“nice little pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

we ordered veggie lasagna and fish n chips! the food was pretty good and also very filling! i think they might have different cooks bc when we went back the fish n chips were oily, but overall it was pretty good.

“Very Nice and Well Prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We were part of a stag group.... 9 of us in total.. We stayed here in the rooms upstairs but also used the bar downstairs for a few beers and breakfast the following morning....

Arrived and very friendly at the desk, the breakfast next morning was AMAZING! They even held on for a few of our party that were suffering slightly from the night before....

Very Friendly, Rooms were very nice and the whole set up was very enjoyanle...

Extremely good value for money.. Big thanks to Kay and Denis for looking after us the following morning when our heads were a little sore....

I would recommend this place to any Stag or Group that are looking for accomadation in Killarney... It is located very close to all the bars and the staff were really nice as I said... The fry up the next morning saved my life....

“Nice Irish pub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Nothing special about this. There were more Americans in the pub than Irish. Food was average and the beer was good.
