The Heart Of The Dingle Peninsula On Ireland′s Atlantic Coast.
Delicious Food. Delightful Accommodation

As 2021 draws to a close, it is time to finally close the door on Gorman’s Clifftop House. What a great journey it was. Starting as a small café way back in 1980, providing us with the opportunity of a livelihood, to rear our family in this special place. There was so much emigration at the time, and we were blessed with this opportunity.

Great memories of all the people that travelled with us along the way. Our family, our neighbours, guests that came from all over the world, colleagues from so many walks of life. All the people that became part of our team.

Memories of all the various favourite dishes down through the years. The baking, the cooking, the serving and of course most important – the chatting.
Memories of stories told. Lives lived. The reason for visits – sometimes holidays – sometime other reasons. The Japanese, husband and wife and sister who had lost a son each in tragic circumstances. They hoped this Celtic land and the sea would help them rebirth and restart their lives.

Memories of celebrations. Family get togethers, friends catch up, birthdays, anniversaries, making new friends. Our own family celebrations. Memories of the songs, the music, and the craic.

Memories of the great people and colleagues in the industry. Memories of the support of travel writers and journalists and marketing groups. I would love to name you all, but the list is too long.

Thank you all for the great journey. To follow my new journey follow me on Granny Kelly’s Kitchen Facebook and Instagram. If you would like to contact me you can do so to SheelaghSmyth@outlook.com

We wish the new owners, artist Éadaoin Glynn and her family, every good wish with this beautiful place. They will take it on a different journey but a very exciting one. Éadaoin is very excited to set up a studio and find inspiration in this beautiful corner of Ireland. You can see her work on www.eadaoinglynn.com and on Instagram

Nollaig mhór mhaith díbh go léir – A very happy Christmas
