Was here last night and experienced a "christmas in July" party which was interesting. There was fake snow and christmas songs all over the place. Good atmosphere and pleasant crowd. When we had enough christmas stuff we headed to the night club at the back. Great mix of music and good dj. Nice staff too.

We went there to listen to "trad" - local musicians performing impromptu music in a corner of the pub - it was just great - we had a fantastic evening. We also noticed a set up for a band at the other end of the bar and a nightclub. An interesting combination of music but it must work - the... More

Last Saturday night myself and my friends were enjoying a night out in Killarney when we decided to go to the central spot of the grand to continue our fun. We were stopped at the door by a rude and obnoxious bouncer holding us back saying they were full. Even when people left he wouldn't let anyone in. That is... More

Good afternoon, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. The band who were playing were a Celtic rock music band with a mix of Irish ballads & rock songs. These bands are real crowd pleasers and very Irish style of music with many bands playing this style. Thanks again for your feedback and we hope... More

The "Grand Session" Irish music is interesting and has a very local feel to it. Irish music starts between 8:30 and 9:30 with local musicians that just hang out together and jam. Rock after that, and a night club later. It is good to get there early if you want to sit for the music (any of it). It gets... More

The Killarney Grand is a must if you're in the vicinity. The craic is fantastic! There are three rooms. The front room features traditional Irish music beginning at 9pm. The middle room has a fabulous live band and the back room has another live band and a disco. There is something for everyone! If you're looking for good Irish craic,... More

A lovely spot for an after-dinner cocktail and the chance to take in some excellent live music before turning in. Right on the main drag, hard to miss, easy on the eyes.

Visited the Grand on a Wednesday night in May and had the best time. My party and I got there early enough to find seating with a view of both the front where the trad players set up and of the stage where the band sets up. Needless to say, we stayed for both. Completely different types of music in... More
