We had a wonderful time at the Killarney Grand. The traditional music was wonderful, the atmosphere was warm and inviting, and the staff were very friendly. After the traditional session there was more of a nightclub that opened up in the back. My friends had and I had a wonderful time!! It felt much more relaxed that some of the... More

This seemed to be the liveliest of all of the places in the area. The trad band playing for the earlier part of the night was fantastic. The staff were friendly and there was a lovely atmosphere in the pub. Decor is beautiful. Get in before 11 if you want a seat before the second band starts to play. The... More

This bar is located right at the beginning of town and is very popular for the tourists AND locals alike in the winter. You can meet people from all over the world here while listening to traditional Irish music. And, they take requests.... I was seranated with a California Irish song. The bar is quaint and there is a DJ... More

Can't say enough about the Killarney Grand! Was here on a Saturday in November and I can't fault it! On first arrival we met John the bouncer and he was so polite and friendly.. He showed us around the whole bar and reserved a table for our group! We started off just inside the doors of the pub where a... More

The Killarney Grand pub advertises traditional Irish music from 9-11pm every evening. We went on both a Saturday and Sunday evening in November, way off season. The traditional music is played in the front room of the bar. The rest of the pub is made up of a long bar and behind it a stage for not-so-traditional music, and a... More

We popped in for a drink and we were greeted with a cover charge of €10! It was so packed that it was a struggle to get to the bar... A big fight broke out and although security were fast at trying to diffuse the situation it turned into a free for all as the culprits were being removed. Drinks... More

Enjoyed my first real Irish Guinness beer at this pub, and I have to say the local vibe made it all the more memorable. My friends and I spent the entire night here, it was a very safe lively place with a night club area within the building. The craic was really 90! (If you don't know what this means... More

I'm Australian and my partner is from Dublin and I have to say the staff, band and the Craic was unreal but the only downfall was the younger crowd which was very judgemental towards us. It was quite upsetting as the older patrons were brilliant and I don't understand why we encountered such harsh criticism simply by being from another... More

Spent two nights in Killarney for the August bank holiday weekend. On both nights we ended up in the Grand. It was so lively. Well worth a visit for anyone heading to Killarney. Live music on both nights, great enjoyment had by all. Love this place.
