they had the menu posted outside... the pub was very welcoming to our tourist group. I picked this pub due to the LOCAL IRISH FARE. They did not disappoint. My husband had a T-Bone steak and I had the Irish Bacon with the Colcannon, another member of the party had Braised Lamb shank and another had the Guinness stew. All... More

The pub had a great atmosphere. We were a group of 7 and all the staff was very accommodating. The food was delicious and plenty of it! Great place to eat or just hang out with friends!

Gorgeous pub , totally delicious bar food & super friendly staff , the coffees not bad either. Enjoy a lovely bite to eat at lunchtime with a pint , or just pop in for a few for the craic. In the evening call into the restaurant side for the best bacon & cabbage in Killarney .

Recently visited The Laurels for dinner and there's not much to say. The people were super nice, the food was very, very good (the potato cakes were great), and the place was just oozing with traditional Irish atmosphere. It's right in the middle of everything in Killarney, so it's a tad pricey, but that's to be expected, and, unless you're... More

Fish and chips are a must when you go to Ireland. But, where are the best to be found? Here. That's where. You will find excellent food and even better service. The fish and chips were excellent. I did not care for the mashed peas, but the rest of the meal was a big hit. The place is friendly and... More

My boyfriend and I ate at the Laurels recently and we weren't disappointed! Although a Tuesday evening in October, it was packed but we found a cosy table in the bar. The staff were great (friendly, welcoming & attentive) from the moment we arrived so I'm somewhat surprised by some of the negative comments here, maybe an off night. From... More

Visited for lunch. Busy place but a great atmosphere. Great choice on the menu. Can recommend the chicken pie! Service was efficient. Overall, well worth a visit.

Really enjoyed the atmosphere of this pub and we visited Laurels twice during our 3nights in Killarney. The pub was busy and appeared to be a favourite spot. Both times we sat at the bar and conversed with the most friendly smiling bartenders who really seemed to enjoy what they were doing. We enjoyed our meals of Fish Chowder and... More

Truly. I had the best meal in Killarney at this pub. It was fantastic. I wish I could go back. The bartender was a little tentative to warm up but once he did...he knew quite a bit about my state in the US which was impressive to me! The other guy asked me if I had a sister...made my day.... More

Great pub in the middle of Killarney. Always good Craic with a number of loyal locals. Even good for a quick cup a or a basic lunch.
