During our 10-day Ireland tour, we visited many pubs. This seemed to me a mix between a fine restaurant and a pub. You had a full Irish whiskey menu and a drink menu and a full food menu. Our tour had a set menu arranged but our choice of drinks. We also had a live band perform and Irish dancers... More

Came here for lunch after a long morning of hiking and site seeing. Good service and good fish and chips. Easy for lunch and nice Irish pub feel.

Simply put, you must get the seafood chowder. It's delicious; surprisingly sweet, with a delicious sourdough, it has huge chunks of fish and other creatures - a great deal, and a truly unforgettable little meal.

Named after the famous Killarney horse drawn carts and for this visit the wheel has fallen off after some previous very good dining experiences. This visit we brought family for Sunday lunch after telling them the food, service etc was very good...the place was fairly busy but plenty of available tables and quite a few diners sitting outside. A long... More

Sometimes, the simplest things in life are the best. We dropped in our first night at the Muckross because we'd had a long drive to Killarney and didn't want to venture too far. It was a great choice. Sinead took great care of us, and steered us toward the fish and chips—an outstanding call. Our second night at the Muckross,... More

We are a family of four (including ten year old twin boys), and had a fantastic dinner here. We were staying up the road at Friar's Glen B&B and it was recommended that we eat here. Excellent food, great location.

While staying at Muckross Hotel we ate here several times. Our group included a four-year-old and a couple of vegetarians. We all enjoyed it.
