Where to Eat, Drink, Shop

There are two bars within a mile of Abbey View.  Cable O'Learys, which opens its restaurant during the summer months, lies just fifteen leisurely minutes walk away, on a low cliff overlooking the Bay, whilst Rosie's, in the little village of Dungeagan, is a further ten minutes walk along the same road.

There is a small shop just over five minutes walk away and a shop/post office with public internet facility opposite Cable's.  A third shop, Browne's, is located outside Dungeagan. Whatever items you need, the essential purchase is a bar of "Rum and Butter" chocolate.

Within 15 minutes drive you can reach Waterville to the east and Cahirciveen, to the north, both of which offer a good range of bars and restaurants, and Cahirciveen is a great town for shopping.

Whilst in Waterville, be sure to take in the Butler's Arms, the hotel/bar/ restaurant where Charlie Chaplin brought his family for many a summer vacation. Charlie's association with this establishment is commemorated via a statue situated opposite the hotel.

In addition to Cahirciveen and Waterville, there are many other fine places to eat out.
The Moorings in Portmagee sits right there on the quayside, whilst O'Neills at Renard Point outside Cahirciveen is also extremely popular. Similar gems can be found heading in the opposite direction past Waterville on the truly spectactularly route to Caherdaniel, Sneem, Parknasilla and Kenmare.
