Project Name


Major Colgan'sWelcome to the heart of Killarney National ParkThe home of Kerry's best Irish Night Pub Show

Major Colgan’s (formerly known as The Jarvey’s Rest Traditional Irish Pub) is one of Killarney's most popular bars. Over the years Major Colgan’s in Killarney has become a landmark location on the amazing Ring of Kerry driving route.

Located in the heart of Killarney's National Park, the pub is only 4 Km to Killarney town centre.

Why the change in name?
Uniquely linked to Killarney and its wonderful tradition of jaunting car drivers, The Jarvey’s Rest was a name that served us well over the years. Now that we have decided to move towards a gastro pub experience with new décor and an exciting new menu though, a new name was in order too.
Why the name of Major Colgan?
An unsung hero in Irish history and a previous owner of The Muckross Hotel in the 20th century, we felt his was a fitting name owing to his affection for the hotel and his contribution to Killarney in particular and the country in general.
