Central location in Killarney town, this pub does exactly what it says on the tin , great Irish food served in a cosy old style Irish pub. Portions are large and the menu has a good selection. Definitely worth a visit if looking for good Irish pub food

We popped in the pub after my husband and I eloped in Ireland. Very nice staff and charming decor. We even took some of our photos here! The locals didn't seem to mind and several even gave well wishes. :) I wish we could've eaten here because the stew and chowder looked amazing!!!

We stopped in on our 2nd night in Killarney and were very happy with our meal. Reasonably priced and very traditional.

We had the lamb shank and the Irish bacon and cabbage. The portions were huge and the food was really good. This was a very nice dining experience. We would try it again

Just started visiting the Laurels as an after work venue. Great atmosphere and the staff are so welcoming. Many thanks to Dennis and Jamie for the chat. This is a wonderful bar with old world charm and a real fire. New home from home.

Went here at the recommendation of our B&B hosts. The bar was a mix of locals and tourists; young and old. Very comfortable. Excellent Guinness pour! Thanks for the fun.

I don't know what we enjoyed the most the drinks or the bar keeps. Great drinks with a generous pour. Located in a great area downtown with shopping. Stopped for a sandwich and drink and found it to be above expectation. Prices were reasonable.

Had a fab meal here, my husband had the Surf n Turf & I had the Potato Cakes! Food was really good! The staff were extremely friendly & the pub itself had a lovely atmosphere! For a random Thursday in March the place was really busy with a mix of locals & tourists! Always a good sign!!!
