Beautiful b&b with a great breakfast, close to the Gap of Dunloe, about 15 minutes to the town of Killarney. Lots to do nearby. Kate's Kearnys cottage had traditional Irish music and good food.

Tim was a great host, very accommodating! He referred us to Kate Kearney’s Cottage for a delicious meal with local entertainment. Our room was adequate. Although, it was tiny.
