Garden Restaurant
The Garden Restaurant at Muckross is an ideal venue for those who wish to enjoy a relaxing meal in the scenic surroundings of Killarney National Park. Set against the spectacular backdrop of Torc and Mangerton Mountains, the Garden Restaurant enjoys magnificent views across the old Victorian Walled Garden area.

This modern, 170-seat, self-service, restaurant is the ideal location for those who wish to enjoy a relaxing meal in picturesque surroundings. Visitors can enjoy this magnificent scenery all year round, from our conservatory area, which complements the adjoining, newly restored, Victorian glasshouses.

The Garden Restaurant is open seven days a week throughout the year. In the peak summer season, we are open from 9am until 7pm. During the off-peak months, we are open from 9am until 5pm.







Visitors have a choice of between eight and ten options from our hot food buffet, which is served daily between noon and 3pm. Service is extended until 4pm during peak season.

The Garden Restaurant offers an excellent range of menu options and value for money. It is a popular lunchtime venue, both for visitors to Muckross and for local Killarney residents. Some of the more popular dishes on offer include:
  • Duo of Sea-fresh Cod and Rainbow Trout served on a Bed of Vegetable Julienne.
  • Cajan-style Chicken Breast with a Black Pepper Sauce.
  • Baked Fillet of Salmon with a Chablis Cream Sauce.
  • Braised Beef Steak with an Onion and Guinness Sauce.
  • Asian-style Pork Chop served on a Bed of Vegetable Stir-fry with a Sweet and Sour Sauce.
Vegetarian and Gluten-free options are also available, as are freshly prepared salads from our self-service salad buffet.

The Garden Restaurant also caters for those who would prefer just a light snack. Freshly made sandwiches, soups, scones and pastries, are available at very competitive prices, while our on-site bakery provides an excellent array of gateaux and mouth-watering deserts. These include firm favourites such as Baileys Cheesecake, Strawberry Cream Meringue and Bannofi Pie.
