The Devils Punchbowl Bar


Killarney's most scenic Lakeside Bar

The Devil’s Punch Bowl Bar takes its name from the stunning glacial lake on Mangerton Mountain set within Killarney National Park, a 25,000-acre oasis adjacent to The Lake Hotel and visible from the bar, restaurant, lounges.

This bright and relaxing bar offers superb views of the lakes and mountains beyond and also is a display area for some of the hotel's memorabilia. The bar is often busy for morning coffee and scones and refreshments, The Lake Hotel’s classic Afternoon Tea in the afternoon and casual tasty bar food throughout the early evening with locals, guests and passing tourists. Combined with our friendly and helpful staff, guests come back again and again.
