excellent food, great service

After a minor delay with the starter, we enjoyed a truly wonderful meal. plentiful in portion and reasonable in price. There is plenty of character in the restaurant and pub next door. Well worth a visit.

Located on the Main Street a traditional pub with a good range of drafts. Good food with large portions. Must visit if you are in the town.

We found the service to be satisfactory and the food to be the same. It seems like everyone visits the Laurels because of the reviews, not because of the actual quality. There is nothing specifically wrong with The Laurels, but I feel it lacks soul.

We had a wonderful meal at The Laurels Pub. I got baked fish and my husband got the steak and we were both very happy with our choices.

Right in the middle of town and a close walk from our hotel (Randles Court) and fabulous. When we planned our trip to Ireland, we really weren't expecting it to be as much about the food as the sights. Wow, were we mistaken! We thoroughly enjoyed the food, throughout Ireland, and the Laurels definitely delivered. My husband had some sort... More

Four or more people dining together? Having trouble deciding where to go? Laurels is a great option. Their menu is so varied that each person should have no problem finding an old favorite or something new to try. The staff is tops -- very friendly, helpful and great service. I've NEVER had a bad meal here -- always look forward... More

This restaurant is next to the very busy pub and sometimes there is a wait for tables however the food is very good and the waitresses very efficient and will move tables to create the number of seats you require for your party.

A historical pub graced by the lovely Kate and her gracious father. It has an interesting history, originating in the name of a winning greyhound at Wimbledon, whose trophy adorns the gantry. Excellent food and atmosphere, but, most importantly, this is not so much a pub as a meeting place where the conversation never ends,,,,with Joe at the bar, and... More

Cute pub with open fires, friendly atmosphere and staff. I've been here a few times in the evening for drinks when in killarney and have always found the place welcoming and enjoyable. Recently went here for lunch and the food is nice - perfect pub lunch. The bartender that served us was lovely.

I travel to Killarney frequently and I mainly have my lunch at The Laurels Pub. The food is consistently good with a wide variety on the menu and it is good value price wise. The Laurels is a quaint Irish Pub and it is frequented by a lot of local people as well as tourists. The pub is in the... More
