Herlihy’s, Half Way House
At Herlihy’s, there is an opportunity to play “mine host” in your own pub. Yes! You will live quite literally in the pub. Herlihy’s Bar ceased trading as a licensed premises in 2017. Since then the bar and ancillary areas have been re-commissioned into wheelchair friendly self-catering accommodation. The bar counter is now home to a bespoke fitted kitchen, featuring all “mod cons”, the bar back remains in situ and the bar floor area has been transformed into living/dining space complete with up-cycled bar furniture and a sofa bed. In contrast to the traditional bar ambience, the remainder of the unit is ultramodern and encompasses a double bedroom, bathroom, complete with wet area and utility room. A private wheelchair accessible entrance leads into a hallway and a patio-door gives direct access from the bedroom to a beautiful garden (where one can barbecue weather permitting!), terrace and car park.
There is a lovely atmospheric ambience to the accommodation, making it perfect as a cosy welcoming venue for a totally relaxing break. It is the perfect location for a Kerry holiday just 1.5 km from Kerry Airport and 15 km from Killarney town centre. The Dingle Peninsula, Ring of Kerry, Wild Atlantic and Kerry Ways are all within easy driving distance. For those who do not wish to drive there is an excellent bus/train service to Killarney and beyond. Plus a first rate taxi service. Being in the village, there is a supermarket, pharmacy, post office, takeaway and bar/restaurant on the doorstep.
Marie the owner (a professional archaeologist), whose family have owned the property since 1912 continues to live in the building. Therefore, she will be on hand to advise on where to go, what to see and what to do whilst visitors are in Kerry.
For those seeking a holiday destination with a difference, Herlihy’s provides an exceptional opportunity to holiday in an historical bar, where a family legacy is kept alive in a unique way.
