CIE/Long’s Travel NJ group dinner at Kate’s was as fantastic as our last visit in 2014. Friendly servers, great food and wonderful traditional Irish music and dance. We highly recommend Kate Kearney’s Cottage.

As part of a tour group, we all visited Kate Kearney's Cottage for our dinner/drinks and entertainment. I loved the group so much that I purchased a CD at the evening's end. A couple of young dancers were also featured.
