My husband and I shared scallops that were some of the best anywhere. I had the beef cheeks. Truly outstanding. Sweet owners. Definitely will come back.

Simple menu, but really well executed. My wife loved the Beef Cheeks & I had the Monk Fish & Prawn dish. We were both extremely impressed. Mareena was awesome too. If you want a great meal, come here.

We had a lovely evening in Mareenas. Prawn Coctail, Scallops, and Prawns and Monkfish in garlic butter - delicious. This is a small, relaxed restaurant run by a husband and wife which means that when busy, service comes under a little pressure, but the food is worth the wait (if there is one) anyway if you are out for a...

My dish was like a homemade dinner- I love the gnocchi! The blue cheese salad was also delicious. Great low key, modern atmosphere. Perfect for business, couples or more mature children.

I am a travel agency owner and I take small groups to Ireland. This year, I'm taking 3 groups -- May, July and August. I can assure you that I simply cannot go to Killarney and not have dinner at Mareena's. It is almost always my tour members' favorite restaurant on each trip. Their menu is creative and we always...

The food here was delicious and the atmosphere was pleasant. After eating a lot of typical Irish food, you might like going here and having some healthier and lighter options.

Booked family meal for 7.30 PM. Unfortunately we were delayed and I phoned the restaurant late afternoon asking if we could push our reservation back by 30 mins to 8 o'clock. The answer was a plain no….. so we never got to eat at this restaurant and won't be making a future booking.
