The final bar that we visited on our whistle stop tour of Killarneys pubs was Dunloe Lodge situated on Plunkett street. We just arrived in after the live music was finished. I was disappointed as i heard a few people commenting on how good the music was. Dunloe Lodge is quite a small bar. When we went in it was very busy and was practically full to the rafters. I ordered a pint of Guinness and glass of Budweiser. To be honest it was my favourite pub of the night. It just seemed to have a good atmosphere and a bit of craic. The pint of Guinness was by far the best i got down in Killarney. It went down very well indeed.
Dunloe Lodge was my favourite pub but their toilets were the worst of the night. They are small and the one cubicle available was in an awful mess. The toilet seat was hanging off. I am very particular about toilets as you will know from some of the reviews. The toilet here hasn’t clouded my judgement of the place thankfully. I would head back to this pub if i was in Killarney again. If you are a tourist looking for a Irish bar with no friils but plenty character then check out this pub.
Toilet rating: poor 3/10
Pint rating: 8.5/10
Overall rating: 8/10
Final comment: Dunloe Lodge is a good traditional bar. It may suit some people, others may not like it but why not check it out.
