Lodged in an 1830 Rectory 2 miles outside of Killarney, you will experience warm, generous hospitality and service at a reasonable cost. Everyone is on a first name basis from the moment you are greeted by the energetic and charismatic owners, Geraldine and Michael, and their cheerful, efficient crew. The little pub is always humming with activity and the bar is run mostly on the honor system. (Once they had taught us the proper way to draw a Guinness, we could use our new-found knowledge any hour of the day or night.) The restaurant and its staff cooked and served Michelin two-star quality food (mostly fresh and local) in a relaxed, casual atmosphere. We ate every dinner and breakfast (full Irish) there for five days and never tired of the cooking and never felt the need to repeat a meal.The hotel is conveniently located for all of the best (and many more of the lesser but very good) golf courses in Kerry and surroundings, while also being within easy driving distance to the Dingle and Kerry peninsulas. There are many more good things to say about this gem, but the best I can do is say that no lodging experience in my 45 years of travel has afforded a more enchanting experience.
