Stopped for a pint of Guinness and the locals were very friendly along with the bartenders. They were busy but were always looking to make sure no one was waiting for a drink. I left a bag with a local purchase and to my surprise it was turned in and was able to pick up the next day.

Had a very good meal here. The seafood was lovely. I'd recommend this restaurant. The décor in the restaurant part of the pub is a bit tired, so I wouldn't choose it for a special meal.

Pub food and a welcoming hostess made this a good spot for dinner on a busy rally weekend. The fish and chips were good as we're the crab claws and soup and brown bread. There were lots of tables of tour bus visitors which made for loud conversations and noisy atmosphere.

The Laurels was recommended by someone I knew from high school, and she was absolutely right. Food was wonderful, my daughter said her fish & chips were the best she ever had. Service was also great.

Fantastic lamb stew, giant, tender pieces of lamb with root vegetables and potatoes. It all came together perfectly. My wife ordered a pizza, not the place to order a pizza I guess, it was awful. The pepperoni had a great flavor, but the cheese was disgusting. I love the decor, funny thing though ... they have a Guinness Extra Stout... More

The food was quite good ... the Guinness was excellent as would be expected. Our server was great and the patrons were a lot of fun ... even helped us better understand the game of rugby!

When we were staying in Killarney on a recent tour we were looking for someplace to get dinner. The Laurels Pub was recommended by our tour director and she was right. This was a great place for dinner. When we went in, about 5pm, I guess it was between lunch and dinner service as we were told they were prepping... More
