One of the best things to open in Killarney in a long time is Miss Courtney’s Tearooms on College Street. It’s a great addition to the town, I wish her the best of luck, and I would highly recommend to all my readers that they check it out.
I’ve just come from an encounter with their cream tea. With a steaming pot, warmed scones and clotted cream, it naturally reminded me of a trip I took to Devon, as would the decor of the shop with its frills and lace.
A good range of teas, china cups and pots, and even silver tongs for the sugar ensures a refined experience. Plates of cakes on the counter tempt, and a pretty little garden in the back completes the experience.
The service was professional, and the prices what would one expect for an upscale place in Killarney.
Miss Courtney also has the beginnings of a blog (here), so we might be seeing the beginning of an Irish tea blogger. Fingers crossed.

Great tip! Thanks.
Mmmmm. Cream tea.
yummy. this is tempting 🙂
Hope you are well. We have a holiday home in Dingle and spend our summers and random weekends there. Just saw your entry there on the tea rooms in Killarney. In case you don’t know there is in fact a tea rooms in Dingle. We discovered this one wet and rainy afternoon, when it was simply too cold for ice cream I’m afraid 🙂
It’s tucked away opposite the church behind Dick Macks Pub on Green St.
It’s called Bee’s Teas and was a simply wonderful experience. You must check it out. I actually spotted an article about in my husband’s Business Munster magazine this week as we were down for a few nights.
She uses only organic ingredients, makes everything herself and has a selction of 22 different teas. We popped in this week but she was just closing up and explained she’s off to Fashion college but will reopen at Christmas.
I really think you would like it. She also has a blog http://beesteas.dingletown.com
Just thought I’d let you know as I know you appreciate wonderful food and like to support locals.
See you soon, we’ll probably be down for the food festival. Sounds fantastic!
Thanks, Nicola! I heard about the place all right, and it’s a terrible indictment of how busy I am in the summer that I didn’t make it in to her! I guess I’ll get another chance at Christmas.
