Although the place was almost empty, the hostess seated us all by ourselves in the non-bar side. We are middle-aged, and perhaps don't meet the requirements for the other side. The hostess then seated a family with a crying baby directly next to us, making conversation impossible. We left soon after, never to return.

Please know I hear your frustration about where your hostess sat you, and I agree you should've been seated at a table you felt more comfortable at. I'd love the opportunity to have you back for another try, and I'd be more than happy to seat you at a table that's better suited for you and your party. Thanks for... More

While on vacation with friends we went here for lunch before going to the Hops on the Hill beer festival. The service was excellent and the food was fine. The hamburger very good. Jerk Chicken was excellent and they had a good selection of craft beers. The only real negative was our table location. It felt like we were in... More

A great little Irish pub...service was good.. Atmosphere reminds me of Ireland. Good beer and drink selection. We had the shepards pie and the bangers and mash... Both quite good.. If in the area you should stop here. We stayed in Ludlow for a week and it was the best meal we had by far..

Saw the sign outside proclaiming their Chicken wings as award winning, and they didn't disappoint. Our lips were on fire! Draft beers were larger than a pint, and a good selection. If we hadn't just come from a beerfest, I could've had one, but just stuck with a bottle. Extensive selection of bottled beers, too. Bartender introduced himself and asked... More

We have driven by this place for years and always said we should stop. We weren't disappointed! Fish and chips were great tasting and the hanger steak was delicious and cooked as desired. We will go back again!

So glad you and your family had a chance to stop in and join us for lunch! Ireland's definitely a spot worth traveling to, but in the meantime, it's great to see our food made you feel like you were already there. Hope we'll be seeing you in for another bite to eat soon!

Good food. A little unusual twist on classic Irish food. I had a tuna taco which was really good... boyfriend had fish and chips. Both were delicious. Bill was high, but it was a great meal.

Stopped by the Killarney 2x times during a brief Vermont vacation. The first time was for food( kitchen does not open until 5) Food was good, , Service was better. The next night we returned for a "traditional music session" a bit disappointing but still worth the stop.
