We arrived about 8 PM and stayed until about 10 PM. There was a live band that worked the room/crowd well. We had the leg of lamb. It was as good as any other I’ve tried.

If you are determined to dine at Kate Kearney's Cottage, don't show up before noon. Which makes you very hungry if you've hiked the Gap of Dunloe that morning and thought the restaurant would be open. I think it was serving alcohol (at the bar)...More

We enjoyed it so much we went back the next night. Great food choices and great music for a taste of Ireland. Enjoyed the Guinness and gin drinks.

This place was recommended to us by our Air BNB hosts in Kilorglin; we were not disappointed. Food and drink was great; Irish much and dancing was provided that night and we also drove the Gap before we had dinner.
