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

We stayed at the Killarney Plaza for a golf weekend and spent every night in the Grand.😃 Brilliant choice of music and rooms to go in as well as top staff Not far to fall in when you have had a couple of drinks. Well worth a visit😃🇮🇪😃

We went to Grand on a Saturday night. The doorman was discriminating against people. He let a drunken hen party in free and refuses entry to well behaved and sober people. Inside was a lot of drunk and loud people and the pint was crap.

We went to "The Grand" on a Sunday night and expected it to be quiet. Not so. The place was lively and packed. Traditional music played for quite some time at the front of the bar. Later in the evening a band played in the back that played a mixture of traditional tunes and more contemporary. We had an absolute... More

How can any reputable pub/hotel not open until 7:30 in the evening. The rooms are shabby and the showers actually stopped working at a stage. There is no breakfast and there is no residents bar even though there is a bar and niteclub within the hotel. The bouncers refused to let in some of our party to the hotel even... More
