It has the best location in Killarney, right in the center of town, on the ground floor of the International Hotel. We first went to the BRICIN RESTAURANT, but they and other restaurants in Killarney are closed on Mondays. We ate in the small area off the bar. We started with the creamed vegetable soup which was tasty and came... More

Hi pbschaeffer, We appreciate you taking the time to post your review. I'm glad that you enjoyed your meal with us and I agree that we are indeed very privileged with our central location. Regarding the chicken stir-fry, it is traditionally not served with bread or rolls. If you had informed one of our waiting staff, I'm sure they would... More

Six of us ate here, good food, good atmosphere and the best Guinness in Killarney. This is a typical irish pub with good irish pub food. The menu has all the usual suspects that you expect and are all well prepared and the portions are big. Don't expect fine dining and you won't be disappointed.

Hi Alistar L, Thanks for your positive review. We like to pride ourselves on good food, great atmosphere and generous portions, so I'm glad you found this to be true. There are many good pints of Guinness to be found in Killarney, so it's great that you viewed ours as the best. Warm Regards, Jonathan McCarthy More

Our hostess in the B&B recommanded this pub/restaurant to us, however, we neglected it the first evening, but came back the next one and unfortunately we could only have the quick before 7PM early dinner because we were going to Celtic Steps that evening. We sat in the pub and had a very nice meal. The smoked salmon was top... More

My niece and I went to Hannigan's for the Irish music our last night in Killarney. We had the best time singing along, people watching and meeting the locals. This pub is a lot more intimate than the Killarney Grand for Irish music. Hannigan's and the folks we met were a definite highlight of our trip!

The food at Hannigan's was delicious, their fish and chips (Lemon sole) were one of the best I had during my stay in Ireland. The food is served in quite big quantities and is very reasonably priced. The service was also great, the waiters are friendly and helpful.
