In the unlikely event you didn't hit a craft shop in Killarney, you can browse the shelves of Bricín on your way to the restaurant on the second floor. This quirky little eatery set above the ground-floor craft emporium on Killarney's main street makes a change from pub grub, combining a warm welcome with a romantic atmosphere. Candles and an open fire shed light on Persian-style rugs and dark red walls hung with antique engravings of Killarney, while simple country-style
wooden tables and stick-back chairs are set within "snug" areas created by stained-glass panels. The good value menu features boxty (Irish potato pancake) with a choice of fillings, including vegetarian. Other options include baked salmon stuffed with crabmeat, char-grilled beef fillet, and roast rack of lamb.
