We were taken to Sol y Sombra by locals who highly recommended this tapas bar, situated in an old church. I can see why it is included in The Michelin Guide 2019. The food was fresh and full of great flavours. We can highly recommend the beef stew, squid rings, lamb meatballs, and chicken skewers washed down with the Iron Bridge Ale and King Puck Ale. We were that impressed we went back the following night. Fabulous food, in a great setting, served by wonderful staff.

This very old converted church is stunning. The Restaurant was very busy and staff were welcoming and attentitive.
Food was delicious. Yes is is called "Tapas Bar" but the menu was extensive with many choices other than Tapas, would definently recommend.

This was my first visit and I was very impressed, the restaurant is a converted church with great atmosphere. The staff really looked after our very large table and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening, nothing was to much trouble. They have a set menu and a tapas menu which I opted for, all the dishes were very tasty and portions were generous. I would highly recommend a visit.

Stumbled on this place by accident and was so impressed we ate there twice during a week long stay in Killorglin. Don't let the tapas tag put you off as the menu is very varied and dishes, mostly featuring excellent local produce, can be ordered for singular rather than group consumption. The setting is simply stunning and the staff, particularly Linda, are very pleasant and accommodating. Prices are excellent also.
