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 over 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.

  • star rating  Don’t bother with the beef nacho's - mediocre for €13.95 !! - very evident the sour cream was squeezed out of a bottle - looked and tasted similar to mayonnaise 😳
