Top 5 Places to Grab a Pint in Killarney

November 21, 2013

Killarney is one of those cities you don’t soon forget. It’s the type of friendly, picturesque town that stands out when you’re traveling and experiencing adventures abroad. Surrounded by a beautiful landscape and filled with wonderful people and great pubs, Killarney is a must when playing golf in Southwest Ireland. It’s a great place to grab a pint of Guinness or Murphy’s, which ever you prefer.

The next time you’re in Killarney be sure to check out these top 5 pubs:

Charlie Foleys — With a friendly atmosphere, live music and cold beer, Charlie Foleys is a difficult place to leave during a night out on the town. However, if you have an early morning tee time at Tralee GC the next morning, we highly suggest that limit yourself to just a few pints of Guinness. (click here for website)

Buckley’s Bar — You’ll probably find more locals than tourists at Buckley’s Bar. The oak paneled walls and turf fire enhance the atmosphere of this traditional Irish pub. If you’re looking for good “craic”, (the gaelic word for fun and good cheer, not drugs), you’ll find it at Buckley’s. (click here for website)

Laurel’s Pub – This classic pub has live music and Irish dancing during the season. It’s the perfect place to sit back relax and savor a pint of Murphy’s while having a nice conversation with your travel partners. There’s a brick fireplace in the middle of the restaurant, which adds to the warm atmosphere of this traditional pub. (click here for website)

The Danny Mann — This is one of those pubs that has “vintage” art all over the walls that can only be acceptable in a traditional Irish pub. The Danny Mann has lots of character with its big copper fireplace, stone walls, solid hunting tables, old telephone boxes, beamed ceilings and convivial atmosphere.

The Plaza Hotel Bar Café du Parc – This is one of the hippest spots to hangout in Killarney. The Café du Parc is the perfect place to sip on a late night cocktail. Fitted with five bars over four levels, this lounge is packed with locals and tourists alike. If you are looking for something a little less traditional this might be your place.
