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.

      Visited recently with my wife for a Saturday lunch. Was quite bust but the very friendly waitress found us a table after a few minutes waiting at the bar. Had a most delicious lunch and would recommend the seafood chowder and a door-stop sandwich.
