Lakeside Beauty
The Village of Garrykennedy offers lake side beauty with the boats on the harbour marina and quinntessential traditional Irish pubs to experience Irish hospitality at it's best.

The award winning pub, Larkins Pub and Restaurant and refer to Tripadvisor site for great independant reviews also, serves excellent food all day fiiled with irish traditional charm. The pub is also home to excellent irish music sessions at the weekends.
When I think of a perfect irish holiday I think of this house in this location with the opportunity to experience fine Irish hospitality and local talented musicians in the village pub.
