“Best restaurant in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

This was my 2nd visit to this restaurant and having coming all the way from wexford to killarney for two nights we just had to book a night in tralee just so we could go to this restaurant again. It certainly is as treasure. My first visit was last July for my birthday and it became my favourite restaurant ever!!

The ambience in this restaurant is just the best...stone walls...fairy lights..candlelit tables...warm fire...you just couldn't ask for more..Staff were friendly on both occasions and the lady who owned the place could not have been more welcoming.

Garlic mushrooms to start were just delicious, and a very generous basket of bread. Both of us had the sirloin steak which, although originally being disappointed the fillet beef was no longer on the menu, there was no need, as it was absolutely mouth watering and cooked to perfection..served with mushrooms and a big deep fried onion ring, on the bed of mash and a very generous helping of vegetables.

I would highly recommend this restaurant. It just ticks all the boxes. It is great value for money and i certainly will be planning my next trip to tralee just to go back again. This is he first time I've ever left a review..It was just too good not to. Keep up the good work

“Finnegan's was a highlight of our trip to Ireland!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

Last week, we had the great fortune of dining at Finnegan's Wine Cellar. We were a group of 12 from Virginia. The service was impeccable and the food divine. The ambiance at Finnegan's was also outstanding. All 12 of us would highly recommend this restaurant.

“Great Food, Service and Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

We had a large party of 12 and our driver recommended this restaurant. We were seated immediately in a darling basement dining room, complete with stone walls, warm fire and attentive staff. We highly recommend this restaurant to any traveler in Ireland. The food was delicious with great choices. We had the 3 course meal and it was worth every penny (a good value). The music was good too. I highly recommend! Enjoy...

“great ambiance, food, and value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

Walk down the stairs into the cellar, where you will see a quaint stone room, with a working fireplace and great atmosphere! The menu offers a great selection, including a 3-course meal for 22 Euros. The service was impecible! Don't pass this gem by ... one of the highlights of our trip.
