A really lovely bar in town centre

Paused for a drink after a "shop 'till u drop" experience with my good wife. Very relaxing bar in the town centre. They also serve food but we didn't have any on this occasion. Beautiful old world décor and very clean. Reasonably priced drinks and nice clientele. Def worth a visit

Very cozy, traditional Irish pub, we sat by a nice fireplace. Me and girlfriend had fish and chips which was very tasty and the portion was huge! Only remark, the chips was not best, needed to be more cooked.

Recommended by staff at our hotel, and glad we went. Cozy pub, filled with a few locals as we were travelling in the off season. Nice to "hang" with the locals. They are friendly.

Went in to have a meal in the bar - looed at the prices on the menu and left almost straight away. Went to a Hotel close by and got the same food for 1/3 of the price.

I traveled to Killarney during the holidays and was lucky enough to stumble into this wonderful pub. I could walk from where we were staying and would often walk into town in the morning and I would sit myself down at Laurels. Enjoyed the warm stoves, good coffee and free newspapers. Televisions were always turned to local stations and the... More

My overall favorite place to stay in Ireland was Killarney. This pub was so warm and inviting. We were visiting during the Christmas holidays. The fire in the pub warmed are hands and feet while the Guinness warmed are bellies. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our family had a very nice meal after returning from our Ring of...
