Les, Les, Les and Les. HE was the best waiter we have ever had. Made us feel right at home and like we were five star guests. He knows his stuff too and recommended the best tastes per person. He is five start all the way.

Arrived late in the evening and didn't feel like walking in the cold so I went to Hannigan's in my hotel. This had to be the best meal I have had on this trip and possibly one of the best things I have ever eaten. If you are a seafood fan, I would highly recommend the Seafood Pancake. Sounds a... More

We both had fish. Well presented and really tasty. Portions quiet big. Service is excellent especially from the more mature waiters. They represent the best of Kerry friendliness. Chocolate dessert was fab. Lovely breads also. Seems to be frequented by locals as well as visitors.

Food was OK but nothing special. Had some fish and beef plates, probably the fillet was very good while the sirloin and the salmon were average. Deserts were very good.
