This restaurant was recommended to me and it was very good. I had a chicken dish, my mom the bacon and cabbage, and my friend the surf and turf. The place is a busy one and not romantic but serves delicious food with decent portions....More

Locals and tourists alike enjoy the atmosphere here...worth a stop. There is a restaurant on one side with good food, but we ate in the pub, and it was great! Gets crowded which is the fun part....great selection of beers too, of course. Cheers!

We ate lunch at The Laurels on 9/23/18. This pub is located in the heart of Killarney and is very convenient to wonderful shops. The shepherds pie and brews were outstanding.

I've frequented this pub on many occasions(15?). The food is very good and fairly priced. You will find a mixture of locals and foreigners. A nice mixture. Few Americans which appeals to me when traveling abroad. The staff including the owner are exceptional.

Party of four on a Sunday evening with no reservation, and they took good care of us. Seafood was well prepared, the lamb was excellent, and the setting comfortable. A good selection of local beers and a friendly, knowledgeable staff make this an easy recommendation.
