The service was spotty (had to ask to be served drinks after sitting down and had to ask for the check - service seemed slow even though they were not very busy). The food was just ok.... More

After a very busy day, this was the perfect place to relax and enjoy a superb meal. We felt quite at home as they stocked South African Cabernet Sauvignon, our home country wine. We had excellent service and it rounded off our day perfectly!

Had 3 courses here on Valentine's night and the food was amazing! Simple food cooked very well with generous portions. Service from each and every one of the waitresses was also top class with a friendly charm that can only be found in Kerry! Will definitely be back soon.

Atmospher lacking, perhaps due to L shape of restaurant, could do with soft background music as we were privy to neighbouring tables conversations. Food was good but could have been better. I had overcooked Barbary duck, however... More

Recently I had Dinner in Lord Kenmare's Restaurant. For the month of January it was Extremely Busy. The Food & Service was Excellent and the setting was very nice. They have a special offer menu for the month of January on some nights with a glass of wine included and the price was very reasonable.
