A hotel restaurant in Co Kerry has been voted Ireland’s best fine dining restaurant for 2021.
TripAdvisor announced the winners of its annual Travelers’ Choice Awards in London last week.
Rozzers Restaurant, which is located within the family-run Kileen House hotel in Aghadoe, County Kerry, has replaced Dublin’s Michelin-starred Chapter One restaurant as Ireland’s best fine dining restaurant.
Geraldine Rosney opened the Killeen House Hotel with her husband, Michael, in 1992. Since her husband’s retirement, she has run the business with their daughter Michelle.
The restaurant, which combines modern Irish and classic French culinary styles, is run by chef Paul O’Gorman and enjoys a five-star rating from over 800 reviews, the Irish mirror reports.
Due to Covid restrictions, the restaurant was only open between July 2 and October 13 of last year, during the qualifying period. It reopened last month, serving dinner to residents only.

“There were, of course, fewer reviews in 2020 than in 2019, but Tripadvisor still received millions of restaurant reviews in 2020, so it’s important to recognize which ones travelers have the most. loved during this period. “
