We stayed at the Foley Townhouse, and naturally dined (twice) and the connected restaurant. They have a wonderful owner/chef who surprised us with both the menus and available wines. Loved it and would definitely return

I have had several meals here over the years. This is a proper restaurant in every respect. Very attractive setting with great food and excellent service. I highly recommend Foley's, one of the very best in Killarney.

We had fabulously fresh fish which was beautifully cooked and served with tasty vegetables. Good service, extensive wine list with 'something for most people'.
