Whether you are celebrating a special occasion, unwinding with friends over a frosty pint or feeding the family, The Killarney is the place to be!

Food was very good from the Shepard pie, to the burgers, as well as the BLT. Price was reasonable the server was excellent and the band was first rate. Would go again.

Although the pub had a very extensive menu, we only had Verbacon Burgers, and split a large Caesar Salad. The burgers were cooked as ordered, and were delicious as was the salad. Portions are quite large and we took half a burger with us. Service was attentive and friendly and the Irish music was fun.

You'll have to come back and sample some other items from our menu -- We have a lot of great stuff. I'm happy to note that the burger was cooked just how you like and the service was exceptional! Come see us again sometime. Thanks for the fantastic review. Cheers, Mark - Owner More

The Killarney is our favorite restaurant in Ludlow. The atmosphere is perfect and the food is really good and the staff is always friendly! My favorite appetizer is the potato skins made with wonderful Vermont cheddar!

Went on a Monday night after swinging by at 4 to look at menu two waitresses told us they open at 5. Went back 730 to be greeted by a hostess who said just letting you know we have 1 waitress 1 bartender for whole restaurant looked very busy so we walked out. Very poor planning on their part

We're so sorry for the mix up, Debbie! Unfortunately, due to some unforeseen circumstances, we were understaffed on that Monday evening. This is atypical of us, and I'm going to make sure that this isn't repeated. Sincere apologies, Mark - Owner More

All food was excellent and beer selection was incredible! Service was slow for a Saturday. Many people waited even longer than we did.

I know some of the menu has Irish names for typical American fare, but the real Irish cuisine here is excellent. If you are not sure about real Irish food recipes go online and find out before you go. Bangers and mash, for example, great Irish sausage (the bangers) and mash (mashed potatos mixed with julienne cabbage). The service was... More

You can never go wrong with some great Irish fare, can you? Stop in for more bangers and mash any time you have a craving, and we'll have your fix -- don't forget the Guinness! Looking forward to seeing you again very soon! Cheers, Mark - Owner More

We were desperate to find a drink and a snack this past Tuesday and we quickly learned that we were visiting the area in the off-season. Places were closed or just completely gone out of business. It was by luck that we stumbled into Killarney. They have a good selection of beers on tap, but sadly, no chilled glasses (they... More

We're glad that Tyler could make you feel at home, Debbie. Luckily you stumbled upon us and, as a result, some tasty beers. It seems like Tyler could help you put together a make-shift meal even though we weren't open for dinner service yet. Twice in one day? That means we're doing something right.
