Rozzers Restaurant has been named Ireland’s best fine dining restaurant by TripAdvisor, the world’s largest and most influential customer review website.

This is the second year in a row that the flagship restaurant in the Killeen House Hotel has filled the prestigious number one slot and the news has been described by the team there as “unbelievable”.

Owned and operated by mother and daughter, Geraldine and Michelle Rosney, the hugely popular restaurant is a key part of the hotel which first opened its doors to the public in 1992.

“To reach the number one position for this very prestigious award in 2021 was the stuff of dreams for a small operation such as ours. To repeat the feat again in 2022, is just a small bit unbelievable for us,” said Geraldine Rosney.

“This award is not just about the food on the plate. It’s also about the pure professionalism of all the people who work with us and the warm and comfortable ambience of the overall property."

Her daughter, Michelle Rosney, added “All of us here in Rozzers are absolutely delighted to achieve this two-in-a-row and we are extremely grateful to our fantastic guests who took the time to write reviews of their Rozzers experiences.”

Geraldine and Michelle are full of praise for the team at Rozzers, particularly head chef Paul O’Gorman, who has been at the helm in the kitchen for the past 28 years.

“Chef Paul is, without doubt, the first among equals and he is more responsible than anyone else for the consistency and quality that Rozzers has taken such pride in delivering to all guests over the course of the last couple of decades,” added Geraldine.

“Here in Rozzers, it’s all about nothing more and nothing less than the guest and if we manage to send them home at the end of the evening with a smile on their face, even after having paid their bill, then we are satisfied that we have all done our jobs well,” she added.

Jumpers have helped to raise almost €10k so far – but now it’s a very special jersey which could drive the fundraising numbers up!

A Kerry football jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team is up for grabs via a fundraising link once a donation is made to the Presents for Palliative fundraiser.

On Friday eight local schools including Holy Cross Mercy, Killarney Community College, Presentation Monastery, Lissivigeen, St Brendan’s College, St Brigid’s, St Francis Special School, and St Oliver’s
swapped their uniforms for their most colourful festive gear with funds going to help the amazing services in the Palliative Care Unit/Kerry Hospice Foundation.

“The day took place across the schools involved last Friday (December 2) and looks like it has been a success,” teacher Elaine Moynihan from St Brendan’s College told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The donations from the schools are still being counted but students look to be on their way towards making their goal of €10k.”

The iDonate ‘Fundraising For Kerry Hospice Foundation’ has been very helpful in this regard, she added.

“Anyone who donates via the link and leaves their name will be in with a chance to win a Kerry jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team which will be presented to them before Christmas by a couple of members of the team.

“This was organised by the students involved in the fundraiser as a way to say thanks, and give back, to the members of the community who have gotten involved in the event – the link is live until December 18 and the draw will be made the following day.”
