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.

My family was happy to stop in to the Killarney Grand and Sheehan's for trad music. An elderly gent joined the musicians by putting on a tap dance performance. Wonderful time and prices were quite reasonable.

Super popular place with locals and tourists. There are pubs every 5 steps around there, but this place charges a cover (really!), and it's still packed. The bands we saw 2 nights were as good as they get, and the crowd was totally into it. Met lots of other fun tourists there as well.

Stayed here with a group of girls last Christmas for a hen & cant compliment the place enough. There's nowhere better than Sheehans for nightlife! Our group varied in age from 20 to 60 & there was something for everyone. The trad session in the front got everyone going & was really popular amongst the mums & aunts. The rock... More
