Inconsistent policies, unable to reserve wing nite, unless you know someone to make exceptions. Finished golf & we're turned away on wing nite, area reserved for special group (not there). Must be nice to turn away group of 20+ patrons, soon to be ex-patrons

We used to go to Kilarneys occasionally because they offered GF wings and GF pizza. After a long hiatus, we were disappointed upon our recent visit by the very limited menu now offered (GF and otherwise). The chicken wings are offered on the menu as "gluten reduced", however are cooked in the same fryer as everything else - making them... More

I keep trying this pub and each time I am disappointed with the food. New owners, new menu lets give it a 10th attempt. Last time I had a very bland shepherds pie, this time I went for chicken wrap and fries. It was OK. My husband (against my advise) when for the shepherds pie and was ill for two... More

Went for breakfast on a Sunday. The place was empty aside from a table of 7 and we still waited 45 minutes for our food (coffee took awhile too). Moreover, it felt like we were being ignored by the waitstaff- a quick 'we'll be right with you' or 'hello' upon entering would have made me a bit more patient. Instead... More

Went with a group of friends for Sunday night pizza. It was good, not too greasy, lots of toppings. The service was good and unobtrusive. Not the best pizza ever, but reasonable in price and good for a night with friends. The deep fried pickles were a hit with our group as well.

Visited with my mom and had amazing guiness mussels while my mom had the bacon wrapped scallops. Both were great and went really well with the incredible selection of beer. Great atmosphere!

We have tried to go here 5 times as its a pub that allows families. Each time we have waited over 45 minutes for food. The beer selection is good and reliable. The servers are fast and very empathetic it is very evident it's a kitchen problem.

We came here because a friend had heard they were selling beers from Half Hitch Brewing company and he wanted to give them a try. The place was not busy so we had no problem getting seated and we soon had beers in hand. I understand they recently changed ownership which was bringing a change in the menu so my... More

After having visited several pubs in Ireland, this place reflects the spirit of those establishments very well! A good pint of Guinness, well poured, and delightful pub fare, from appetizers to main dishes. I particularly enjoy the Angry Irish Chicken Wings!
