The Smugglers Inn is a Failte Ireland registered Inn. The original building was a 180 year old farmhouse which was restored by the Hunt family in 1980. Since then The Smugglers Inn has become renowned world wide for its warm welcome and superb restaurant. Situated on the famous Ring of Kerry, The Smugglers Inn can be found nestled by a long sandy beach overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and sitting at the gates of Waterville Golf Links.

Located just one mile from the village of Waterville, this family run Inn is a haven for golfers, fishermen, horse-riders, walkers and anyone who enjoys fine scenery. The guesthouse has 13 en suite rooms complete with TV, hairdryers and tea/coffee making facilities, and most rooms boast breathtaking sea or mountain views. Free parking. Free WiFi. The award winning gourmet restaurant is world famous for its fresh fish and local meat dishes.

Menus and food are created and prepared by Chef/Proprietor Henry Hunt, using fresh seasonal local produce with a wide variety of seafood, meats, poultry and game. Specialities include Ballinskelligs Bay Black Sole, Rack of Kerry Lamb and Kataifi Prawns. Snack Menu also available in a fully licensed bar. Open from April to October. Reservations recommended.

The Smugglers Inn, Waterville, is now closed for the winter season. 
We re-open each year on Good Friday for the Easter weekend which for 2014 will be Friday 18th April.
In the meantime, enquiries/reservations for 2014 can be made by email or by visiting our website:
