“Great food in an inviting atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

We were staying at the conjoined International Hotel and initially dismissed the staff's restaurant recommendation as potentially biased; however, after walking a bit through the town centre we didn't find anything that appealed to us more, so we returned. At 6:00 p.m. mid-week the place was nearly deserted, but by the time we returned at 7:30, the place was packed and we had to wait a half hour for a table. This was okay, because the adjacent bar offers a great pub atmosphere and a tasty pint. For dinner, I had the pan-seared salmon, which was perfectly seasoned, moist and flaky. My wife ordered the grilled sirloin steak, which was delicious and as tender as a filet. The prices are not cheap, but are commensurate with other restaurants in Ireland, and you will get a fresh, delicious meal and overall satisfying dining experience. We heartily recommend this place!

“Best Fish and Chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

We found Hannigan's by walking by and looking at the menu. We all ordered the same thing and all four of us thought the fish and chips was the best we've ever had. Light, fresh and amazing. I only wish I stayed in Killarney for two nights so I could go back to Hannigan's again.

Dear Edward M,

With a heading like that, we are delighted you chanced upon us on your walk around Killarney! We have a great selection of seafood on our lunchtime and evening menus, including Oven-Roasted Monkfish Tail, Baked Fillet of Cod, Pan Seared Salmon, Lemon Sole Fillets, Surf ‘n Turf and a Seafood Pancake. I am delighted you all enjoyed your fish and chips and, given that you didn’t have the chance to return again, I hope that you found somewhere nice on your travels outside Killarney!

With many thanks again for your kind review,
Tanya O’Shea
