Was advised to go to JM Reidy to buy a slice of cake by some girls having coffee beside at a shop just around the corner so followed the advice. After buying the cake decided to use the toilets which were at the back of...the shop and was amazed with what I found. It was like stepping back in time and discovered various snug compartments, hideaways bars for beer or cocktails and a sweet shop. I am afraid that I cannot do the place justice with words so can only say...YOU MUST GOMore

Just had a coffee here...lovely atmospheric pub... Old shop fittings, excellent coffee, central location for people watching. Top marks to the young energetic staff who have a lovely blend of informality and service. Very charming especially if you re a tourist and its tour main...interaction with locals.More

Cozy pub, mixed public. Enough staff to serve everyone a pint in time. Besides the regular beers like Heineken and Murphy's they also serve Island's Edge from draught. Smooth and tasteful stout beer and for sure I want more of this stout.

Such a unique venue, it's worth a walk around. So many nooks and crannies. There are loads of different bars, a pizza place, multiple stages with live music. There was lots of staff you would never be waiting for a drink. A really friendly place...and the staff were great to deal with. It would suit couples, friend, big groups of people. Everyone is covered here!More

We went to Reidy’s for lunch on a trip to Killarney on a Thursday afternoon. Everyone agreed that everything was up to an amazing standard. For Killarney, everything was reasonably priced and the portions were very generous. Our waitress Sinead was nothing but accommodating and...friendly, making us all feel taken care of. There was 11 of us and we were waiting no time for drinks or our dinner. Highly recommend a visit here if you’re in Killarney !More

Very good bar, good cocktails and music, pity to have been served by a very rude and not professional with no desire to do his job or give good service. It's hard to win customers But easy to lose them. Hope they improve customer service

Our Waiter at dinner sent us here - said it “goes on for miles”. It was great! Cute little cubbies, excellent guitarist up front. Then we went out back. Open air - band with a fiddle player. So much fun! We loved it!

I’m sorry I don’t know for sure. . I do think Killarney is fairly relaxed in general about these official hours though provided kids are supervised .
