WOW!

WOW! The food was wonderful, the service was spectacular and the overall experience was unforgettable. Visiting Ireland for the first time from the states, this was more than we expected. Thank you for the experience. Cheers!

We had the signature dishes which were very good and good value. We had not booked but were looked after immediately and the service was very good.

We dined in this restaurant on the second night of our visit to Killarney and returned the following evening because it was so good. Service was excellent.

We ate here on our last night in Ireland, after having some great meals all over the southwest region. It was great! Our waiter was wonderful and chatty, without being intrusive. He was knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list and had a few jokes for our two teenage kids. If you plan to dine here on a weekend,... More

We went to Hannigans on a recommendation. We are a family of 10 and all of us had a great meal, we cannot criticise at all. I had the lamb roast which was absolutely delicious, more like a steak than slices of meat and hardly any fat at all which I expected on lamb. The service was wonderful too. Highly... More

No long delays waiting for food but not too fast either. Bread in the basket,homemade and very tasty...i love trying out all these breads. I... More

Stopped here with my friends hoping to get a decent lunch as the hotel has a good reputation. I decided to go for a "chicken melt ciabatta" which I hoped, for 7.50, would fill me up for a few hours at least. All my friends' dishes came out (some other sandwiches, some lunch meals) and looked alright but mine turned... More

Am usually wary of hotel restaurants, but glad we stayed in for this one. Food was very good and the service was very attentive. The breaded sole fillets from the specials menu were great. The rest of our table had the sea bass and lamb loin, which were also very good - clean plates testified to it. The Baileys &... More

Our first night in Killarney we ended up at Hannigans and were skeptical because it was part of a hotel. We have picky eaters in my family but all were happy with our meals. I'm a vegan and they had an incredible veggie stir-fry which I loved. We were so happy the first night we decided to go back the... More
