I ordered a side portion of chips with my fish cakes. The food arrived and I was nearly finished bout no chips had come. A young black haired waitress who hadn't taken... More

We were with a very large group of about 30 people. We had a fixed menu to choose from, so I can't comment on too many of the menu items. My husband did order a steak and it was delicious. I ordered the salmon, but found it too strong and was unable to eat it. The atmosphere was wonderful and... More

While visiting Killarney, my wife and I went to The Jarvey's Rest for an Irish dinner. We were not disappointed. The food is authentic and delicious! I had the fish and chips and my wife had lamb. The pub has a vast variety of ale and beer. The service was excellent and very attentive. Several servers stopped at our table... More

A simple order of garlic bread and fish chowder for two should have been easily managed, but it wasn't. The chowder was not as hot as it should be and the garlic bread arrived with cheese on it. We did not ask for cheese and, worse, my companion has an allergy to cheese. Something like this should not have happened.... More

This was the closest place to eat from the place we were staying. It was a nice place to eat. We got there before it was busy. The food and drinks were good. You got a lot of food and the price was fair. I very much enjoyed eating here.

... Jarvey's Rest is a bigger location. Because of that used to expected as an average, not so Jarvey's. Top service, top food, even while a seafoodshowder and a sirlon steak were shared by two persons. Next day, next order: burger and a sirlon steak. Again food and service of high quality. Highly recommended Thank you, any time again.

Enjoyed the hospitality, the entertainment, and the food was very good. Sat here for quite some time listening to the live music. They even take requests, and i was fortunate enough to get my favorite " The Fields of Athenry" played while we were there. Good service and the portions were great. Enjoyed the local beer as well. Great to... More

Great atmosphere, had a delightful server. We were lucky - live music and Irish dancing. The food was excellent traditional Irish foods and some classic international favorites with modern class. The salmon is a great combination! The local cider is so fresh. We would def go back.
