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.”
