One of the few places, other than on Okemo mountain, that serves lunch in Ludlow, VT. We enjoyed the food and the service was fine for such a busy time. Tasty hamburger and the clams/mussels in broth was delicious.

We felt quite at home in this Irish style pub. Wait staff were friendly and helpful. My husband was very impressed with the selection of single malts both Scottish and Irish. Service was prompt and the food served matched the menu description. Menu items are typical British pub fare and on the high side. Restaurant is clean and has many... More

Service was great, food was good (wings and roast beef sandwich), beer was cold. Not too much parking when it's busy (we didn't go one day because of that) but the next day, before the slopes closed, parking was better.

I'm glad you enjoyed some food and beer with us here at The Killarney and thanks for letting me know you were happy with everything. As for the parking, our lot sometimes becomes more crowded during the ski season, but we hope this won't prevent you from stopping by again. Thanks for your message, and have a great day. Warmly,...

Bartender made a Mai Tai even thought it's not on normal menu. It was pretty good. Food came out quick and the Mashed with cabbage was yummy.

We drive thru Ludlow often living in MA with a place in Vt. Am very surprised at the low ratings. Luckily for us we tried it first before checking the ratings. Parking lot was nearly full. We were greeted by a very personable young lady who asked if we wanted a high top or low table. We were seated immediately... More

It's wonderful to hear the service and food were both impressive, though I'm sorry we weren't able to impress more. I'll have to keep an eye on the slow service you mentioned, and I really hope we'll have the chance to welcome you in again someday. I'm confident we can really take it up a notch for you! All the...

We tried Reuben sandwich and fish and chips. Not too bad. Corned beef and cabbage rolls were worth to try. Our server was nice and many choices of wine and beer. Right next to okemo resort entrance. If you like Irish pub, this is a place to go.

We ate here on a quiet Saturday afternoon. The hostess seated us and brought water. There were a few other tables but it certainly didn't seem busy. After about 10 minutes the waitress took our order. After 10 more minutes someone else brought the drinks to us. After 25 minutes the waitress appeared and said, they were out of the... More

I'm sorry to hear that we didn't quite meet your expectations during your visit here. We know how important quality service is around here, so we're sorry to hear that the serving order, service time line, and burger preparation was a bit off. This isn't like us, and we'll be sure to look into this with our team right away... More
