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.

Although they were very busy on this Saturday evening, they fitted us in. The Hot and Sour soup was spectacular, as was the stir-fry with ginger and chicken. The service was friendly and fast.

Enjoyed a meal here tonight with my wife. We had read the reviews on TripAdvisor and we decided to give it a go. We were not disappointed. A lovely restaurant with great staff. The food was exceptional. Would highly recommend a visit to anyone looking...for a great dining experience in Kenmare.More

We had takeaway, got a larger selection of food for 2 families. Food was delicious, fresh and thoroughly enjoyed. Wish we had somewhere similar back in Dublin.

We have been to many big cities and metropoles but have never tasted such deliciously prepared Chinese/Thai cuisines such as this one. This is on another level! We love love their recent upgrade on their cozy interior but even without, their excellence in food and...presentation still reign supreme! Even as a vegetarian - you can still enjoy to your heart's desire. They are very accommodating and will go out of their way to please and meet your needs. We truly enjoy it every time! Thank you Lily House until next time..... 🙏️🌻 🌟More

After a wonderful dinner my wife left the restaurant without her purse and did not realize it until early the next morning. The owner of our B&B knew the owner of Lily House and called him. The owner of Lily House personally delivered my wife's...purse to our B&B and would not accept a tip or reward. Wonderful people and food!More

Excellent Asian food in Kenmare! This is a lovely wee spot and definitely worth going do dinner if you want something different from the standard Irish cuisine available in the town. Very affordable and very tasty!

Another visit to Lily House, as good as ever. The food at Lily House cannot be matched and their prices are more than reasonable for the quality of the food produced. The best value for money in Kenmare by a long shot!

Our family lives in Killarney and we still regularly make the drive across to Kenmare to eat in Lily's House. We have never been disappointed. I lived in Taiwan for many years so have pretty good experience of Chinese food and can wholeheartedly recommend this...restaurant. It is hands down the best Chinese food I've eaten anywhere outside of Asia. I regularly recommend this place to local people and they consistently come back with glowing reviews. Everything is good here but the Spicy Amber Fire Steak is worth a particular mention. Just ate here again today and realised I had never left a review. So...this is my review. Enjoy.More
