Small coffee shop in Killarney that serves delicious coffee and chocolates. I think they had some sandwiches & soup but we did not partake. They have some outdoor tables if the weather is nice enough. Inside there are a few small tables for maybe about 15 people. There is a bar along the window looking out and a small couch/chair...

Stopped by Lir Cafe for an afternoon snack and tried their AMAZING marshmallow hot chocolate and a cookie. The cookies were soft and paired perfectly with the hot chocolate. It was definitely a special treat I will never forget.

Great coffee but was a bit disappointed that the range of chocolates were pretty poor. The staff were young ladies and did not seem customer orientated, more interested in their own social scene and I felt a coldness- pity really as it used to be a friendly place for a cappuccino and a gorging of handmade chocolates!

It is a great place to stop and have a little pick me up dessert. They offer a variety of coffees, good selection of teas, hot chocolate with mallows and cream ( yam!) as well as scones and a limited number of pastries. We enjoyed the free WiFi and friendly service.

Our scone was quite good, but the staff was extremely rude. Inside of cafe could use some sprucing up.

A very good place to just sit and enjoy one of the many coffee or tea selections or even a hot chocolate, with or without a small snack. You probably will be tempted also with some of the many chocolates which are on display. This is not a place for you would come to for a meal but they do... More
