Review

The Smokehouse restaurant in Killarney is the brainchild of the lady who brought us Miss Courtney’s Tea rooms. Sandra Dunlea's new venture is cool and laid back - the type of restaurant that serves you breakfast as you plan your day exploring Killarney and the lakes, where you break for lunch while shopping or where to go if you are with a gang of friends on a big night out. You will fit in if you’re dressed to kill and equally so in your shorts and flip-flops.

The Smokehouse opens for breakfast with a big choice of traditional, vegetarian and organic porridges on offer. The day-time menu is designed for people to drop in while shopping or taking a break from their tourist pursuits. There are a range of salads, open sandwiches and daily specials available, and the place is kept pretty busy all day.

In the evening the Smokehouse becomes more of a serious restaurant, while still being fairly casual. The emphasis is on grilled food, and there is a large choice of meat and seafood. Some of our favourites are the starters of grilled mussels, or scallops with samphire and garlic butter. Prices range from €7 and there are a couple of soups and salads here as well.

Main courses include the grilled Kerry mountain lamb, a very serious mixed grill, blackened organic salmon with fennel and tomato and if you want the best of land and sea, there is a grilled Valentia Island lobster and 4oz filet steak option for €25.

Desserts are all home made and change frequently, while the wine list has six 50cl bottles listed at €15, including a fairly decent Pinot Grigio.

The Smokehouse has a nice feel to it - it is friendly, the food is very good, the prices are keen and all in all it’s a fun place to spend an evening. If you’re down Killarney way, add it to the list.
