If you're looking for a place to get away from all the other tourists (no offense meant), this is the place. Really great craic as compared to the Danny Mann and other bars that seem to cater to only the tourist crowd. On one night in November, we went looking for the craic, but kept running into everything but, until... More

Someone from my hotel, a seasoned Irish traveler recommended the Killarney Grand as a must experience place to listen to traditional Irish music. The music was excellent but the crowd was overwhelming. It was required to enter through a side alley and the back as the front was so filled. Even onlookers from the street were enthralled by the music.

Very lively pub with traditional music in one room and cover bands in the other. Music every night and a great welcome. Finishes late!

I don't know if this places operates year round like this, but it had to be one of my favorite pubs to go to. The line up for both nights we went was great! 9pm-11pm Traditional irish music, 11pm-1pm was a cover band (different bands on each night) and then the back of the pub has its own seperate room...

Johnny at Bricin recommended we head here after dinner there (eat there!) and we had so much fun! One night was a loud band and a hen party dressed like old ladies and the next night was tamer, with locals doing Irish dance. Enjoyed our visits and the staff was on the spot when glasses were broken.

Our B&B host had suggested the Grand for Trad music. We enjoyed the music and it started at 9, instead of 9:30. Got there a little early, so we were able to sit at the bar. Enjoyed talking to an Irishman who was there on holiday. Fun place to enjoy the evening.

While on a study abroad we visited Killarney and it was awesome! The highlight of my whole trip! We hit up the Killarney Grand and it was the best choice we could have made. The place is a bit older and nostalgic looking but it has a great kick back vibe to it. They have live bands perform, our band... More
