DiscoverOur Story

Ultimate dining experience like no other
The Laurels is a wonderful traditional Killarney pub which has been run by the O’Leary family for almost a century. And little has changed in that time. Tiled floors and beamed ceilings, lots of alcoves and dimly lit corners, friendly and attentive staff, all contribute to the charm of The Laurels.

      Real authentic Irish pub with a great atmosphere and staff. We had Lamb Shank and a Steak absolutely perfect with great sides. Guinness was creamy and cold. The owner is a lovely lady with a great business and it is easy to see why.
