Bar, Restaurant, Entertainment venue, souvenir shops, Pub grub and much more. Our multi award winning banquet style themed "Irish Night" runs from March through to October, a must if your visiting. In the high season you can expect the show to run at least 6 nights a week. We're also situated close to many walking trails in the world famous Gap of Dunloe. There's Jaunting cars and horse riding within a minutes walk and at least 5 golf course within a 10 mile radius. We also cater for weddings and after wedding parties. Live music and BBQs are never too far away either during the summer

Charming cottage!

This was a must see--historically interesting and conveniently located near the Gap of Dunloe entrance. Architecture is quaint, food simple, convenience excellent.

Lovely experience here. There's a little gift shop inside which sells allsorts. It's so Irish it's great amongst the scenary aswell. We came in off season so I'd say it'd be worth a visit during peak.

Nothing tastes better than a cup of tea after walking the Gap of Dunloe. Great place to rest and take in the view.

Visited Kate Kearneys after a bracing trip on pony and trap up the Gap of Dunloe. I enjoyed a delicious liqueur coffee sat by the fire, a lovely relaxed atmosphere.
