Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great pints and music! This is a gem of pub in the centre of Killarney town. Really enjoyed the music and the atmosphere was very chilled. Staff friendly but could definitely see they were under pressure like most places, so fair play guys.

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

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.

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!
