We were told the 'Grand' was grand by our hotel concierge and the place did not disappoint. 3 music venues- trad Irish music upfront, live band in the middle bar and disco dance floor in the rear. Open late which we found is NOT the case in most places. We want especially thank Stephen and Shane the bouncers. They were... More

This is a definite need to try for all. We spent 2 days in Kilarney during a visit to Ireland and both nights we ended up here for drinks and music. The atmosphere is incredible. I highly recommend this stop on your next night out in the beautiful Kilarney, Ireland.

The live music started with Irish Folk and then around 10pm it went to rock! The atmosphere is cozy and relaxed. Have a pint and sit back or put on your dancing shoes! The locals don't mind a left footed partner. You can also request to play with the band if you are a musician!

A friend of mine suggested that we go to this pub for great live local music. We were shopping in Killarney and then went to the bar. Everyone was very friendly, the music was good and the pints were great. We had some local craft beers, one being Killarney beer. Two areas have music - the front of the bar... More

We went here on a Saturday night. Recommend you try get here as early as possible, however it probably won't make a difference. It has everything you need on a night out. Upstairs they have a cocktail bar, the main door leads to a bar with a band and everyone basically stands in this part I think I seen 2... More

Loved the bar, there are three areas, traditional music, live band and disco. Something for everyone and all in one place. Very busy but great bar staff. Fun night out, all age groups, lots of tourists.

The early birds can catch a great show in the front of the bar beginning around 7 or 8 pm. As the night wears on, Spailpin will take the stage in the back and they will play well into the night! Both sets were great. Bar was packed with friendly locals and visitors alike - made several friends! Beware of... More

We were drawn to this pub by the music we could hear from the outside and were not disappointed. The traditional Irish music played there was quite an experience, as was the singer. Not surprisingly, the Grand was absolutely packed on the three nights we visited the place.
