This is a very interesting restaurant! First thing you'll note is the decor (really you have to visit the bathrooms and check out the vivid artwork!). Next the fresh items on the menu. You can eat cheap (big bowls of soup or appetizers) or go all out (steak dinners and local specials). Great wine and beer selection. Most items are from local farmers or fishers. This is NOT a pub or recreation of what someone wants to see as an Irish pub, but there are plenty of those in town so its nice to see something a little different.

Had a good meal and enjoyed the very slightly eccentric style of the place and in particular its weird loo.
I know you go for the food but the kids thought it was coola dn really liked the food and service as well.

No-nonsense approach. Very transparent honest approach (source of everything on menu) to where the food comes from. Service was good. The man who served us (the owner perhaps) seemed to be serving the whole room but had a pleasant word for all and dealt with all queries promptly. My starter of goats cheese and pear on bread grilled was very special. Decent coffee too

On our stay in Killarney last weekend, my wife and I came across this restaurant. The food, the staff and the atmosphere was truely unbelievable. We visit Killarney often and would know many of it's best restaurant but this one has stood-out over the many years visiting. Anyone in search of fine food and Irish hospitality should visit this restaurant, as it demonstrates the true Irish experience. We wil definately make it our business to visit any time were in Killareny in the near future.
