Killarney and surrounds

Travelling to Dublin and southwest very soon. Any "must try" places in this, restaurant, or locale we just need to "experience"???? TIA

  1. The Muckross Park Hotel outside Killarney used to have some good food. I can't vouch for it now because it's been quite a few years since our trip to that area. For lunch, the Avoca Weavers restaurant at Moll'sl Gap in the Ring is very enjoyable - good views, too. Do a search using the box above and to the right for Dublin - there were some good suggestions a few weeks back.

        Wish I could help more with Dublin. I was there in late June, but my plane was delayed and a friend took me to his favorite 'sub-continent' (homage to Howler) restaurant which was very good but not our first choice. There's no lack of good food in Dublin. I had a terrific breakfast at the Westin - great Irish smoked salmon!

    2. West End House in Killarney, on New Street, is excellent.

      1. Kenmare is the best place around Killarney/southwest for food. Try the Purple Heather, Prego or Jam (which is also in Killarney) for lunch, Mulcahy's, Packie's or the Lime Tree for dinner - they are all great. Prego is also good for breakfast, as is Bacus which is owned by the same people
