To any women reading this, PLEASE DO NOT GO HERE.

Firstly, I cannot fault the 2 staff members I met. I did not catch their names but from what I can gather, they were mother and son.

What I can fault is the older locals. A local man completely harassed me. All he saw was a woman in her 20s and beelined for me. Stood no more than 15cm from my face asking was a married, "is that a skirt?", demanded I "take off my mask" (covid times) amongst many other things. I felt absolutely terrified. His friends were as daunting, laughing and jeering at his disgusting antics. From what I can see from the pictures, he is branded a 'local hero'. He and his friends are nothing less than disgusting and stuck in the past, a past that I won't accept.

After asking this man to move and leave me alone, what did he do? He moved closer and stood his ground. A group of men jeering at a woman is terrifying.

The mentality of "ah sure that's only (insert name)" is simply not good enough. I had to shout "get out of my way/move/LEAVE ME ALONE" at least 5 times so that he would get the picture. His friends made feeble attempts to dampen the situation.

We then moved to the lane way bar and when asked why we had moved we were met with "ah yeah". NOT good enough.

If you are a woman or in a group with a women in it, avoid this pub. Left shaking and felt physically ill after this.

Hopefully this will help at least 1 woman from avoiding this place!

Best in Killarney
Oct 2018 • Couples
A proper locals Irish Pub which welcomes locals and tourists, the pub itself has real character and is indeed populated by true local ‘characters’. The pub is run by charming down to earth people, who will chat away to you and give you any information you need about the locality.

The pint of Guinness here is as good as any I’ve ever had.

The pub is truly a step-back in time and by that I mean there is good and bad. It’s a little worse for wear in some places but in a way that does add to the overall charm.

I think it is my favorite pub in Killarney

Great bar with friendly people. Very cozy and authentic, very warm service. Came with my O’Shea cousin to see a family-named pub and was not disappointed! Great Guinness, will come back!

This is my favourite pub in Killarney. It's tiny but welcoming with space for about 10-15 patrons.

The only is friendly as were the customers. It's quaint and unique, long may it continue as it is.

Sweet little lady owner pours a pint with a smile. Small quiet pub on the main drag. Missed seeing the gran pour a pint from his step stool.

Favourite Pub in Ireland
Sep 2017 • Solo
I was looking for somewhere to have a pint and the moment I walked in the door I knew I had picked the right place. I was greeted by the little yorkie Ginny who was just adorable. The owners and locals were absolutely lovely, I was given so much local knowledge for my travels and loved it so much I went back the next night. If I was staying in Killarney longer, I'd go back again. This was my favourite pub experience in Ireland and I have no hesitation in saying I'd come back to Killarney just for a pint here. Do yourselves a favour and stop in for a drink or 3. You won't regret it.

Great "Local" Pub
May 2017 • Couples
We stopped in for a pint and stayed for a few. Joan and her dog "Ginny" were super welcoming and very hospitable. This was a warm, welcoming place and the regulars were a hoot. We'd definitely go back and strongly suggest dropping in for a pint if you're in Killarney.

Jack C's Bar with Joan
Apr 2017 • Couples
My husband & I have been visiting Ireland for almost 2 weeks & have visited several pubs. All have been wonderful but we just happened to stop in at Jack C's in Killarney and were overwhelmed by the owner, Joan, her friendly, welcoming personality. Her dog Ginny as well! Loved that little dog! Best pub experience! Warm and welcoming!

It was raining out so I decided to pop into this bar until it died down. The owner was so friendly and amazing. I drank a pint of the local beer while we enjoyed a nice chat....she even offered for me to keep her umbrella! True Irish hospitality. Well worth a stop for a pint.
