A great live band enticed us in to this pub on Halloween night. The drinks were reasonable for Killarney but my wine was a bit off, maybe had been opened a while, not sure! The band was fab, great songs and a good laugh 😊More

Murphy's Bar is a great place to eat, with live music at night. The staff was very nice and accommodating. We go there a little before the music started and it was fairly slow, but once the music started the place filled up quickly.

I think so but dont know, most pubs seemed to welcome reservations. They did have a few veggie options and seemed pretty openminded for asking about changes in standard menu.
