The BEST coffee in Killarney!

This is my "go to" coffee shop. Excellent coffee, nice seating inside and outside (yes, it's sunny sometimes in Ireland!). I've always ended up having a great conversation with a local when I'm here. A local I spoke to a few weeks ago said some ladies who work near Lir go there every day... read more

Definitely worth a stop in to grab a warm coffee, fairly well made, on a wet day before heading out on adventures.

We went in here twice over the weekend as it had such nice coffee. It was always busy and the staff were very friendly, a large selection of teas and coffees and they also do a very small selection on sandwiches. Well worth a visit.

A clean, friendly and inviting café: they pull an excellent espresso, make delicious toasties and have a nice selection of their own chocolates and truffles. A comfortable place to linger over coffee and surf the net.

Looking for a cup of coffee, baked goods and some friendly chat in a very little shop, then hit the LIR Cafe. The coffee is very good and there is a very friendly feel to it. The baked goods looked great, but timing was bit off for me.

Our hotel was very close to Lir Cafe. After long days of sightseeing in Killarney National Park and the Ring of Kerry, we enjoyed relaxing at Lir Cafe, writing postcards and reading. The cafe has a small number of outdoor tables. Service was very nice. The cappuccinos were perfectly made and I particularly recommend the cookies--they were a delicious treat!... More
