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.

Fantastic place for a night out in Killarney, Live music in the bar as you enter the place and once live music is finished you walk through into a nightclub.... great time in this place, not to be avoided if in Killarney

The grand is def the best pub in killarney, we always end up there when we come to killarney! We stayed here over the weekend too, the rooms are old fashioned but so clean and beds very comfy. Was so handy to just walk up the stairs after the dj had finished. No doubt we'll be back again in the... More

We walked a short distance from our hotel to this pub. We were told that they had traditional Irish music. We were not disappointed!! The first band had everyone clapping and singing along. You just could help yourself from joining in. The bar had all the offerings that you could imagine and, as busy as they were, the service was... More

We were quite impressed! Although don't kid yourself; This is very much a tourist spot. Regardless, the punts were fresh, the music was humming, and we wish we had got there a tad earlier than 9:30 for better seats.

Coming from the U.S. four women playing golf in Ireland, we found Killarney and the grand one of our best memories, John the conceierge was so friendly and helpful. From parking our car carrying our bags giving us directions, he could not of be more deadly as they say. I think that means spectacular! Billy at the bar was just... More
