Our group had a fun night here enjoying the food, music, dance, and drink. The food was delicious and the musician not only played great but went into great detail as to their instruments and the songs they played.

Having organised a table at the Irish Night via email a week before when we arrived in Ireland, we went on a scenic drive out of Killarney to find Kate's Cottage. There was a trio of musicians, with a number of Irish instruments, and through the evening they gave brief histories of them and a basic how to play them.... More

We had a large group dinner of about 60 people and I have to say the staff did a wonderful job. The food and entertainment were very good.

We stopped here after travelling the Gap of Dunloe. The weather was beautiful so the outside eating area was very busy, It is quite a big bar but no different to any other touristy bar. It has a shop selling all the usual tourist stuff and the food was fine but nothing exciting. They do have music sessions in the... More

Friendly,good food,great local entertainment. Well worth the visit. Sample the local moonshine! Our hotel called and they fit us in close to the music and dancing. Enjoyed a few pints and the lamb shank was divine! If visiting during the day you can take a horse drawn carriage over the pass from here.

This is a little gem of a spot for a sunday lunch. Get there early, particularly in high season, to get in before the many walkers that frequent the place. Well worth the trip out from Killarney!! The half portions for the kids are almost full portions and the food is homely and simply stunning! A great pint of Guinness... More

We were warmly welcomed and given what might have seemed to be a bum seat. However it gave us a full view of the band who were playing later. Everything is set up to make sure you have a good time, but be warned there are coachloads of people here - if you struggled through the Gap of Duloe it... More
