“TERRIFIC meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

We run into this place by chance and it ended up being one of the best meals we've ever had. Husband and I couldn't resist getting the braised lamb which was TO DIE FOR. Absolutely amazing. Our little one had the appetizer chicken with mash which was a perfect size. For dessert we had the egg liquor ice cream and strawberries which was a perfect ending to our meal. The restaurant was impeccably clean, and Mary, who waited on us, was lovely and very thoughtful. Would definitively come back if I'm ever back in Killarney.

The owner served us. She was friendly. Our dessert was delicious as was our main course. Easy to find location but off the main road.

“Good lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

With my newly married wife we decide to go for the week end in Kerry. Our first stop is killarney and decide to go for lunch. A lot of restaurant were close or opening late. But at the corner of a small street we find this restaurant. It was the start of the lunch, a little bit quiet. But the food was very good, lamb was melting and well seasoned. The wine is at a very good value for this quality. We will have to come back at the evening to try their night menu

“Simply food is simply awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

We have been traveling for six weeks now and my wife declared the blue cheese and pear salad starter the best appetizer of the trip. By heating the plate the blue cheese melts while the pear and salad remains chilled. That attention to detail was evident in our entire meal. The owner is out front taking care of the customers while her partner creates wonderful dishes artfully presented. You cannot go wrong by choosing Mareena's but be sure to make a reservation.
