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.

      It was really busy at lunch but that gave us time for a glass of Guinness. We all ordered the Toasted special. I had it last time and it’s still a good lunch. Cheese, onion and tomato on toasted bread. Yummy! Light and tasty.
