If seafood is your thing, look no further than Gaby's. One of the first seafood restaurants in Killarney, it remains the gold standard in fine dining. The lobsters in the window give the story away: brought in fresh daily from Dingle, they are in a tank in the window, and you choose which one you want. Service was very friendly,... More

We were recommended a visit to this restaurant by our Vet, a native of Kerry. He told us that if we ever found ourselves in Killarney, we should endeavour to sample the wares at Gaby's. We happened to find ourselves at a loss for a weekend, so decided to take an overnight trip to Kerry, and to visit this restaurant.... More

Sorry for the late review. We were there in October 2016. My husband and I loved the food! The muscles were my favorite! Service was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant.

With all the good reviews we had high expectations. Unfortunately these were not met and our 3 stars is on the generous side. Our meal - monkfish goujons with a dip (and absolutely nothing else) and Salmon and steak (all from the daily specials menu) were at the level of good pub grub fare. Nothing wrong with the food but... More

I stopped into Gaby's on my first night in Killarney. The server was very friendly and the muscles with a light garlic butter sauce were tasty. The owner stopped by my table to check on me; I was and still am happy to say that my experience at Gaby's Seafood Restaurant was great.

We recently had dinner in Gaby's as part of the Christmas in Killarney and wasn't impressed by the experience. The food was average at best & the service was less than impressive. At the end of our meal we ordered a coffee( which cost extra) only to be given filtered coffee which was rudely taken away on complaint & replaced... More

We had a wonderful meal at this restaurant, great table near the fireplace. Server was cordial and efficient. The menu was limited, but this was due because of the season and I appreciate the honesty of the establishment they only serve FRESH SEAFOOD! The food was delicious! Well worth the visit.
