“Go for the Irish music and to meet people from Killarney”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

My niece and I went to Hannigan's for the Irish music our last night in Killarney. We had the best time singing along, people watching and meeting the locals. This pub is a lot more intimate than the Killarney Grand for Irish music. Hannigan's and the folks we met were a definite highlight of our trip!

“So friendly”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

I haven't eaten in this bar but just wanted to compliment the amazing friendly staff. Being a local I visit some of the bars in the town but the staff here are so friendly and also they serve a lovely glass of wine, not from the small bottles but a proper glass of wine. Just wanted to say in my opinion the most friendly bar in town.

“Great Meal & Service”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

With two adults and three children we called in around 6ish hoping for a table for 5. Staff were absolutely excellent and very helpful and sorted us a table. The food was amazing and only slightly beaten by the service. The second visit three days later, now joined by the 17 year old!, we booked to ensure we got a table. On the last day we asked the kids were they wanted to go and a unanimous answer to back to Hannigans.

Hi Sandra O,

How are you today? Thank you for your kind review. Nice to know that we kept both the adults and the children happy. It's no mean feat. I'm so happy and thankfully that you and your family decided to dine with us on three occasions. There can be no greater compliment. Well wishes.

“Excellent food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

The food at Hannigan's was delicious, their fish and chips (Lemon sole) were one of the best I had during my stay in Ireland. The food is served in quite big quantities and is very reasonably priced. The service was also great, the waiters are friendly and helpful.
