As I sit, and wait for my chocolate fondant, I'll use the mere 12 minute wait time to add our review. In short, we all loved it. Extended edition... Staff were incredibly friendly, polite and on the ball. Restaurant was clean, well laid out, with a great atmosphere. Lovely backing music, but not too loud at all. Chilled out but... More

For our first evening in Killarney, we dined at Lord Kenmara's. The meal was perfectly prepared and presented. For the appetizer we had the Prawn's, Avocado, and Mango Salad. The prawn's (shrimp) were absolutely the sweetest, freshest and best prepared that we have ever tasted. I have lived in Charleston, SC, and along the Gulf Coast where shrimp are plentiful... More

Faultless. What an evening of fine dining. Everything was just food at its glorious best. It has been a long time where a steak was presented exactly as it was ordered. No point breaking down the menu as everything that we had was perfect. Brilliant and caring staff who also added to a most enjoyable evening. This restaurant is a... More

Yesterday, we decided that we were in the mood for something a bit different. We read about Lord Kenmore's and it seemed to fit the bill.

Visited on our honeymoon last week. Simply and beautifully decorated, with perfect service, Lord Kenmare's was our favorite meal in Ireland! The food was absolutely to die for! We had the grilled mushrooms appetizer- such a buttery, meaty texture and the cheese was perfectly melty! Hubby had the steak with pepper sauce- it was very peppery and a bit spicy... More

We chose to eat here based on reviews we read on Trip Advisor. It is an upscale restaurant in the heart of Killarney. The service was spotty (had to ask to be served drinks after sitting down and had to ask for the check - service seemed slow even though they were not very busy). The food was just ok.... More
