One of the best places I have eaten for some time. The food was of high quality. The place was absolutely clean. The staff were most helpful and efficient. The outdoor area we were in was smoke free which was excellent. I definitely will return.

About us

The Thatch Lisselton is a family run business based in North Kerry on the Wild Atlantic Way. 

 Established in 1832, it is one of the few thatched bars remaining in Ireland. Four generations of the O Sullivan family operated the business up until June 2017 when John & Joanne O Connor and Elaine Riordan, Lisselton natives took it over. The old traditional style bar remains and features a welcoming open fire with an original pot and crane. A lounge and restaurant were added in 1993 whilst retaining the old traditional style. 

The Country Kitchen at The Thatch is Open every Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays from 11.30am to 7.30pm. A full menu is severed each day. 

 The premises is located at the foot of Cnoc an Oir (The Hill of Gold) halfway between Listowel and Ballybunion (8 km each way), 16km from Tarbert car ferry and 50 km from Kerry Airport. It is ideally situated along the Wild Atlantic Way North Kerry route. 

 The Thatch Lisselton is ideally suited for tourists visiting Ballybunion Golf Club or the beach and is a major attraction for visitors to the Listowel Races. Traditional music is a regular feature especially with the local wren boys at Christmas time.

Located in the centre of North Kerry The Thatch Lisselton is the ideal venue for all parties and functions.
