Great Eats and Drinks in Killarney, Ireland!
When we first arrived in Killarney we already had dinner in Kinsale so we were not looking for dinner options. But we decided to take a quick stroll around town before heading to Ross Castle. We stumbled upon Celtic Whiskey Bar and Larder. We stuck our head in- they were playing Cars, had shelves full of whiskeys and was serving plates of charcuterie, it was like it was calling our names we knew we had to go back.
We went back a few days later, after a long day driving about the Dingle Peninsula this was the perfect place to sit back and relax.
This place was very chill. Don’t let the name fool you, they also offer a large variety of gin cocktails. And not only did they serve spirits from around the world they had a craft beer, cider and wine selection as well. The great thing about this place was that you didn’t have to stick to trying to choose one type of whiskey. They offered a variety of flights as well. And even better a wide variety of price levels to fit your choosing. The flights cost anywhere from 14 euros to 60 euros.
Having dinner in Dingle already we decided to go for a charcuterie board and a flight of whiskey. My husband order the “Irish Favorites” flight and it was thoroughly enjoyed. We still talk about how perfect this place was for us. All our favorite eats and drinks!
As we sat down to plan out our trip to Ireland we knew we wanted to get a chance to see the sight everyone thinks of in Ireland, the Cliffs of Moher. We usually try our best to stay away, or not spend a lot of time at major tourist sights, so we were not sure how authentic of an experience we would get in Doolin. Heading into Doolin, the closet town to the Cliffs of Moher we thought we would be staying in a large tourist trap. But my goodness the food and drinks were sooo good. I am not sure if this was Ireland’s version of a tourist area but we were definitely loving our meals and drinks around town. Here are a few places that we recommend.
Killarney Brewing Company
We always love to find the best eats and drinks in the towns we travel to. Before arriving I thought for sure that Ireland would mostly serve major Irish labels in their local bars. After a little research we found out we were very wrong. Most towns had at least one local brewery. One of our favorite was in Killarney, Ireland named Killarney Brewing Company.
During our recent trip to Ireland we decided to take on the task of completing the Ring of Kerry in one day. There are so many stops and sights to take in so we had to narrow it down to our must see views. I love using Google My Maps to help keep track of what locations peak our interest and then plan out a course and time frame from there. When planning out your own trip I would make sure you leave time for some stops you might not expect. Ireland is full of places you want to pull off the side of the road and admire the country’s beauty.
We were lucky enough to catch a red eye flight to Dublin from Cincinnati. When we arrived into Dublin’s airport is was 9:00am, leaving us a full day to explore. Despite some lack of sleep we managed to enjoy a lot of Dublin within the first day. Here is our 48 hours in Dublin schedule.
