A Smugglers Tale 


Sitting on the edge of the Kerry coastline along 2km of beautiful sandy beaches sits The Smugglers Inn.

The Smugglers Inn was originally a 200 year old restored farmhouse, which was most recently renovated Spring 2021. These beautiful renovations were completed working alongside the illustrious Brennan Brothers and their RTE show “At Your Service”.

Our contemporary rooms, gourmet restuarant, and unique dome dining experience offers guests an intimate, cosy and relaxed setting in which to enjoy the spectacular 360° views of the Atlantic Ocean and the breath taking rugged Kerry Landscape. Not to mention being a stones throw from the world renowned Waterville Golf Links.
