We went to killarney for a 2 night break and instead of eating at the hotel we decided to try hannigans. The service was fantastic thanks to a polish lady whose name escapes me.

We had the pleasure in dining in Hannigans Restaurant recently and I can only say just alone the children's menu had a great selection of not only homemade chicken nuggets, but a healthy option of stir fry, or a main course meal, which is lovely to see its not all quick food for the kids. I enjoyed scallops which were... More

It was a cold, snowy night and we walked from our B & B to find a place for dinner. How lucky were we to find Hannigans in the International Hotel, not a far distance away.

I enjoyed a leg of lamb and a scrumptious dessert. As good as the food was the server was better. During our trip we often name a lamb while out for the day, which we would be eating for dinner. Three of us had decided on a leg of William, not sure where we picked the name. We were joking... More
