Killarney's was a a Celtic pub and restaurant owned by Ron and Joy Cagle. It opened on March 17, 2002 (St Patrick's Day) in the former Ruby Tuesday's location in Eastwood Mall, subleasing the space. Although the pub served Guinness on draught and specialized in Irish cuisine, it embraced Celtic traditions from Scotland and other nations as well. Killarney's brought in touring Celtic musicians and groups for live performances, often joined by local band Shillelagh Law.

The pub also operated a London-style red double-decker "Killarney's Party Bus" to bring customers from nearby entertainment districts.

In early 2003 Cagle relocated to the former G. G. in the Park/Forest Park Deli location at 3625 8th Avenue South.
