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.

      I first visited The Laurels in 1990. It was my favorite place in Killarney then. I was thrilled they were still there 29 yrs later. Although the front was painted, once I walked inside, I was taken back to the greatness I remembered. I had...More

  •   Called in for lunch with some friends. The place was packed, but they rearranged tables so we could eat together. Good choice on menu and everyone enjoyed what they had. The staff were friendly and really helpful. Would recommend this place for lunch.

      We have got fed up with being served saw dust masquerading as fish cakes. The ones here are fantastic- made with real fish. I had a very good curry! Nice staff; busy bar full of regulars who come to eat. Highly recommended.
