About
Top of Coom, is Irelands Official Highest Pub is set 1045ft above sea level. The pub overlooks the Glanlee valley to the west and the Muscrai valley to the east. The pub is situated in an area of great natural beauty. Music sessions can often break out when least expected which is not surprising considering the pub is renowned throughout traditional music circles and its location near the Muscrai Gaeltacht means a visitor may often hear a word or two of Irish language spoken. Established in the middle of the 19thCentury, as the fifth generation of the Creedon family Tim, Eileen and their sons will offer a warm welcome to all who come through the door. Although its appearance has changed, as well as the drinks served, the one constant in the history of the Top of Coom pub is that its’ at the heart of the community and everyone who comes through the door leaves a friend.

We drove pasted a sign saying something like 'We're open and look forward to welcoming you'. However, when we got up there the pub was closed. There was nothing I could see outside that said the opening hours so cannot even recommend when would be a good time to visit.

Saw signs for this pub and decided to head for an adventure. The road there seemed like it was 20 miles but it was probably only 9 miles of narrow winding awesomeness. The higher we got the more the fog rolled in. It was quintessential Ireland. When we got there the pub looked closed but the door was unlocked so we went in. The owners were cleaning up from a wedding party the night before. While they weren't officially open we were invited in and poured a pint. They didn't serve food at the time we visited but indicated that they were working on opening up a kitchen.

Sign at end of road said 'business as usual' but we drove all the way up in a campervan to find that the place was closed - with no sign in the window or nothing, There was signs of life but no-one came to speak to us.

The highest pub in Ireland is worth a visit/detour. Between Killarney and Cork, just outside of Macroom is this lovely local pub out in the middle of nowhere at the top of
winding road. Once inside enjoy a friendly pint of Guinness and a game of darts and/or
billiards. Nice place.

A warm welcome awaits from Eileen at The Top of Coom - it was well worth the detour, and we got some very good sightseeing advice for the Ring of Kerry. Will definitely go back!

Just the warmest hospitality , we were welcomed by lovely landlady Eileen & she handed chocolate bunnies to all the kids. Guinness is great according to my husband & the place is immaculate. The loos are spotlessly clean. The views to die for

After a long day visiting Cobh and then the Jameson Distillery in Midleton we were meandering back to Kenmare, when our bus driver decided to take a little detour. Being our first visit to Ireland, we could not imagine what might be waiting for us at the top, Owners and patrons alike welcomed our busload (well, probably 20 of us) of happy tourists, our thirst was quickly quenched and friendly banter with the local characters kept us there longer than we expected. We had heard that you can some time see a goat or two wander by while at the bar, we weren't so lucky that day. It is definitely on my list for my next trip back this spring.

Hi We called to the top yesterday evening, and found a fantastic inclusive music session there. some 90+ singers throughout the day with no song repeated! also some great traditional local musicians and visitors. very festive atmosphere, and a warm welcome for all. The Craic was mighty. It's a very special place and well worth a visit. Also in my opinion, the best Guinness anywhere. Eileen and Tim Creedon are the consummate hosts and make all feel welcome. Call and see for yourself, you will not be disappointed. Highly recommended.

Just a short, scenic drive from Macroom up the hills of the cork / Kerry border. A warm fire and friendly host Eileen greeted us as we entered into the newly refurbished pub. The Guiness was lovely, matching the beauty of the scenery of the area. The pub is very comfortable, lots of room and compete with a pool table and dart board. We can't wait until our next visit to the Top of Croom.

Followed signs promoting highest pub in Ireland traveled up road only to find it close down. They need to put a closed sign at bottom of Mountain when they are not open
