We actually did not wait for a table very long. The food was good. The service was good too, very friendly. My only negative was my steak was not cooked nearly... More

We had a light supper here after a full day of visiting the Ring of Kerry. The food was delicious and the staff very accommodating..they even divided up a wonderful chicken stir fry into two portions as neither of us could do justice to a full order at that time. Very good.

We arrived 5 minutes before the kitchen closed and the staff immediately found us a seat and assured us that it was no bother. Our waiter for the evening, Les, was friendly, efficient and quite witty. He definitely left us a great impression on the establishment, before we even started eating. The food was delivered quickly, was really nice and... More

Restaurant attached to hotel and popular music bar. Should have read as warning sign as meaning not need to try too hard with food. Was little above average pub food and poor value for money

Though the food was pretty good, it was really the warm, friendly, and helpful staff that made our evening meal at Hannigan's delightful. We felt welcome the minute we walked through the door and the wait staff was happy to accommodate our request to share an entree, the crispy duck, halving and plating it in the kitchen before bringing it...

We recently had a family dinner at Hannigan's during our vacation in Killarney and the 4 of us really enjoyed the food, the service and the ambiance. The salmon, the chicken stir fry and the stuffed lamb (roast of the day) were all delicious. Our waiter(Branden) was very friendly and did an outstanding job!. Would definitely go back.

Put our name in and had a drink at the very fine bar. Short fifteen minute wait for a table. Waiter service is very professional. Menu is typical. Wine list leaves alot to... More
