Had 3 courses here on Valentine's night and the food was amazing! Simple food cooked very well with generous portions. Service from each and every one of the waitresses was also top class with a friendly charm that can only be found in Kerry! Will definitely be back soon.

I enjoyed the food but unfortunately the service was very slow, We were waiting for over twenty minutes for our food, Maybe it was busy but we waited for what seemed ages before we were able to eat

Came on Sat Jan 14th. Hadn'd booked, so was fitted in as it was early evening. Service faultless, very welcoming staff in restaurant. Atmospher lacking, perhaps due to L shape of restaurant, could do with soft background music as we were privy to neighbouring tables conversations. Food was good but could have been better. I had overcooked Barbary duck, however... More

Recently I had Dinner in Lord Kenmare's Restaurant. For the month of January it was Extremely Busy. The Food & Service was Excellent and the setting was very nice. They have a special offer menu for the month of January on some nights with a glass of wine included and the price was very reasonable.

We were here on the 30th December past. It was outstanding. There were 9 of us and the service was fantastic. I had the seafood chowder to start which was superb and pork belly as a main course. My wife had the seafood platter which was amazing. All washed down by a wonderful bottle of Te Pa Sauvignon blanc

He had a steak, and I had a vegetarian risotto and both were perfect. The deserts were also to die for! We didn't order starters but were brought some breads and dips which was... More
