McMahon’s Cafe Bar one of Kingscourt’s favoured places to have breakfast, lunch, dinner or just to sip some coffee with friends. The Cafe Bar is fairly big and has got an excellent ambience thanks to our surround sound system playing the best of today’s or yesterday’s music ranging from Michael Buble to Bruce Springsteen.  The decor has a mixed decor of traditional wood complimented with new modern textiles.  Superb lighting, LCD large TV screens and surround music sound systems compliment the bar.


Our food selection ranges from paninis to burgers, steaks to sweet cakes.  We also have a range of coffees and tea for those looking for an afternoon break. Don’t worry, we still serve the odd pint of Guinness!A pub menu is available daily from 12noon to 9pm. Choose from a selection of soups, sandwiches, salads, burgers or tempt yourself with one of our delicious home made desserts. Daily specials are available.

The Dun A Ri House Hotel is the proud recipient of numerous Dining pub of the year awards. As a result of a dining pub revolution, an exciting new award was launched in 2000 in association with the Irish Pub Guide, which recognises the very best performers with the emphasis on pubs whose high standards, quality food, atmosphere and service make them a cut above the rest and well worth visiting.

The Dining Pub Awards are limited to the top 5% in each region. Some dining pubs have been selected two years in a row, which shows a consistency in reaching a certain standard and keeping that standard up. Dun A Ri House Hotel is the proud recipient of 5 Dining Pub of the Year Awards!

The bar is a non-smoking area (to comply with the Irish Government Smoking ban).
