The perfect antidote to touristy Killarney is this kind of funky, off-the-wall joint where you pay what you think your meal was worth, putting cash into a jar on the table (no credit cards). It's off Main Street on a pedestrian alley beside O'Connor's Pub, in a warehouse-like room with eclectic furniture and silent movies projected on one wall. In good weather tables sprawl outside. The menu is limited, but features fresh and strongly flavored options—soup of broccoli, Cashel blue cheese, and walnuts in a bowl made of bread; pizza with Serrano ham, arugula, and pecorino; home-baked chocolate or carrot cake. Wine is reasonably priced, or bring your own for a modest corkage fee. The owners' enthusiasm for fresh wholesome food has not wavered since opening in 2011.
