Ate here with friends while visiting and the food was very good. I had the thai mussels and they were delicious while my son went for the very irish taco salad! The service good and the place was very busy and popular.

Dinner here started brilliantly with pollite and quick service. Food came rather quickly and both portions were allright, could even say pretty tasty.

We went to Laurels Pub during our stay in Killarney following the good reviews here on Tripadvisor and I think they are well deserved overall. The place seems to be always crowded so we managed to sit after our third attempt and a little wait. I cannot really say that it's worth this kind of wait, but for sure you're... More
