I was in Kate Kearneys last week with a group of Americans on tour. They were very impressed with the food, music and service in this unique restaurant. A quick walk, up and back, to the first lake on the Gap of Dunloe road to work up an appetite and then in for some excellent food. The steak sandwich and... More

Audience was very worldly which added... More

Rustic cottage atmosphere that caters to couples, families and to large groups. Clean restaurant, large portions and friendly staff. We were entertained by local musicians and dancers playing mostly traditional Irish jogs, reels and ballads. Very nice! Went on a Tuesday evening and restaurant was quite full but we did not have to wait too long for a table for... More

We ate here with a group of 14 people. They were very accommodating since we had 6 children with us. They also catered to the members of our group with food allergies. Very good food. The best dishes of our group were the stuffed chicken and the Banoffee pie.

Very welcoming place to eat. Good food and live music each night we went in. They are happy for you to make a starter into a main course and I can recommend the brie! Has a shop attached which is open late into the evening. Nice outside seating area.
