We stop for a late lunch at 330 today, after driving through the Gap of Dunloe. It was very busy. The food was very tasty and reasonably priced

The service, ambiance, and food were quite good. It was also nice to see other people socialize. Their home-brewed Guinness was incredible. I have had hundreds of types of beers in tens of countries, and none rise to the level of this one.

If you are looking for top quality food with a real Irish feel you should try Kate's, it's located at the start of the gap of Dunloe and is a restaurant bar and shop steeped in history, we loved it and still love it.
