A little stuffy in the beginning but the dinner crowd cleared out and the music began! Drinks were reasonably priced, you had to get them yourself at the bar. We stayed late and talked with the singer/musician and watched the fight and the staff cleaned up and they didn't mind, so nice! I didn't want to leave! Ha

The staff were excellent and very friendly. Also very helpful on where to go and what to see. The food was excellent without being overpriced. It was a quick walk from our accommodation.

A friend and I stopped here after a long day of sightseeing in Killarney. We were tired and needed a good meal to restore ourselves. I had eaten here many years ago.

great food in the Killarney centre. Good service. Very busy during the lunch time so pre-booking is recommended.

We arrived tired and hungry and left Hannigan's rested, relaxed and comfortably full. I'd recently discovered Sticky Toffee pudding and Hannigan's makes some of the best! Impeccable service as well.

Dropped in for lunch with family and couldn't have been treated nicer. Extremely efficient service which is crucial considering you can't pay for more than an hour local parking! Food was excellent and will definitely be back!

Never failed yet to provide excellent food - every meal better than the last - always make a point of heading to Hannigans for meal when every in Killarney - was disappointed one year when it was closed due to unfortunate circumstances - great to see it open and back even better than before

Fantastic service from the moment we got through the door to the moment we left. The food was the best we had on our trip to Killarney and the live music in the bar was just lovely to listen to. 10/10! Nicola & Stephen

I went to this restaurant with a party of 8. We managed to order a good cross-section of items from the menu, and shared samples with one another. Each of the appetizers and mains were excellent. The sticky toffee pudding was superb.

Thank William B
