Killeen House named ‘Best Fine Dining in Ireland’

By Michelle Crean

A Killarney restaurant has been named the ‘Best Fine Dining Establishment in Ireland’ by the world’s largest and most respected travel platform.

Rozzers Restaurant, located in Killarney’s Killeen House Hotel, earned the top accolade in the ‘2019 Travelers’ Choice Awards’ by TripAdvisor - after guests voted positive reviews on the site - which is used by 490 million people every month across the globe.

The ‘Travelers’ Choice Awards’ for restaurants honours travellers favourite dining establishments worldwide – and it lead to great celebrations at Rozzers this week after the announcement was made in London.

Based on a full year of TripAdvisor reviews, the winning establishments were consistently given high ratings and praise by diners across the globe.

Award winners were determined by factoring in the quantity and quality of reviews, gathered over a 12-month period. And Rozzers Restaurant climbed up the rankings this year having being placed seventh in 2017 and second in 2018 to become Ireland’s best fine dining eatery.

Proprietor Geraldine Rosney and Head Chef Paul O’Gorman spearhead the dedicated team, with Geraldine saying that the restaurant and the hotel have been honoured with many awards over the years, but being voted the number one fine dining restaurant in Ireland on the world’s leading travel review website is a very special achievement.

“You know for sure that you’re doing something right and that’s why this award is extra special for all the team,” she said.

“Paul provides the inspiration for the team on a daily basis. He has been with us for over 20 years and he is a joy and a pleasure to deal with.”

The award-winning Kingdom Pride in Kerry festival is back next week and Killarney will take centre stage.

Kingdom Pride will be celebrated in towns all across the county from July 17 to 21.

The organisation’s flagship Party in the Park event will be held again in Killarney House and Gardens, following the Pride march in the town centre on July 20.

This year, in solidarity with the people of Palestine, Kingdom Pride in Kerry is inviting the people of Kerry to come to show their unity by bringing Palestinian flags and kites to the march, and to the Party in the Park.

“Pride is a protest for human rights all over the world. Here in the Kingdom, we have been so lucky to receive tremendous community support from our allies and supporters, and we see the struggle for liberation of all peoples as a united cause,” said Daniel Quirke, chairperson of the organising committee.

“Our events have always welcomed everyone, regardless of gender, orientation, religion, or nationality. We truly believe that together we can create positive change through caring for and loving one another. This year is no exception, and we look forward to helping to highlight the Palestinian cause, and to bringing people together to keep generating positive change for all people.”

Events will take place in Cahersiveen, Listowel, Killorglin, Tralee and Dingle, and include an Irish comedy night with Áine Gallagher, an Irish-language movie screening, yoga, sea swimming, poetry and storytelling, bowling, pitch and putt, a lively drag night at the INEC, and plenty more for people of all ages.

“We do our best to keep tickets as low-cost as possible, and we have lots of events that are totally free to attend. It is important to us that people can share Pride with us, regardless of income. Especially with the rise of the cost of living putting a strain on people’s pockets.” added the chairperson.
