Perfect place to warm up with a pint near the fire. Courtney's has a huge selection of beers and ciders - definitely something for everyone.

We were sick of Irish stouts and stumbled on this place with a great selection of local microbrew. Great atmosphere with a fireplace, highly recommend. No food.

If I lived in Killarney, this would be my pub -- small, rustic, great beer selection. I'd be a regular if I could

Courtney's was my favourite pub in Killarney!! It was a real old Irish pub & super cosy. If you can nab a table by the fire it's just lovely. They have a great selection of beers and whiskey.
