After some last minute Christmas shopping and a Sleigh ride around town it was time for lunch. It was cold, we were tired and hungry, so we walked into The Laurels. It was a good choice as the staff were efficient and friendly, the food was abundant and came quickly, and the menu choice was ample.

The Laurels is an excellent Pub for food and drink. The menu is chock full of great Irish dishes that define comfort food. The service is fantastic as well and the Guinness is always cold and perfectly drawn. If you are visiting Killarney and don't stop in for a bite and a pint you will be missing one of the... More

We stopped in for a late lunch while shopping on the high street. Staff were very welcoming. Service was prompt and friendly. We ordered a shepherds pie and a club sandwich. Both were tasty and fresh. The sandwich was made with sliced chicken and ham, not just deli meat. Fries were hot and fresh. Lunch for two with a Guinness... More

Recommended to stop into Laurels - we did once evening - has a great bowl of Irish Stew and of course a glass of Guiness Beer. Great entertainment - music, Irish Step dancers and tons of friendly people - both locals and visitors. Definitely will come back next time we visit.

We went to this pub on the recommendation of locals and they were right. We had a very pleasant pub meal – one had the traditional bacon and cabbage meal with a large slab of bacon; I had fish and chips with all the right "fish&chip" qualities - hot crunchy chips and good batter on the fish; and the 3rd...
