Kerry Air­port’s restau­rant and bar set for a ma­jor makeover

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - NEWS - By SI­MON BROUDER

THE Gate­way Bar and Restau­rant at Kerry Air­port is to get a new look for the New Year.

Work on the four-week re­fur­bish­ment is set to start next Mon­day, Jan­uary 12, dur­ing which time the queu­ing sys­tem and gen­eral am­bi­ence of the restau­rant will be trans­formed.

A Cof­fee Dock fa­cil­ity within the Departures Area for out­bound pas­sen­gers to avail of tea, cof­fee, sand­wiches and light snacks will be open dur­ing the im­prove­ment works, while the bar and restau­rant in the main air­port con­course will be closed to fa­cil­i­tate the re­fur­bish­ment.

“The re­cent rede­vel­op­ment of the pre-board­ing area in our departures lounge has been a great suc­cess and now it’s time for the bar and restau­rant to fol­low suit. On com­ple­tion of the work, we will be in­tro­duc­ing a more ef­fi­cient queu­ing sys­tem, in­cor­po­rat­ing a new self-ser­vice area,” said Kerry Air­port Fi­nan­cial Con­troller Basil Sheerin.

The restau­rant will be fit­ted out with new cater­ing equip­ment and an over­all upgrade to light­ing, fur­nish­ings, and dé­cor.

The Board of Kerry Air­port said they ac­cept that there is never a good time to close an im­por­tant fa­cil­ity like a restau­rant and the man­age­ment at the Air­port are ask­ing their cus­tomers to bear with them dur­ing this pe­riod.
