We had a lovely evening for a friend's birthday party, the food was really excellent and the people could not have been nicer. The only slight problem was that they struggled a bit to cope with such a large group (15 people), but to be honest, it did not affect me, only some other people in the party!

We stumbled upon The Kilshanny House on our way to the Cliffs of Moher. It is on the road - not in a village - which means you could easily drive by - which would be a mistake! We were attracted to the tables out front, and the charming stone building and decided to stop for a midday Guiness and snack. We were greeted by Mary, one of the owners, who was delightful; friendly and helpful without being pushy. The menus (there are two - small bites and regular meals) were full of inventive dishes, with an emphasis on local seafood, cheeses and produce served with a flair. We wished we had come for dinner; our "small bites" were delicious and presented beautifully. We left impressed with the quality and presentation of the food. Very highly recommend that you design your day to eat here. If this restaurant were in Kenmare, Killarney or Adare, I guarantee there would be a long wait for reservations and much higher prices.

From the moment we went through the door of Kilshanny House until we left a few hours later we relished every moment. We were greeted by Mary who took the time to explain all items on the menu with 'tender loving care'. Her passion for the food was really obvious. The emphasis on local food is to be recommended. The starter of local goats cheese was excellent, the special of the day for main course was excellent, when we visited it was John Dory with scallops and chorizo in a French-style casserole. Yummy! The baked cheesecake for dessert is a real delight, as was the pecan pie, and crumble that we also had the pleasure of having at our table. Mary also took the time to give us local tips on what to do in the area. The decor is very restful also.
Definitely worth a visit. Wonderful chef.

My wife and I stopped at Kilshanny House on the way home from Doolin for a spot of light lunch, and initially were struck by the airy bright atmosphere. We were seated at a window table and our hostess was warm, chatty, friendly and gave us tons of information on the area including a booklet of local activities.

When our seafood chowder came I was hit by the multitude of flavours, lots of chunky fish and accompanied by a beautiful brown soda bread. We then shared a white chocolate cheese cake with two coffees. Our bill came to just under 23 Euro, reasonable for top quality food, service and ambiance.

We can recommend a visit to Kilshanny House!
