The Climbers Inn
The Climbers Inn, Glencar is steeped in history and is one of the oldest walking and climbing establishments in the whole of Ireland. It has been providing a friendly welcome to weary walkers and climbers since 1879 and is located in a truly sensational backdrop, a glorious woodland setting and still retains much of its old world charm which help to create a warm welcoming atmosphere. With regular live music and an ever changing clientele, the atmosphere is laid back – often lively, and always friendly. You’ll often find the Bar full of hill-walkers, anglers, kayakers, climbers and locals alike, chatting about their day just passed, and enthusiastically planning their next adventure.
Glencar, Gleann Chàrthaigh, Glen of the River Caragh, is just a short hop from the bustling historic town of Killorglin. It is an oasis of dramatic and awe-inspiring natural beauty, with lakes, rivers, rugged mountains, forests and wild moor & bog-lands. Relax and enjoy the leisurely pace of life that is rural Ireland at its most satisfyingly scenic best.
