This was a quaint Irish pub that had musical performers most nights. However they were very strict about last orders reaching the kitchen by 9 15pm. It had been a beautiful day and we had been playing golf so we only just made this curfew.

The seafood chowder was fantastic. No potatoes. The gluten free options were outstanding. I enjoyed the duck. Great value dinner.

In conversation with a friend travelling to Ireland next month I realized I Completely Forgot, in a Nov. 2015 review of the International, to mention Hannigan's topnotch simply fabulous seafood chowder! The recipe is closely guarded, alas; and try as we might, we cannot come close. Enjoy the Best!

We went along to the Killarney races and afterwards decided to go for a late lunch in Hannigan's. We were sat in the Café area right next to windows and the kids were entertained with the horses/carriages across the street. The service was excellent despite being extremely busy. The food was lovely, well presented and piping hot plus there was... More

Liked being in a slightly more formal setting for a change. The host and waitress could not have been nicer....went out of their way to help use a problem we were having with our car. We all enjoyed our food very much (I had seafood crepe which was very nice); husband v happy with his lamb roast. A very nice... More

Ate there twice while we were in Killarney. Food was good but nothing special or at least not what we had.

After being a tad disappointed with our dinner our first night in Killarney, we opted for Hannigan's based on TripAdvisor reviews. We wanted a place with fairly traditional Irish fare. There was a minor glitch when we first arrived in that our reservation for four seemed to have been misplaced, which I fault miscommunication between the hotel and restaurant staff.... More

5 of us wanted to sit for coffee & chat. As we had eaten in our hotels we only wanted coffee. Staff were very accommodating & quickly found us a corner table. Service was quick & we were allowed to linger even though it was busy lunchtime. Would revisit for lunch

Dined here one evening during a 3-day stay in Killarney. Would have dined the other evenings, except one warns to try other places. The roads of the day, beef, was absolutely superb. Fabulous taste from the meat, lovely sauce and veg. One person had roast stuffed duck, and he said it was the tastiest GED eaten In a long time.,... More
