We offer small group catering experiences at the spectacular boutique, self-catering venue 'The Killary Lodge'.

Located less than a 1 Km away from the food truck, this lodge is settled in amongst the trees and the shoreline and is Connemara's newest luxury,  self-catering lodge.  

The Misunderstood Heron is indeed a treat to seek out along the Wild Atlantic Way.
