“Great atmosphere, terrible food.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

The ambiance and service at Hannigan's are great but the food is bland and over priced, very disappointed. There were 4 people in my party and only one of the meals in my opinion were considered good.

Great bar for music and atmosphere. Real fire lighting, staff friendly and live music, what more could you ask for!

“Convenient and very good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We ended up eating here twice for dinner since it was near our hotel and it was very cold and rainy. We were expecting more of a "pub" type menu but was pleasantly surprised with the dinner choices and the wine list. Several had the fish and chips and raved. One of us had the duck which was excellent! Service was excellent.

“Excellent food, excellent service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

This was our hotel resturant but was rated so high we had to try it. The seafood chowder was good and came with some nice thick slices of wheat bread. My husband has the duck and as he said, "No chewing required"! I had something that had a funny name but was kinda just chicken strips but the sweet chili sauce it came with was delicious! I'm sure we would have had more if weren't so full already.

“great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Shyly ventured into the restaurant one evening during my stay in Killarney--famished--and was warmly welcomed by Brendan, who soon became my favorite. Thankfully, there was NO "stick-the-middle-aged-solo-traveler-in-a-corner-and-forget-her" treatment. Brendan (and everyone else in the restaurant) was kind and attentive, and the food was awesome--from the salmon to the hake to the pavlova and panna cotta desserts--okay, I ended up going back there every night for the rest of my stay--it was well worth it! I travel on a tight budget, but this place was worth the splurge.
