My sister and I got the sticky pork ribs (€12) and wild venison (€24). This was our most expensive meal during our trip in Ireland so I think it was fair to have some sort of expectations. The ribs (sesame seeds and brandy apples) albeit decent (I mean you can't really go wrong with meat covered in a sweet sauce... More

We ate here some years ago and were disappointed but decided to give it another try recently - sadly we had a similar experience again. The menu is not exciting, the wine list is limited and the choice of desserts was shocking. The service was acceptable. As a local, it pains me to say it but we won't be back... More

I ate here with my boyfriend today. We both ordered steak which came with baked potatoes loaded with sour cream. Unfortunately, my potato was gone off. I didn't realise how bad it was because it was loaded with sour cream. So it wasn't until i ate some of it the rot appeared 😱. The waitress was apologetic about the situation.

Gorgeous little gem of a place in Killarney serving good, big, wholesome meals. We had wings and ribs to start and they were absolutely lovely followed by Sirloin steaks with all the trimmings, mushrooms, salad, chips, baked potato. The service was brilliant and the food was delicious, sure what more do you need. This is a funky, cool little place... More

This place is great spot on high street in Killarney. Perfect for a nice dinner it has a real unique feel inside there and the lamb rack and steaks are delicious would highly recommend dining here when in Killarney.

Feeling the need to satiate my carnivorous side I visited The Smokehouse in Killarney recently. This is a really nicely decorated restaurant right in the middle of Killarney. It is on two floors, both very nicely decorated. I was dining alone which I find quite awkward sometimes, but thankfully they have three seats at a small bar just inside the... More

So the decor was a little bit off putting if I am to be honest. Music was too loud and the whole dinning space was dark and not very inviting. Staff were very friendly, polite and had a casual attitude which suited the place. But the proof is in the eating and my steak was absolutely delicious and everything was... More

Myself and 4 friends ate here after a days golfing in Killarney. I had the venison haunch and it was cooked to perfection a lovely shade of pink paired with a rich jus and pickled cabbage. The flavours worked wonderfully well together. The meat was tender and a perfect portion and not over seasoned to kill the delicate gamey flavour.... More
