Great service and outstanding food. The grilled wild mushrooms were amazingly delicious. I recommend ordering fish because they certainly know how to prepare it. My Hake was perfectly cooked! The ambiance was lively and fun.

We ate in Lord Kenmare's on New Years Day. Only opted for main courses and we were waiting about 45 minutes - way, way too long for what were not awkward or time consuming dishes. Pricey for average food - too pricey for casual dining in my opinion.

Enjoyed a meal here while staying in Killarney for the weekend. We couldn't get a booking for the Saturday night - which is a good sign - & got a table for the Sunday night. Very nice meal, great staff & lovely atmosphere. I would certainly book here again.

Have been here maybe half a dozen times over the last few years. The experience is always the same: very friendly staff, good menu (especially if you're a seafood fan) and very good quality food. The atmosphere is great in the restaurant-but it is pretty small, and busy even on a Thursday night so booking recommended.

The Lord Kenmare is based in the heart of Killarney town. The menus gave a good choice. The early bird was Euro23.50 for 2 courses. The staff were friendly and the food of very good quality.

I made reservations prior to our family arriving in Ireland and was very happy to see that it was located directly across the street from our hotel! Our whole family truly enjoyed everything that we ordered! It is a really quaint restaurant and the service was wonderful! Highly recommend trying it if you are staying in Killarney!
