This pub was recommended to us so we tried it. Typical Irish fare. I had fish & chips which was OK but my wife had a burger which was not that good. Seemed to be a popular place so maybe we were just unlucky.More

The owner was behind the bar looking after the supper crowd. Great spot in the middle of Killarney. We didn't eat here but lots of folks seemed to be enjoying the "pub" type fare.

Food was excellent. Bacon (ham) and cabbage, beef and guinness stew, and I finally got my shepard's pie, which was excellent. Portions were huge and enjoyed by all. Live music in the evenings.
