We arrived late after doing the ring of Kerry and most places had finished serving. When we went to Hannigans we were welcomed and they checked to see if they could fit us in for supper. It was just after 21.30pm. The service was very friendly and our waiter was checking to make sure we were ok. Food was tasty... More

Visited this restaurant to celebrate my boyfriend's father's birthday. Fairly standard pub menu. Waiter was friendly but brought us the wrong sparkling wine without saying anything, then when we asked about it he apologised, went to replace it and then another staff member came to tell us that they didn't have the one we wanted anyway. Apart from this hiccup,... More
