About Us

About Us

A tale of 2 friends, Denis from Bandon and Ronan from Dublin- Upon completion of their studies, Denis moved to Killarney to work, and Ronan split his time between Killarney in the winter, and the summer season here in Tipperary at Ballinacourty. Fast friends after meeting working in Killarney, years later, they decided to go into business together, and started work on the conversion of the old wine bar and small restaurant in the winter of 2000. Doors opened on Easter Weekend 2001. During this time, Ronan & Denis met and subsequently married 2 sisters and now have 2 great kids each. Ronan married to Mary who runs the B&B and Denis to Patricia, Restaurant Manager and generally a lifesaver in all areas, from day one- many moons ago. Thankfully the girls came from a big family, and we have been very lucky to have had each member work wonderfully here at one time or another, along with a long list of past-staff who we always love to see, and enjoy keeping in touch with. We believe strongly that our staff are our number one asset, you can be assured that you will be served in a friendly, efficient and courteous manner. It is thanks to them that we have received the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence and a large regular customer base built up over the years. Our regulars will know Martina, Restaurant Floor Manager very well, here for over 10 years- she is a most pleasant and friendly young lady, and we are so lucky to have such a loyal and hard-working person like her on our team. Backed up by a fantastic team of part-time front of house and kitchen staff, Shirley, Kieran, Catherine, Maeve, Aoife, Faustina & Katie, and the McCarthy sisters. We are now in our 16th year of operations.
