You'll instantly get a good vibe to this place once you step through the door. First impression is that this is a old world pub where a few old codgers would while away the hours supping pints. But it's more than that, much more. It...More

We had a fabulous meal. The manager Catherine was a treat and her recommendations were spot on. To be honest Catherine and the tavern made our visit to Lisdoonvarna.

Kieran’s Kitchen Restraunt is a treat to dine in, the menu is small but serves fresh delicious food and reasonably priced. The home brewed lager and stout are tasty too. Had a great evening there listening to some traditional music.

I can only imagine when the live music is going on here that it must be one fun evening! We came for lunch and really enjoyed the food and Burren beer

Sorry I cannot answer the question. I dined only in the establishment, and did not know that it was residential.

Description
PUB OPEN ALL YEAR ROUND 10AM TILL LATE FOOD SERVED FROM MARCH UNTIL NOVEMBER 12-4 6-9 EVERYDAY Last orders 8.45 In spring 2011, Peter Curtin embarked on a new endeavour: He set up the Burren Brewery in the Roadside Tavern in Lisdoonvarna. The building, which in 1865 started off as a pub, then was expanded into a bakery, now also harbours a micro-brewery under its roof. At the same time it is an eatery and a renowned music venue for traditional and contemporary music. Peter realised very quickly how complicated and time-consuming it was to brew his own beer - it really is a labour of love. He enrolled the help of a Master Brewer, and the result can now be tasted in the Roadside Tavern: The Burren Gold is a delicious, characterful lager. The mainstream lagers available every-where just cannot compete with this one!The Burren Red with its great red colour is a spicy, slightly sweet ale which even features a hint of smoke. It seems to become the favourite among the punters at the Roadside! The Burren Black is a stout that does not have to fear the competition of a certain other black stuff. It is smooth and full-bodied, with a creamy crown of froth on top - and definitely alive inside! A heavenly drink.
