We enjoyed a great dinner and drinks and then went to listen to the music. This venue was packed, so it was good that we had a reservation. Very enjoyable evening.

We arrived for a weekend in Killarney and wanted to watch a match. Since it was raining we ducked in to Hannigan's and what a great find it was.

We went out to find food on a Saturday night in Killarney and although we did not have a reservation the staff could not have been more helpful in finding the four of us a table. The food was excellent and there was also traditional Irish music being played. All in all it made our stay in Killarney.

The wait staff is exceptional at this restaurant. Friendly, courteous and professional. The pub section of the restaurant has live traditional Irish music and listening to that by the fire was a wonderful experience.
