Best night in ages
Jul 2021 • Friends
Sat outside (during covid) and had a boy come out to our table all night and look after us with drinks (Fiachra). Really good service with lots of choice of drinks. We payed after every round which worked well. The atmosphere on the street was fantastic with a busker playing his guitar just beside us. Couldn’t have worked out better x

Spent a couple of nights having drinks in Courtneys during our stay in Killarney. Due to Covid restrictions, there was only outdoor seating available. Staff were friendly, helpful and overall provided a very good service.

We were in tonight and Niall served us. He was so lovely and helped us any time needed. Couldn’t have asked for a nicer server. Always checking to make sure if we needed anything and ensuring everything was okay with us, so impressed with him! Such a lovely fella would recommend to anyone

We come here for dinner after having an awful experience with staff in Scott's hotel that were very rude .The staff here were amazing and very welcoming and friendly and had a good few giggle with the staff. We will be returning again.

Wonderful pub with a cozy atmosphere!

My friends and I stopped at Courtney's for drinks on the recommendation of a local and were not disappointed. The bartender was very professional with quick service and friendly conversation. There was a fireplace by the bar and our entire party was extremely grateful for the opportunity to dry off and warm up after one of the typical Irish rain showers.

Cosy Traditional Bar
Nov 2019 • Couples
We randomly decided to check out this bar and what a find! Good cosy layout with nice lighting and great pints. There was no live music the night we were there but the DJ played brilliant music at a good volume. Our favourite bar in Killarney so far!

Thanks for positive review, the weather can be a bummer but a nice open fire with a little hot toddy can warm the cockles of your heart!!

Popped in her for a few drinks, lovely bar, friendly staff and we enjoyed the crossword they have for customers.
Went for a drink after dinner the following night and there was great live music in the place. Good buzz about the pub.

Thanks for positive review. The crosswords are a firm favourite of many locals and visitors alike and have initiated many conversations. Music is also intrinsic to the bar and indeed many musicians choose to make us their local!
