Dining Out

There are a number of excellent restaurants in the area including two within easy walking distance and these are some of our favourites:

Dunloe Hotel and Gardens

Dunloe Hotel

Subject of a 20 million euro refurbishment the Dunloe re opened in April 2018 and now features a restaurant with spectacular views of the Gap. Even if you do not dine there it is worth a visit for the beautiful gardens and the lobby with its Harry Potteresque multi storey library.

Europe Hotel

Not the least of its attractions are an excellent view of the lake with outside seating in fine weather.
