Any trip to Count Kerry needs to include Kate Kearney's Cottage as well as the Gap of Dunloe. Beautiful location, wonderful scenery and very very people. Highly recommend it.

Staff excellent and helpful. After a long walk it was the best scone and tea we had. Perfect for a pint in the sunshine. Great value for money.

Such a friendly restaurant with great seating at the foot of the mountains. Unbelievable scenery and the staff are so accommodating. My father got bangers and mash and he said it was so traditional and amazing. Not enough Irish restaurants serve bangers and mash like years ago!. A real turn back in time 😁 picture shows a beautiful main course... More

This was a highlight of the tour that I was on. The night and food was really good. The trio that were playing that night were outstanding, and really involved the audience. We had a great night and enjoyed entertainment. The dinner was typical for tour group fare.

Ideal place to start or finish your visit of Gap of Dunloe. Plenty of room inside or out. The service was good and the food reasonable priced. Can recommend the roast lamb which was on the specials board - plenty of lamb and vegetables.

Thank Crowley99
