Both were expertly prepared and served. The other couple started out with the shrimp appetizer and they were blown way by its uniqui flavors. Their meals were also way exceptional. There was a wide range of prices. Most of entrees were between $15-20. I highly recommend this wonderful restaurant.

Mareena's lived up to the reviews on trip advisor! We had a salad then the Pork Schnitzel and for dessert we had Mother Eve's Pudding it was all great! We saw others having different menu items and they all look good. We would go again if we are ever in Killarney. Very friendly relaxed atmosphere, we enjoyed going.

Recently had dinner here and I loved it! Went with my sister and mum and we all agreed it was one of nicest places to eat in Killarney. I had the steak (lovely and tender) , mum had the pork (best pork ever!) and sister had the lamb (excellently cooked). The woman who served us was extremely friendly, we will definitely return :)

I could not fault this restaurant!
I asked for a light meal and had the baked courgette but asked for salad instead of the mashed potatoes as vegetables that came with it and there was no problem at all. Full on flavours in the food with presentation second to none. Dessert was not a let down either. Flavour and presentation exceptional again with great wine and welcoming staff what more could you ask for? To top it all off the bill was so reasonable
definitely going back!
Thank you
