Just started visiting the Laurels as an after work venue. Great atmosphere and the staff are so welcoming. Many thanks to Dennis and Jamie for the chat. This is a wonderful bar with old world charm and a real fire. New home from home.

Went here at the recommendation of our B&B hosts. The bar was a mix of locals and tourists; young and old. Very comfortable. Excellent Guinness pour! Thanks for the fun.

I don't know what we enjoyed the most the drinks or the bar keeps. Great drinks with a generous pour. Located in a great area downtown with shopping. Stopped for a sandwich and drink and found it to be above expectation. Prices were reasonable.

Centrally located. Warm, friendly and cozy. Irish stew and seafood chowder comforting on cold day! Prices reasonable and comparable for location. Service good, pace was not rushed. Nice beer selection. Dinner served in pub for early diners! Would recommend.

The food, service, and atmosphere were great! I recommend seating in the restaurant part and not the pub. Pub seating was very cramped but the restaurant side was quite comfortable for our evening meal. The prices were kind of high for the standard fare but...More

The Location of the restaurant is ideal, right in the centre of the town. The meal itself was quite nice, probably the best bacon and cabbage meal I have ever tasted. The starters were also very good. The decor also very pleasant and it seemed...More

This is a nice bar that we have visited on every trip to Killarney and we were very disappointed on this occasion. The barman was completely involved with the horse racing on television and ignored us. Food was also poor and one customer actually sent...More
