My wife and I had dinner here tonight and had a great experience. I had the lamb roast and she had the lamb shank. Both were cooked wonderfully and served in good portion. To finish off we shared the Bailey's cheesecake and even with the dinner being so good, the dessert may have been the best part! Nothing bad to... More

All the food was delicious but our favorite was their Irish Brown Bread and for dessert - Sticky Toffee Pudding (be sure to ask for ice cream). Great service too - we ate their twice!

Visited yesterday with my 2 year old. Ordered baby bowl for my son & I got the lamb. Lamb was cooked lovely but the sauce was awful, I expected a lamb gravy but it seemed to be a chasseur sauce which I personally did not like. The baby bowl had lovely potato & veg but again this awful sauce was... More

Hit on Hannigan's by chance and really enjoyed the evening. Can highly recommend the seafood pancake (asked for the hollandaise on the side..good call as it's quite a rich dish). It was very filling and couldn't manage desert, but friends ordered the tiramisu and were very impressed with it. The staff were very pleasant and attentive...only tiny complaint was that... More

We busted here on a recent killarney trip and had lunch. It's possible it was the best pub lunch I've ever had. Lovely open fire and plenty of choice in whiskey and food we ended up staying for dinner and until closing. Great pub all round and very friendly staff

TripAdvisor and my B&B host recommended Hannigan's to me for dinner, so off I went. And boy were they both right. Taking advice from past reviews here, I ate the Lamb Shank and also had their soup of the day - cream of vegetable. Both were so delicious. The lamb shank is really as good as everyone says it is....
