While away in Co Cork for a weekend we made our way to Top Of Coom Ireland's Highest Pub Creedons, with the hope it would be open and lucky for us it was.
We were greeted and served by a lady named Eileen, who was pottering away cleaning, and a wonderful job she does too, the place is spotless clean and there was fresh Lilly's in the ladies bathroom which is a lovely touch.
A lovely turf fire was burning and it was so cosy to sit beside, it was a bitterly cold day outside so the fire was very welcome.
I'd definitely recommend a visit to Ireland's Highest Pub if you're in the area, it's not hard to find, but take note it opens in the late afternoon and doesn't serve food.

I'll definitely be back again in the future.

A Beautiful part of county Kerry. We visited Ireland's Highest pub while on our holidays recently. Great pint of Guinness and local stout Lon Dubh. Beautiful flowers in the toilets. Very clean. Would highly recommend!

Come upon the Top of Coom on a day out with friends. It was a Sunday and there was a session on, we have instruments and they allowed us to join in. The locals were amazing and the pint was excellent Definitely will be back!

Just a short, scenic drive from Macroom up the hills of the cork / Kerry border. A warm fire and friendly host Eileen greeted us as we entered into the newly refurbished pub. The Guinness was lovely, matching the beauty of the scenery of the area. The pub is very comfortable, lots of room and complete with a pool table and dart board. We can't wait until our next visit to the Top of Coom.
