This place is fantastic. Their sandwiches were delightful and the service was very friendly. I recommend the shepherds pie. The BLT was good as well. My friend also really enjoyed the house salad and the chicken parm sandwhich. It wasn't too pricey either, as my lunch was only 10 Euros. If I ever come back to Killarney, I will certainly... More

Staff was very helpful, they even let us store our bags in the restaurant. Food was excellent and well priced as well. The Shepard's Pie was to die for!

Ate here recently and had a mixed experience. Had the fish and chips, my wife had the pasta. We found the food came incredibly quick which only points in one direction everything was reheated nothing cooked there and then, it was more like a fast food restaurant rather than a bistro. But did taste fine. The wine (Rosé) which my... More

Had dinner in the Bistro on a package deal. Food was absolutely class, particularly dessert, best ever. Staff were great. Had a few pints in the bar after which had a mixture of hotel guests and locals. Chefs are obviously top class, lovely evening.

Such an extensive menu - found it hard to pick something as everything sounded fab! in the end we went for crispy chicken with risotto and a chicken burger. Followed by gorgeous banoffee pie served in little jars. We are fast eaters and usually don't linger after dinner but there was something so relaxing and comfortable about Kaynes that we... More

Had dinner in the hotel bar. Very poor. Have to say I never ate such poor food. Medium rare steak came out very well done. Burger over cooked and dry Was recommended by waitress to have prawn starter. Deep fried greasy . Would not recommend this bar for food.
