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.

How a pot of tea leaves the skinny lattes cold !

The tradition of afternoon tea is one to be enjoyed at any time of the day,
In Killarney Miss Courtney's Tearooms was set up by Sandra Dunlea in a premises which has been in the female family line for four generations. It is awash with gorgeous china tea sets, teapots, and traditional tiered stands, glistening under pretty chandeliers. Sandra's grandfather was big into photography so there is a huge collection of vintage black and white photos of family and friends at parties and events.
