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.

Although rather busy and therefore a slightly manic air among the staff Laurel's proved to be a great choice for some traditional and well cooked Irish cuisine. The stew had a depth of flavour like nothing I've tasted and the mussel portion was both enormous and supremely fresh! A definite find.

We're 6 days in Ireland and this is the best meal yet. Don't miss it. Atmosphere, service and taste is great.

Poor service. Can't believe the good reviews food wise. Not fresh - frozen. Particularly mussels - frozen and overcooked. Full of holidayers who were all equally dissapointed at the food. Dishes left on table despite bringing main courses. All in all frustrated I wasted a dinner here.

We found our way to The Laurels after 18 hours of traveling from the states. Being it wa sour first time in Ireland, I had to try the fish and chips and a pint of Guinness. It was very good! We went in for dinner around 6 and found the place completely empty. The wait staff was friendly, prompt, and... More

We wound up here when we couldn't get a table at Bricin and it turned out to be a great place. The food was very good, the staff friendly and the atmosphere was quite good. It is small so we ended up sharing a table with another couple but the evening turned out quite good - I would eat here... More
