We have been in Ireland for a week now, and have tried a lot of traditional Irish food, and we're looking for something a little different. Kirby's did not disappoint! I had the lasagna, my husband the beef stroganoff. This is the first restaurant that brought a bread basket right away. Both the brown and white breads were delicious. I love how the food is always brought out piping hot in this country! The portions were very generous, the lasagna was terrific. It came with a wonderful small salad, and fries--or chips as they say. Really great! The stroganoff also was wonderful. Too bad we had no room left to try the desserts. Our waiter was quick and quite polite. I can see why this was the #1 rated restaurant.

I was away with my eldest son having a men only holiday which included racing at Listowel and pints in Tralee, a great combination. We stayed in Tralee during race week and on our first night we decided to give Kirby's a try. It was just after 19:30 and were given a table and menus straight away. The choice was fabulous and I had chowder to start with a burger for mains. Not just any oul burger though, this one came with bacon and blue cheese accompanied with a salad and chips. The taste flavours of both the chowder and burger were immense and have to say it was one of the best burgers I have eaten in a long time. My son had wings to start with a chicken burger for mains. He too thought the food was top class. This restaurant was busy all the time we were there but the staff had it all under control and the business ran like a well oiled clock! Really happy to find Kirby's and hope I will be back.

Well done to all. Credit to a great team.
