Had a family lunch here. They have a decent kids menu. Quite traditional food. Fish chips were good. My wife has a fish pie which was tasty. It’s a busy place which is a good sign. Price was mid range. Service was friendly and timely.

What a great time. Lots of laughs with the locals. Good food and drink makes this a must stop for anyone looking for a good time in Killarney. Check out the men’s room (never thought I’d ever say that on a TripAdvisor post). Enjoy!!!!

Great atmosphere, just like a typical Irish pub. Service friendly and many choices of beers. No live music, though.

The Laurels Pub deserves to go up a notch or two in the ratings for three reasons - the ambiance, the food and the service - all three were excellent. Touring Ireland, and having a thirst for beer, we decided that we would only have...More

This is right in the middle of things in Killarney's old town. The owner was very friendly and the food was served up quick for takeaway. We walked back to the Randles hotel and the food was still nice and hot. Salad and dressing was...More
