Good beer tap choices. Try the Guinness Hophouse 13! Irish music in the front at 9 , bands in the back at 11. Good spot to hang out with folks - few local, many tourists. Not the best Guinness pour but it will do.

This is our 3rd visit to Killarney and once again The Laurels became our local. Friendly atmosphere, good Guinness & Bulmers and TV too. And for the techno phobes - no wifi.

We dined in Killarney 4 nights and this was by far the best food. The seafood plate and potato cakes were both very good. Fun pub atmosphere and the standard (poor) level of service you expect in pubs.
