Great food and service! My wife and I loved this place. We had dinner our first night in Killarney here, and were so pleased, we came back for lunch the following day. The salads, soups and the STEAK were simply fantastic. Getting hungry right now just thinking about the food. The service is fast and friendly, Would be my first... More

The Smokehouse stands out on the Killarney High Street with its decor and charm. Having walked the street crammed full of restaurants, we settled on the Smokehouse and really quite glad about it. The food was served in good time, my mushrooms on bruschetta was very tasty, if I was picky, it might have been better to serve the mushrooms... More

We had a late dinner here while in Killarney and it was delicious!! The duck and the lamb were amazing, I only wish my appetite was bigger so I could have finished my plate!

We ate here while staying in Killarney and chose it simply because of the look of the place - plus the menu contained what looked like tasty food. It was early evening and busy but they found us a small table by the window. I am never sure what to think when put in a window seat but I assume... More

I never really leave reviews but just felt like I had to for my visit to this restaurant. Staff were lovely and very inviting. The atmosphere was really nice and warm. The decor was rustic and very cool. We were seated up on a higher level downstairs underneath a speaker - the music was very loud (we are young and... More

rude staff. Such a turn off. Waitress didn't seem to want to get up and take our order as she was eating her own lunch. Chief was on the table opposite shouting on the phone.

Randomly chose to eat here for lunch, the decor is absolutely beautiful and the restaurant is an absolute gem, but it felt very mixed up. The restaurant appears quite rustic and elegant, however the service was like Eddie rockets. Lunch menus were badly cut strips of paper, and the staff were dressed very casual. A waitress dressed very casual, hair... More

I love the feel of this restaurant. It's very quirky & warm. This was our second visit, the first being a few years ago. It's great to see the place has retained its charm. It's very laid back so don't expect waitresses fussing over you. We didn't mind this. The lamb was cooked to perfection & I would highly recommend... More

On Friday night in February we walked into The Smokehouse without a reservation as it had been recommended on Trip Advisor. We were seated upstairs near the front window. I was shocked when I saw the state of the upholstery. It was faded pale pink velvet but so filthy I didn't want to sit on it. There was a big... More
