Bon Acceuil a le Climbers' Inn



In 1879, my Grand-parents built a forge and trading post where the Climbers' Inn stands today - Quietly situated in a glorious woodland setting in the centre of this spectacular glen. Ideally suited for those of us who wish to get away from it all. My mother and farther Jack Walsh turned it into the famous walking and climbing centre affectionately known today as "Jacks Place". We are recognised as the oldest walking and climbing establishment in Ireland. World famous mountaineers have limped though these doors after a great day on the "Reeks". Jack is around to greet old friends and share a few memories, as well as lend a hand to the new walker or climber. We provide excellent en suite rooms with Jet showers to rejuvenate tired bodies and a drying room for wet clothes a& kit. Evenings are spent in the restful ambience of the Inn where walker, cyclist and climber alike get together to swop tales of their days adventures over a supper of Wild Salmon, Sea Trout, Fish Game Soup, Venison, Highland Lamb or Vegetarian dishes. The Inn prides itself on its home cooking. (Egon Ronay good food guide). Nights of live Irish music, where locals and guests join together in in laughter and song, with a truely relaxed atmosphere. So... whether you are a walker, climber, cyclist, fisherman or simply touring by car - you will always be made welcome at The Climbers Inn.

The Inn is a hive of activity for cyclists,walkers and climbers alike.


We have nights of live Irish music, where locals and guests can join in the laughter with a truly relaxed atmosphere. So whether you're a mountaineer, a walker on the Kerry Way, fishing or simple touring by car, you'll find the best pint of Guinness and the warmest welcome in Ireland at the Climbers' Inn.
