Good Pub Grub

We dropped in here on the strength of other TA reviews. The place is small so getting a table was tricky - we ended up at a small drinks table but the staff were very good and the food was fine, although it wasn't much different from many Irish pubs we ate ate on our trip except it was a... read more

The Laurels has the classic pub feel complete with open fireplace and local drinkers. The food is great...check out the fried Brie and the beef stew. Also the Laurels is the perfect start to a classic Killarney pub crawl with a central location downtown.

We went to The Laurels because it was recommended by our B and B, The Larkinley Lodge (which I also highly recommend). Right when we walked in I was happy with what I saw. It has that traditional Irish pub feel and decor. We sat at the bar and were warmly greeted by a barman. We spent a lot of... More

This is a great place. The waiting staff are very helpful and cheerful and give a very good impression of the place. There is a wide ranging menu. I had Mustard Bacon and Colecannon. A great slab of tender bacon - possibly a large thick gammon steak by any other name. Walk-in are OK early (6 to 6:30pm) but I... More

Main Street in Killarney has so much to offer with regards to food and shopping and we were not sure where to eat for dinner. Laurels Pub had their menu posted outside and it looked inviting so we decided to stop there. The staff was attentive, the food was very good and the atmosphere was as well. After a filling... More

Great pub. Sitting at the bar, no more than a small trigger is needed to start a conversation with other visitors. We had a wonderful time and some great discussions. Memories to cherish!
