A much loved local business has topped TripAdvisor’s list of the top 10 best fine dining restaurants in Ireland - the only hotel to feature on the list.

Rozzers Restaurant at the Killeen House Hotel scooped the award in the Tripadvisor’s annual Travellers' Choice Awards on Wednesday - a top 10 list that included some of Ireland’s best-known restaurants.

The restaurant is lead by Head Chef Paul O'Gorman who has been with Rozzers Restaurant for over 25 years.

“Since we opened in 1992, we have always focused on creating memorable dining experiences using the highest quality local produce," Geraldine Rosney, owner of the Killeen House Hotel and Rozzers Restaurant said.

"Against the toughest year we’ve ever experienced in the Irish hospitality sector, the feedback from all those who took the time to review us on TripAdvisor is a great endorsement of the hard work and commitment of our team who share our passion in serving up incredible and memorable dining experiences at Rozzers Restaurant. The entire team are beyond thrilled with the news. In 2020 Rozzers Restaurant was only open for 13 weeks due to lockdown restrictions. The fact that the people who dined with us during that time had such a positive dining experience is very special and very important to us. We could not have done this without our head chef. For 25 years he has been a vital part of Killeen House Hotel and Rozzers Restaurant. Like a fine wine, he just gets better with age!”

In line with Government guidelines, The Killeen House Hotel and Rozzers Restaurant reopened in June, serving dinner to residents only on a very popular “Come For Dinner, Stay For Breakfast” package which proved popular with locals.

Rozzers Restaurant will be reopening for non-residents on Monday next.

He came dashing through the town on Saturday night and packed streets greeted him with huge excitement.

Yes, that’s right – Santa Claus took some time out of his very busy schedule and arrived to town for the annual switching on of the Christmas lights and magic parade.

The streets were lined with children and their families and they’d huge smiles on their faces when they spotted the man in the red coat making his way around the town on the colourful float.

Grace O’Hare was pictured with her dad Conor – she had the best seat in the town to watch Santa Claus as she was perched high on her dad’s shoulders.

It was the same for the Patterson family, Alex, Irene, Catherine and Robert, while Parade safety steward, Marie Brosnan-Leahy, was on hand to make sure everything went off OK.

Killarney Municipal District Councillors, Cllr Niall ‘Botty’ O’Callaghan, Cllr Donal Grady, Cathaoirleach Killarney Municipal District Cllr John O’Donoghue, Cllr Brendan Cronin, Cllr Marie Moloney, also enjoyed the occasion while the Sam Maguire took pride of place and centre stage in Killarney for the annual fun filled event.

And while he was in town Santa took some time off to have a chat with Killarney Advertiser columnist Marie Carroll-O’Sullivan – check it out on page 14 of this week’s edition.
