We had a great welcome and meal here over the Easter weekend. The staff were so warm and welcoming, local staff worth their weight in gold. The food and the ambience were very good, so good we returned for a second night. It was just as good as the first time. Loved it.

Had a quick lunch here and it was excellent! I would recommend the BLT but the scones looked delicious as well.

The atmosphere is great, the staff are so attentive and friendly and the food delicious. If you are in Killarney - make sure you have at least one meal at Hannigan's. Hannigan's is why people love to visit Ireland.

We had afternoon Irish coffee and evening dinner on a few occasions. Coffee delicious on a quiet pub afternoon, and the dinner variety was great. Staff was efficient.

We stayed 2 nights at the International Hotel and spent both evenings downstairs at Hannigan's. The first night we were just relaxing from a long day's drive with a couple of drinks. This is when I discovered my love of Bailey's Hot Chocolate. They serve it with whipped cream and a Bewley's caramelised biscuit...so delicious when dunked in the hot... More

We all wanted a simple Irish Pub meal but this one offered an eclectic menu with almost no traditional food...it was a bit of a miss for us...check the menu before deciding if it will suit your palate. The preparation was good but a wee costly.

This bar and restaurant, belong to the International Hotel, and it's one of my favorites. Although its a hotel bar, it doesn't feel like one, and you'll get all sorts here. The restaurant up back is top class, and I've eaten here a couple of times, over the years, and never had any complaints. If you want to impress someone... More

We had a gorgeous meal in Hannigan's during a recent trip to Killarney. Such excellent customer service, worth going back for alone. I had the Brie starter and Fish & Chips. Probably the best I've had. Excellent in ever way, looking forward to next time.
