Really nice country style pub right in the middle of the city centre. Big tourist area and lovely spot for a pint! Worth a visit.

Loved the fish and chips, salad and local Killarney beer. The atmosphere was excellent and busy a little slow on the turn over but well worth hanging and enjoying a pint.

Food was very good but not necessarily outstanding. The restaurant itself is beautiful and impeccably clean. Prices were decent and service was fantastic. Great introduction to Killarney dining.

Visited for lunch on a Friday, ordered a pint of lime and soda, would expect to pay £2 or less in most places, here it was €6.30 which I thought was outrageously expensive for a bar. After this we went into the restaurant and they redeemed themselves. Although the menu was very limited, I chose a goats cheese toastie, not... More

We stayed in the International Hotel in Killarney on our recent CIE Tour of Ireland. Stopped in here after a show one night to have a pint & listen to some Irish music.

The lamb shank was delicious! But the staff was truly delightful. We went in for dinner with our 7 month old son, and immediately worried that the restaurant was a bit too nice and fancy for a baby. But our waiter, Les could not have been more friendly, helpful, and accommodating. He made us feel entirely comfortable, and as if... More
