This is "the" place for music. Traditional sessions early and full bands at night. We all had a blast here and just couldn't leave the music. This is a must if your looking for good music.

This charming Irish pub had musicians playing traditional Irish music in the front room. Although it was quite packed, the music was picked up by microphones and piped throughout the place. We ended up in the back room which had a stage with rock band gear on it. After the traditional Irish band stopped (at around 10:30 p.m.), a rock... More

Stayed two nights in Killarney last week - October 17th & 18th, 2016. The first night we got in late and ended up having some whiskey in the hotel pub. The second night we managed to get back from our sightseeing early enough to have dinner and check out Killarney's nightlife. We ate at Cronin's (which does a great seafood... More

Stumbled across this pub after dinner, drawn by the traditional irish music we could hear from outside, enjoyed the atmosphere so much we visited a second time during our stay in Killarney. There seems to be live music every night with a couple of different groups before the club opens. It's certainly a popular place, but arriving about 20:30 we... More

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
