Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I’m not sure why Mulcahys gets such good reviews. It’s good middle of the road food, nothing more, nothing less. Friendly service.

As soon as I went through the door I knew this place was going to be good. The staff were excellent and couldn't do enough for us. After a few drinks we were ushered to the prime seat by the window and all our starters...and main courses were first class, only one of us was able for dessert and it didn't last long!More

I had booked a table for 6.00pm for my husband and 9 year old son on a busy May weekend. We were caught in traffic in 2 towns along the way and I could not contact the restaurant, so there was an initial hiccup with...the table - but they found a solution for us, which was really appreciated. We shared a starter of the potato skins and dip, which was really delicious. I also had the lobster and crab roll, which was really good. We ordered half a bottle of wine, which was reasonably priced. We both had the salmon en croute from the specials, which were delicious. My husband then had the chocolate mousse, which was very nice. Please note that they don't serve the child's menu after 6.30pm. We ordered chips and greens from the side dishes, as a compromise. I can see why this is one of Kenmare's top restaurants. I would definitely book it again as there is a very nice menu, with lots of things to try. The food is delicious and the service was excellent. This is a great restaurant.More

What a gem! Showed up on a Tuesday night without a reservation, but early, around 630pm and they kindly squeezed us in. Great little restaurant, lovely staff, good decor and ambiance and busy! Food was superb - great take on potato skins and both our...meals (fish and meat) were excellent. Very good cocktail and wine list as well.More

A visit to Mukcahys should be on everyone’s bucket list ! We were here prior to Covid and enjoyed an amazing evening. We returned wondering if it could possibly be as nice second time round and we were not disappointed. Mt starter-of lobster and prawn...croquette was superb. My main course of Pork belly was quite possibly the best I’ve ever eaten. My husband ordered potato skins followed by a Ribeye steak_. Cooked to perfection. We pre ordered the Tatre Tatin - there are no words for the sheer opulent flavours, aroma and taste that it brought with it . The service was almost on a one to one basis the friendliest and most attentive staff .More

I could not recommend mulcahys enough, I was there with my partner and another couple and we had an amazing time. The food was absolutely stunning and the service was even better, the staff were extremely professional and very helpful especially with myself and my...partner both being coeliac, there were plenty of options to avoid gluten. The Cocktails were also top class. Can't wait to go back and also recommend to friends.👏More

Good food, a nice setting, and friendly service, although the staff was stretched pretty thin. Dinner for two (soup, entrée and dessert) was 101 euros before tip.
