The Lamb was terrific. We were having fun but got shooshed by the owner because a table of 4 complained. By the way the restaurant is very loud so we were confused. But for that I would have done a 5 star for this place.

Both first courses and mains were fish.. Oysters and a tian of shrimp and crap for starters. Hake and seafood platter for mains. Best oysters I have ever... More

We dropped in at this restaurant without a reservation. Staff accommodated us right away. The seafood was the best we had in Ireland including a well reviewed place in Kinsale. Service very good. Would recommend to anyone.

One of those extraordinary nights when you wonder whether it really happened! We travelled to Killarney from Tralee for a night out. Great place (as a Brit) to enjoy the Irish vibe. The Lord Kenmare was recommended by someone with local knowledge - the place was full of Americans and we even sat next to a young American couple who... More

If you're looking for a special night out for dinner, consider Lord Kenmare's Restaurant in the heart of Killarney's city center. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, the food is delicious, beautifully plated with generous portions. The staff were very friendly and helpful, offering a window table once another party left. After dinner they even suggested we could sit in... More
