Recently spent a lovely weekend in Killarney. After a day out seeing all the beautiful sites that the Killarney area has to offer, myself and my family were ravenous and had a look on menupages.ie to see where we could book for dinner that night. Found Lord Kenmares and luckily managed to book it over the phone with a very friendly hostess. On arrival that night there was a great atmosphere and live traditional music in the bar and the atmosphere upstairs in the restaurant was what you would expect for a Saturday night - lots of people in great form! All staff we encountered were so helpful and all had a smile on their face for everyone. Service is top class. Food was amazing, I am still craving the seafood platter, I would highly recommend this! Next time I am in Killarney I will definitely return. My family were equally impressed also.

Extremely over priced for average food, other restaurants in KillArney do better. Also very cramped

Ate here on sat the 25/07/15 have previously been there a month before hand . Seems they must have changed chef's or something as food was totally awful on the night , paid nearly 85 euro for 2 people , All of my 3 course were a discrase as so were my partners on the night , Won't be going back here again as one bad meal is enough for me ,,

When we arrived, we were brought to our table, and the service was great, the waitress was really friendly, and told us the specials that evening, I had the crab starter and it was delicious, and then I ordered the Pork belly, and it was the best tasting meal I have had in a long time. The location is great as its smack bang middle of town, with parking across the road in the Glebe, I will definitely be back.

While the staff were quite friendly, we felt that too many different waitresses were attending to us throughout the night. The atmosphere was nice although it was a bit load however on the plus side the food was gorgeous - very tasty.

We certainly enjoyed our meal at Lord Kenmares. The service was extremely friendly throughout. We had the set menu (€27 for 3 courses plus tea/coffee) and were very satisfied. Service starts at 5.30pm, so very convenient for those wanting an early meal. I would recommend booking, as it is very popular. We would certainly go back here again.

I love Lord Kenmares, the food is always fabulous and the service is warm and welcoming! Early bird menu is great value. Always go there for special occasions...the steak is the best in town!!

My husband and I are fans of Killarney and have been here a number of times. Lord Kenmare's didn't disappoint and it's central location is fantastic. The staff who work here are excellent and make you feel right at home straight away. I started with soup as I had ordered the seafood platter which is enormous. It was a tiny bit watery but did have flavour and overall I enjoyed it. My husband had the prawns to start which he was very happy with. TThere were plenty of them and they had lots of flavour. For main course I had the biggest platter of seafood I have ever seen. It includes scallops, mussels, monkfish, salmon, oysters, calamari and prawns. It was really delicious and I would recommend it if you like seafood. You could almost share it with someone! My husband had the pork which he also enjoyed. I tried a little of it and found it a little on the sweet side for me but it was tender and well cooked. For dessert we managed to squeeze in one to share as I was really full from the seafood platter. The baked alaska was delicious and well cooked. The strawberry frozen yoghurt was still solid and was encased in delicious meringue. Overall we were happy with our choice for dinner. The food was very good quality and we found the service to be particulary warm!

My husband and myself had a meal before a show in the Gleneagle last night. We didn't have a booking but were happily accommodated by a very efficient, smiling waitress when we assured her that we only required a pre -show quick bite. Delicious home made breads and jug of iced water immediately graced our window table. We enjoyed the rack of Kerry lamb(and it was KERRY lamb) and fillet steak - well done as requested, beautifully garnished, generous and served with roast veg salad and three kinds of potatoes. One word describes the meal - mouth-watering.I had time to gulp down a chocolate fondant - it was to die for. I regretted having to rush but will certainly be back for more. While we enjoyed the show it was this scrumptious meal which has lingered in our minds today. A negative is hard to find - perhaps more home-made Kerry desserts! A wonderful culinary experience which I would highly recommend and which I hope to delight in again.

My sister and I ate here last evening. It was fabulous. We both had herb-crusted scallops to start with - sublime!! Tender, succulent sweet scallops in a delicately flavoured crust. My sister had steak with bearnaise sauce - fantastic and I had the duck. Vegetables, gratin potatoes & chips were all lovely and service (as usual) was top class. I find it to be a consistently great restaurant and everyone should find something fabulous to eat...no matter how fussy an eater they are!!!

This is a really good restaurant with excellent food. I had the seafood platter which is a must for any seafood lover. Decent sized portions also. You can see why this place is always busy - it deserves to be. I will definitely be back and would highly recommend it.
