From the moment we entered we were greeted and well looked after. They couldn't do enough for us. The food is outstanding. We will definitely be going back.

We arrived later in the evening, and asked around for recommendations. We had the fish & chips and it was very, very good. Would recommend, and would go again.

I can genuinely say in all my 62 years I have ever come across such an unwelcoming, ignorant establishment. As soon as I entered I was made feel so uncomfortable by the customers followed by staff ... Myself and my family had gone to Killarney on a whim to celebrate my VERY ill daughters 40th birthday as we all love... More

My fiance and I ended up going back again and again to try everything on their menu and it all was delicious. The fish and chips were spectacular and same goes for the seafood chowder and the mussels. There was one gentleman bartender who was so friendly and outgoing, he was also a big reason why we wanted to keep... More

This place came recommended by our lodging host, and turned out to be the most disappointing meal of our trip. The server (Owner) handed me the check and pointed out where I should write in the tip.

This pub offered traditional Irish fare, but it's very well prepared and the service and ambiance were excellent.

My wife and I were in Killarney for a few days last week. Had lunch here a few times. Food was very good and service was excellent. The seafood chowder is really good. The pint is always good here.

We ate in the Laurels Restaurant, which is right next door to the pub. At first we chose it because it had a quiet ambience , including quiet, relaxing music. Then we found that the service was. great and the food was delicious. I had cod which has a wonderful white wine sauce with dill. My husband had chicken fajitas... More

Sat at the bar, had a quick drink and split sandwich for lunch. Excellent service, very clean atmosphere and bartender offered wifi password without us asking! Great value!
