"Supper and Irish Pub Show"
Reviewed October 2017 – Blaire, Brandon
"After a full day of driving the complete ring of Kerry we dropped into the Jarvey's Rest (after reading a brochure at the Kenmare Tourist Information Centre) for supper and to see some genuine Irish singing and dancing Entertainment. The food was good and the entertainment exceeded our expectations...very very good. We spent two nights in Killarney and we were very happy we were able to fit this into our schedule. We would definitely return on our next visit to Killarney, Ireland."
"Food was Delicious - Bonus was Entertainment"

“We were staying at Muckross Hotel next door so this was very convenient for a evening of food and drinks. The nice addition was that they had a band and two female Celtic dancers for evening entertainment. We even got to join in and learn a few steps…”

"Loved this pub!"

“The pub was just up the road from our hotel, so we gave it a try for dinner. The chicken wings appetizer is fantastic -- highly recommend it! I had the tagliatelle pasta with roasted chicken, mushrooms and bacon. It was a huge dish of tasty food. The roasted chicken and Irish burger also get thumbs up.
We went back a second night for drinks and apps (chicken wings again!!) and to listen to a band play traditional Irish music, with some Springsteen thrown they. They were accompanied by entertaining Irish dancers. The place was packed; it was a fun, lively atmosphere.”
“Solid Irish experience”

"The food was very good, the location was only bit outside of town but worth the short trip. The atmosphere was very authentic with out being crowded. The service was fantastic and attentive...thank you Anna! The icing on the cake was the entertainment. I don't know if it's every night, but the calibre was really unexpected for a restaurant.... The Irish dancers were wonderful, one of them being retired from the River Dance troupe as was as a national champion."
