Lovely staff, decent food and drink

Just spent a couple of days in Killarney in The Malton Hotel. while up the town in the days we headed for the Laurels Pub where the crack was good and the food too. There is a very good atmosphere here and much of this is due to lots of customers from Dublin, and a good influx of foreigners and... read more

We had a great meal at The Laurels, properly warming hearty food. We were so full afterwards that we sadly couldn't sample the dessert menu, but shared the breaded Brie and garlic bread starter, then the Parma ham wrapped chicken and chicken/bacon potato cakes. Make sure you go hungry as the portions are huge! Service was really fast which meant... More

Checked Trip Advisor and found this outstanding pub. There were six in our party, and all we're welcomed by Maggs our waitress. Wonderful pub environment, as well as delicious food. The Laurels definitely knows how to pour a pint of Guinness.

Love The Laurels! Didn't eat here, but it is a great place to have a pint with the locals. Bartender is hilarious - teases you like he has known you forever. Best pub in Killarney.

Decided to pop in the Laurels Pub for a quick bite to eat. Ordered the seafood chowder, it was delicious, loaded with fresh fish, mussels & other tasty bits & large enough/filling enough to share with a friend! Next I had the bacon & cabbage. Not what I was expecting but it was tremendously tasty! The large slab of "bacon"... More

Great pub ,great food, friendly staff, plenty of local people to chat with, well worth a visit. We visit every time we are in Killarney, and they still remember you when you come in, the fire in the hearth is such a welcoming sight, really look forward to going back each visit.

We managed to get a table in The Laurels pub on a Saturday night and were so impressed by the food and service that we went back again the following evening. We tried all the traditional Irish dishes with the exception of the Irish stew, but on the strength of the chowder, bacon and colcannon, Guinness bread, and potato cakes... More

The Laurels provides the pub atmosphere and didn't not compromise on quality of food and service. Has a great time, a great dinner and we went back the next day!
