Tim O’shea and band were playing at the front of the pub and they were great. Good atmosphere, you could get a seat and hear yourself talk, although it is a central and clearly popular pub. Friendly staff and clientele

Courtneys is a traditional pub in Killarney. There is a good selection of beers. The music on nights it is traditional Irish music is fantastic. Go enjoy a few pints, good music and friendly patrons.

This is a Nice Old Irish Pub and they pour a good Guinness. The Crowd was quite Friendly, all tourists that we talked to. The Staff was not particularly Friendly, fair service. This is an ok place, but there are better pubs in the Neighborhood.
