Moriarty’s Gift Shop & Heather Restaurant

Max Meeting Room Capacity (Pax)

For half a century the Moriarty family have been welcoming tourists to ‘Moriarty’s’, one of the finest gift stores in Ireland. Located at the foothills of the McGillycuddy Reeks, just 10 minutes drive from Killarney town centre. A new edition to our offering at ‘The Gap’ is Heather, an artisan restaurant set on the River Loe with stunning views of the iconic Gap of Dunloe. Heather Restaurant is a bright and spacious table service restaurant which opens onto 5 acres of kitchen gardens and ornamental landscaping.

Our vision is to produce fresh, simply prepared, seasonal food. As well as produce from our own garden and poly tunnels, we take advantage of the wealth of local artisan food producers, organic farmers and wild Atlantic seafood that the South West of Ireland has to offer. Heather is set on 5 acres of multi-level gardens with breath-taking views of the McGillycuddy Reeks. Maximum capacity indoors is 80 pax, outdoors 120 pax.


During private events, our gift store can be opened exclusively to your guests, assisted by our long serving staff who are well known for their Irish hospitality and outstanding levels of customer care and service. 


Our multi-level gardens are open for guests to wander through with the Gap of Dunloe as a backdrop. Here they will be able to learn about the wonderful flora and fauna of the area as well as viewing our kitchen garden. This will provide the unique opportunity to learn and discover how some of the produce for their banquet is grown & harvested.


A harpist (or similar) can be arranged to play traditional Irish tunes while the guests are enjoying the displays in the shop & the garden – musicians – jigs, reels & hornpipes at their best – and plenty of room for dancing!
