It's a lovely pub with great atmosphere. We have ordered a portion of chowder to share and main and were nicely suprised when the waiter brought 2 half bowls, with bread so that we don't have to fight over it, we though it was a great touch and sign they care about customer experience. And the chowder was wonderful!! Full... More

Went here on St Patrick's day, so busy enough! Service is a bit hit & miss, however I was dining solo, so used to being ignored to an extent! However, the steak is to die for, a really quality piece of meat and cooked to a tee as requested. Would go again, purely for the sheer enjoyment of the steak.

The restaurant was quite large but empty as it was off season and was a little past dinner time.The menu here is similar to many other... More

Our double family birthday party was completely ruined by our shocking experience at The Jarvey's Rest. We booked for eight people and dropped two birthday cakes to the venue in the afternoon. Our booking was for 8pm. We were shown to a table that was unset. We ordered a drink at the table and our order was not taken until... More

Went here with friends on Saturday 5th Nov. It was about 3pm. We were staying in nearby hotel which I have reviewed separately. The service was seriously lacking. I ordered a side portion of chips with my fish cakes. The food arrived and I was nearly finished bout no chips had come. A young black haired waitress who hadn't taken... More

We were with a very large group of about 30 people. We had a fixed menu to choose from, so I can't comment on too many of the menu items. My husband did order a steak and it was delicious. I ordered the salmon, but found it too strong and was unable to eat it. The atmosphere was wonderful and... More

While visiting Killarney, my wife and I went to The Jarvey's Rest for an Irish dinner. We were not disappointed. The food is authentic and delicious! I had the fish and chips and my wife had lamb. The pub has a vast variety of ale and beer. The service was excellent and very attentive. Several servers stopped at our table... More
