Kirby's Brogue Inn is a landmark in Tralee, the capital town of County Kerry and it's only 30 minutes from two tourism strongholds, Killarney and Dingle.

At Kirby's we believe in local and that inspires

everything we do. We know that using fresh, local

ingredients makes a difference to our customers.

Whether you are enjoying an evening out with

friends and family, or having a quick lunch when

you're too busy to cook, experience Kirby's.

Kirby's Brogue Inn invites you to enjoy the best night-time music entertainment in Tralee in a comfortable setting. If you're mad for trad, we have only the best Traditional Irish Music in the bar and the most established local talent perform live on Saturday nights.

Saturday night in a very busy bar/restaurant - what could go wrong? In this case absolutely nothing. There are numerous staff not only for the bar but also the waiting of tables. We didn't order anything out of the ordinary for main course and it was all cooked and served well. The Baileys cheese cake was excellent. I couldn't decide... More

My husband and I spent two nights in Tralee in September and enjoyed our first evening at Kirby's Brogue Inn so much we went back the second night. I can't say enough about the attentive and friendly service. The food was exceptional. The Bailey's cheesecake (made in-house) was heavenly.

8 of us ate here (including the bride and groom) the day after their wedding. Their was an extensive menu and daily specials. The only problem this created was that it was extremely difficult to choose. Orders were taken quickly by a very pleasant and helpful waiter. There was no delay with the food and it was fab-u-lous. The owner... More
