It does not require reservations and we had no problems getting seated. Warning to the gentlemen, watch out for the proprietor, he will showers the ladies with his... More

This pub has a great atmosphere and great staff. My girlfriend and I both had the Irish stew and it was the best Irish stew I've ever had, and they pour a great pint of Guinness so what more could you ask for.

A traditional pub in the centre of Killarney. A cold winter day, sitting by the fire, eating really good soup, friendly staff. Hard to beat!

We came here after searching for an Irish pub that was open around 3pm. It was so cozy inside and had such a great atmosphere. We got a Guinness beer and for lunch, I had the potato cake. Absolutely delicious! The staff were friendly and such characters. The service was fast as well. The meals were so big and so... More

We received several recommendations for dining in Killarney, and this was one of them. I had the seafood chowder, and it was very good, and (with a beer) quite filling. They also had a better beer selection than many of the other pubs in town.
