Grilled Pineapple with Whiskey Sauce & Vanilla Ice

Friday, June 26th, 2009

Grilled Pineapple with Whisky Sauce & Vanilla Ice Cream


1 Large Pineapple

2 teaspoons Butter

 ¼ cup Brown Sugar

¼ cup Whiskey  / Brandy / Rum

Vanilla Ice Cream



Cut the top and bottom off of the pineapple, peel and cut it crosswise into 8 rings.

Use a spoon or apple corer to carve out the center core of each ring.


Heat a Griddle pan or a Frying pan over a medium heat, brush the pan with a little vegetable oil to prevent the pineapple from sticking.

Grill / Pan fry the pineapple, in 2 or 3 batches, for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until it is nicely brown and grill marks have appeared.


While the last batch of pineapple cooks, heat the butter, sugar and rum in a small saucepan over a low heat, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved and the sauce has thickened slightly, about 2 minutes. Remove the sauce from the heat.


Place a pineapple ring on each plate, scoop 1/4 cup of ice cream into the center of the ring, and drizzle about 2 teaspoons of sauce on top.

Spring letter from the general manager

Letter from the General Manager.

Here we are at the start of April and another season ahead of us .The winter period has been quieter than others but we still have had a productive winter and been able to offer great rates for our guests and will do so for the coming year as can be seen from our specials page on this website .

 For example we had our Murder Mystery weekend ‘EMERGENCY ROOM’ on the 6th & 7th March, which was a great hit with our guests as they got to solve the crime and have a wild weekend at the same time. We also have another ‘Murder ‘weekend planned for the autumn ‘Haunted House’ at the  Halloween Weekend.

Right throughout the summer we will be updating our specials regularly so keep an eye on them for the best offer in town .Killarney has plenty to offer you all year round with festivals, concerts, and loads of activities for all the family. The Killarney Court is ideally sited to make use of these as we are just on the edge of town but not so far as to make a difference.

I hope that you have a good year and that you holiday with us here in Killarney. As always, we are here to help and assist you in whatever way we can. I can be contacted on . Please feel free to contact me at any time and hopefully I can be of service.

Derek Carroll.
