We had dinner in the restaurant. The surf & turfwas the worst one I ever had. Seafood not well cooked, served up with a very thin sauce. This is a nice enough pub with friendly staff but the quality of the food can certainly improve.

Dark woods. Great service. Worth the wait. And the Irish Stew? Savory. Rich. My favorite meal in Ireland. The Laurels is in my top two favorite restaurants we visited during our stay in Ireland.

Wanted a nice pub for lunch for our large group (6 adults, 6 kids) --- The Laurels didn't disappoint. Ordered Shepherds Pie and it was REALLY GOOD. All kids ordered the pizzas and they all agreed they were fantastic. We were able to get a back room where we didn't bother other patrons. All in all -- a solid choice... More

Ate here with my wife. Food and service was good but not exceptional. You may have to wait for a table. It is very touristy as is most places in Killarney.
