Good food and atmoshere

We visit this area frequently and always head to Kate Kearney's for a meal and to soak up the typically Irish atmosphere. The menu has a good range of dishes to suit all tastes. They also do children's and half portions for those with smaller appetites. We visited twice this visit, once for dinner... read more

Kate's was recommended by our B&B owner for the food and music, and we enjoyed both. They have both home cooking and some upscale fish dishes. Music started at 8:45 local time and happens 7 nights a week. Typical dinner was about 12 euros.

This is a required historic stop should you be near the Gap of Dunloe. It had a nice atmosphere, good drinks and a friendly staff-snd a nice fire to warm up cold feet.

What a cute place! We came for dinner and timed it perfectly to hear an Irish band playing while we ate. The staff were very quick and attentive. I had pesto crusted cod and my husband had ham and cabbage. Both our meals were delicious. We ordered the fried Brie each for an appetizer= SOOOO GOOD. I highly recommend it.... More

We arrived at the Gap of Dunloe on a rainy Saturday morning and felt like some lunch at Kate Kerney's. It was already noon as we entered and walked around and although staff were milling about, no one paid any attention to us. Eventually, my husband asked if lunch was available and before he could say anything else, he was... More

This place manages to be a friendly pub with good wholesome food in a beatiful location. Although it attracts lots of tourists it is also a pub which seems to be popular with people who live in the area. The service was friendly, the menu had something for everyone and my meal (roast lamb) was ggreat. Not in any way... More

Fabulous food, drink & staff in a beautiful location! There was also two excellent bands playing which made the atmosphere even better. Will definitely be returning when back in Killarney.

Stopped at Kate's yesterday - the valley was basking in glorious sunshine and there were big crowds there. The staff were busy but as courteous and helpful as always! The menu provides very staple fare - no fancy haute cuisine at Kate's but everything on the menu is freshly cooked - I can highly recommend their Brie salad as a... More
