A POPULAR Killarney restaurant has been included in the Top 10 on the prestigious annual list of the best fine dining establishments in Ireland.
Rozzers Restaurant in the Killeen House Hotel features prominently in the TripAdvisor 2017 Travellers’ Choice Awards, based on reviews from diners around the world over the past 12 months.
One of Killarney’s premier fine dining restaurants, it is owned and run by Michael and Geraldine Rosney and the restaurant team is spearheaded by head chef Paul O’Gorman, a native of Dublin who has been at Rozzers for 22 years.
Paul remarked: “This is 100 per cent a team achievement and it’s a very nice feeling for all of us to get such wonderful recognition for doing something that we all love doing anyway”.
Proprietor Geraldine Rosney said: “The Trip Advisor Top 10 Awards are especially meaningful to us because they are based totally on the experiences of hundreds of ordinary guests, who have dined on ordinary, regular nights in our restaurant”.
Michael Rosney added: “They are all types of people, from all walks of life, who experience the restaurant in all types of situations, as opposed to being professional judges or critics who come to you to assess an experience rather than enjoy an experience”.
“It says it all about the food offering in the kingdom of Kerry that we are the only county in Ireland, outside of Dublin, to have three restaurants included in the Top 10,” he added.
The other Kerry restaurants to make the roll of honour are the Chart House in Dingle and the Lime Tree in Kenmare.
Joining them in the elite Travellers’ Choice Top 10 are Michelin Star restaurants Chapter One in Dublin and Campagne in Kilkenny as well as An Port Mór Restaurant in Westport, Finns’ Table in Kinsale and Dublin eateries Pearl Brasserie, The Mulberry Garden and Forest Avenue.
Now in its 26th season, Rozzers is the only Top 10 restaurant to be part of a hotel as all the others are stand-alone restaurant operations.
