Amazing food. Amazing ambiance. Cocktails done properly. Staff are so well trained. Had a member in our group that has needs. In a wheelchair. Her favourite restaurant. Because the facilities are 100% for her. Lovely laid back atmosphere. But a word of warning. If you...want a table here or anywhere in kenmare. Prebook.More

Amazing place. We had 1 wheel chair user. Kenmare Town has some amazing restaurants. But this had it all. Make sure you book well in advance. Not just here but any restaurant in town. Food 5 star. Staff friendly all knew what they were serving....Could explain every dish in great detail. Covid regulations followed to great detail. Our wheelchair user very comfortable knowing her large chair would fit in the toilet and was able to close the door. Si she was very relaxed. Its not just a meal its hospitality at it best. In very difficult times. Thank you. This will definitely be a regular haunt of ours.More

Really Delicious meal. The black sole was gone as we were a 9pm sitting so we were disappointed but a number of us had halibut which was absolutely delicious along with the monkfish. Dessert stunning! Only complaint was that the acoustics in the restaurant could...be better as it was a little noisy - some soft surfaces needed but would definitely recommend!More

Coming to kenmare a long time and mulcahys never lets me down. Great food, great atmosphere, fun staff - and to hold all that with masks and restrictions is admirable, well done again.

Returned to Mulcahy’s one year after my last visit. On this occasion had two very young babies in the group . Staff managed our situation superbly . Friendly , understanding and very efficient . Food had taken a further step upwards. Fresh souci ( both...vegan and shellfish) excellent. Main course of fish , beef Wellington and of course vegan all of the highest order and all with that extra individual flavour , accompanied by a wonderful array of vegetables. Wines were in the reasonable price bracket. Unfortunately due to baby pressures had to leave before desert. Given Mulcahys consistent high level of product it is a must in choosing a restaurant in Kenmare. Well done .More
