Impeccable service and outstanding menu from top to bottom. Local seafood and authentic dishes. Steaks are to die for. Seafood chowder addictive. Service is second to none. Dining room staff from lunch to dinner will make your stay enjoyable and a very pleasant experience!

Ate here one night we were staying in the International Hotel. We were advised to book as it was a Friday night and sure enough the restaurant was full. The service was top class and the food was delicious. Desserts are probably a bit over priced for what they are but the main courses were great.

We had dinner at Hannigan's. The staff was friendly but the food was lacking. The steaks which we got for the kids were over cooked and tough, for the price this was really a bit disappointing. I found the food to be average at best. This really felt like the hotel restaurant that it is. The atmosphere just did not... More

Great Food and Good Atmosphere. Located directly behind the Killarney Towers Hotel. Get there early before 6pm, since it is a hot location tables will fill up fast. Very good service.

Stayed in the International Hotel several nights and spent the last night at Hannifin's. Service was impeccable, the wine list very good (Malbec was a nice vintage) and the food was fantastic. After the meal I wandered to the bar for the live music while mom stayed back at the restaurant and chatted. Wonderful atmosphere.
