Miss Margaret Courtney, my great-aunt originally opened her business here in 1909 and it has been run by four generations of ladies in my family. I reopened in summer 2008 as Miss Courtney's Tearooms.

We are an independent tearooms specializing in afternoon tea fare, light lunches and breakfasts. We endeavour to capture the feeling of nostalgia associated with 'taking tea'. Expect old fashioned tablecloths, antique chinaware and glistening chandeliers........ ....take some time to 'take some tea' with us.

A message that made our day!

Miss Courtney's tea rooms will be part of my memories for many years! My husband and I visited Killarney last weekend to celebrate our silver wedding. We came to the tea rooms twice during our 3 day stay! We really enjoyed both the excellent cream tea (especially the warm scones!) and the lovely relaxing atmosphere. It was like stepping back in time, I was reminded of tea at my Granma's house when I was a little girl. What a pity we have lost the art of taking afternoon tea, thank you for reviving it!Hope to visit you again sometime.

Best wishes for the future
