Nestled at the entrance to the world famous Gap of Dunloe lies Kate Kearney's Cottage, a 150 year old family-run establishment. At "Kate's" you will enjoy the tradition of hospitality made famous by the legendary Kate herself.

After a day's sightseeing, why not stop in for a taste of Kate Kearney's famous pub grub, washed down with the finest pint in the Kingdom! Relax in the newly refurbished lounge bar with its welcoming fire, and enjoy the atmosphere which attracts both locals and visitors alike. Every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday night during the season the cottage is 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.

Kate was a well known beauty in Ireland in the years before the Great Famine (1845-1849). The legend of Kate has captured the imagination of people far and wide down through the years. It was at this síbín that Kate distilled her famous poitín, "Kate Kearney's Mountain Dew", which was "very fierce and wild, requiring not less than seven times its own quantity of water to tame and subdue it." It was of course illicit. However, Kate flouted the law and invited the weary traveller to partake of her hospitality.
