We came here as part of a group tour. The first night dinner was included in our tour cost. That meal in the dining room was very good. The second night we decided to eat in the bar restaurant. Four of us ordered steak. Three serves of steak were very tough, almost inedible. The fourth was sirloin and the report... More

The standout thing was the service. We were warmly welcomed by a young lady and a table was set up very quickly at the window on our request. The waiters -Sylvester and Les (I think that was his name) made us feel very much at home with their wit and attention. There is a varied menu to suit all tastes.... More

I really want to rave about this salad as it is so tasty. I have tried several restaurants all over the world but this is by far the best salad I have ever eaten. Consists of warm chicken and bacon, regular lettuce (not baby beet greens or other leaves) croutons, olives and Parmesan cheese. Just be careful with lunch times... More

A little stuffy in the beginning but the dinner crowd cleared out and the music began! Drinks were reasonably priced, you had to get them yourself at the bar. We stayed late and talked with the singer/musician and watched the fight and the staff cleaned up and they didn't mind, so nice! I didn't want to leave! Ha

The staff were excellent and very friendly. Also very helpful on where to go and what to see. The food was excellent without being overpriced. It was a quick walk from our accommodation.

A friend and I stopped here after a long day of sightseeing in Killarney. We were tired and needed a good meal to restore ourselves. I had eaten here many years ago. It was good then but excellent now. I had the lamb which is my favorite. The sides were fresh and well prepared. The apple desert topped off the... More

We went there to have a drink at the bar and have dinner after. The beer was very good but the food was not good at all. My pizza was dry and looked like it was reheated. I do not recommend.

great food in the Killarney centre. Good service. Very busy during the lunch time so pre-booking is recommended.
