We stopped here on our way from Kenmare to Dingle for lunch. Food was good and the staff were friendly which was a welcome change.

Our driver, who is a local, recommended the Laurels. We dined here on a busy weekend night and the waitress went out of her way to set a table for us. My husband enjoyed the Irish lamb stew and I the chicken and potato pie. Both were delicious. Good food + good people = good dining experience.

Wonderful food and service -- we were in Killarney 4 nights and ate here three of them!! The fish and chips were quite a hearty meal.

The staff seated us quickly on a busy Saturday night. I had the mutton stew while my wife had the fish and chips. We both enjoyed our choices a great deal.

We visited here on our first night in Ireland at the recommendation of our hotel's bartender. We ate early so getting a table was easy and service efficient. Meals of lamb shank, roasted hake and lamb stew were fresh, well prepared and hearty.

Good location in the center of town but found the food to be average. It is often crowded and not worth the wait. We did not return a second time.

We stopped in for fish and chips. The dish was decent. The service, however, was lacking. Great location in the heart of Killarney.

Great spot for lunch, right at the end of the main street, perfect place to stop for a sandwich and a pint; there were four of us in our party and each of us had a different sandwich, none of us were disappointed. Friendly and accommodating service by all involved. Good mix of tourists and locals.

We wandered into this cozy place on a rainy evening. We received a warm and friendly welcome and were seated at a table on the pub side. The food was traditional pub food and was delicious. In fact, the young man sitting next to us ended up ordering two of the same meal, he enjoyed it so much! The portion... More
