“Enjoyable meal”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by our guesthouse owners. We didn't reserve a table thinking that it would be quiet on a Sunday evening. Turned out to be packed, but as there were just two of us we got seated. Starters were pricey so we shared one. Both mains were very good (brown trout, scallops), as were the desserts. The service was friendly and efficient.

“Wow!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

I was blown away by how incredible this meal was. We went here on the advice of our innkeepers as we wanted a special meal for my birthday. We were not disappointed. From the beginning with a crabmeat and avocado appetizer with a lime yogurt garnish, to the Beef Wellington with the perfectly cooked to order filet and vegetables, to finishing with a passion fruit soufflé, the entire meal was perfection!!! We were not expecting a meal of this quality in little Kenmare but I would have to say that I have not had a meal of this caliber in the states (we live near Atlanta) ever, and we've eaten at many James Beard award winning chefs' restaurants. To top it all off, the service was top notch. We found that the restaurant service in Ireland typically reflected the fact that they don't work for tips. This was not the case here. I want to go back to Ireland and Kenmare just to eat here again!

“Wonderful food, wonderful service”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

A group of 8 of us had dinner in Mulcahy's on the 8th June. The staff were excellent from first making our booking to leaving the restaurant. The food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. We were all particularly impressed with the mini loaves of brown bread!!! The staff were very accommodating to requests for slight changes to some of the dishes. We were the last table in the restaurant and at no stage felt any pressure to leave. A really memorable meal. Thank you

“Absolutely lovely food served with a smile!”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

We were staying in the Park to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and thankfully followed advice and tried this restaurant. Without going into details of every single course suffice to say this was a beautiful meal (far surpassing anything we got in the Park hotel) and we really look forward to a return visit! Service was warm and friendly and food was delicious. The menu offered great variety for those not blown away by fish...but with options for those of you who are too!Super meal topped off perfectly by nightcap(s) in Crowleys!! Oh Kenmare really is a jewel in the crown!
