Laurels was recommended by our hotel as a good place to get a good pub meal. It was a great recommendation. My husband go the hamburger and I got the Thai dish...what diversity. Both were excellent. The price was right. A nice evening out in city center Killarney.

We didn't want a big dinner so we asked if we could just get a soup and salad. No problem our waiter was happy to accommodate. The soup like all the other places we dined was delicious. The salad was good also and we topped it off with a Guiness. Nice clean place gracious waitstaff.

My wife and I came in starving and were treated very well by the staff and say immediately. The drinks came fast and the food was good. Maybe not the best meal possible as it wasn't as traditional as some we have had in the area. Still, it was a great meal and overall experience. A great place to refuel.... More

We stopped for lunch at the packed Laurels. We had hardly sat down when a waiter gave us a menu. Ordered lunch and were quickly served. For dessert we ordered the Bannoffee Pie which was our only mistake stopping there. The graham crust was rather thick and hard so ended up just eating the pie filling. Clean and busy. We... More

Visited The Laurels for seafood chowder which was delicious. Great example of an Irish pub but a poor representation of Irish hospitality. Being in the heart of Killarney there was a majority of customers in the 'tourist' bracket. Our waitress was having an 'off day' and was abrupt to say the least. End of a long season? A group of...

We were an American family having a hard time finding a great pub experience until we came here. We loved it! The food was really good (my potato & celery soup was delicious and the brown bread divine!), the drinks were tasty (Jameson with Ginger & lime - YUM), and the service was so friendly. The owner chatted us up... More

We ate in the restaurant the first time; in the pub the second. Very nice atmosphere. Good food. The wait staff was crazy-busy, but still managed to be attentive.

the 5 of us liked it so much - we'll all go back. the starter with the mussels is awesome, a bit spicy for those who don't like spices but for me it was perfect. the bread is a pleasure. the fish&chips was as it should be, all the way. Recommended. Really!

We stopped in for dinner, but they had stopped serving. It wasn't late by our standards but this town stops by 9:30. The staff was very friendly so we stuck around for a couple drinks. The food people were eating did look good. If we didn't leave the next day, we would have gone back for dinner.
