Five Reliable Spots For A Hearty Dinner In Killarney

Killarney is one of the cutest towns in Ireland.

It's bursting with colour, it's got that Irish charm to it and there's music coming from nearly every corner on the streets.

The very first time I visited however, I found myself walking up and down the main street for about 40 minutes before settling on somewhere for dinner.

I wanted it to be good is all.

Here's some of my top picks for a deadly dining experience in the kingdom of the kingdom.

1. Khao Restaurant

The weather is getting cooler and the evenings darker and it seems that all I crave is soups, broths and ramen bowls.

Last week I was in Killarney and I stumbled upon Khao in search for just that.

I had a spicy chicken ramen bowl and it's genuinely one of the best I've ever had. Full of flavour, crunchy veg, a boiled egg and crisy shredded prawn crackers on top - a literal dream.

Only problem I had was that I couldn't finish it.

2. Lord Kenmares

A mixture of everything can be found on the menu here so it caters for whatever mood you're in.

Excellent food and good vibes.

3. Quinlan's Seafood Bar

Looking for the freshest, tastiest catch of the day in Kerry?

This is perfect spot to get your fish and chip fix after spending the day meandering through the breathtaking National Park.

Plan in advance if you can, the line outside can be a mile long – an indication of just how delicious their produce is.

4. Casita Mexicana

Tacos, nachos, enchiladas and of course Margaritas - if you're in the mood for some Mexican, this is a killer spot.

Tucked away down market street, this cosy restaurant has a great atmosphere and even better food.


5. Bricín

Known to serve the best boxty in Ireland, Bricín has gained quite a name for itself.

A favourite amongst locals and tourists alike.
