Kate Kearney’s Cottage is a 150 year old family run establishment nestled at the entrance to the world famous Gap of Dunloe. There is a great history behind the real Kate Kearney and the legend has captured the imagination of people far and wide down through the years. The Bar and Craft Shops are open 7 days a week from 10am each day. We serve bar food daily from 12noon until 8pm. At Kate’s, you will enjoy the tradition of hospitality made famous by the legendary Kate herself.
Kate Kearney’s Cottage is open for Sunday lunches and group bookings. Every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday night during the season we play host to an “Irish Night” featuring local traditional musicians and dancers. Perhaps the most authentic night of its kind in the area, our guests can also partake in old-time and Irish set dancing. Although a tourist ‘hot spot,’ the quality of the food and service has made Kate’s hugely popular with the locals also.
Sample Dish: Check out the braised lamb shank – delicious!
Open: All year, 7 days 10am – 8pm
