My wife and I now live two towns away but we often make the trip into Wicklow town to have a bite to eat in Halpin's Bridge Café. The food is excellent, the proprietor Robert is a charming and affable host who obviously spent long enough in the UK as a young man to have an equally charming Anglo-Hibernian accent... More

We have been in Halpins several times for breakfast and it never disappoints. Lovely food, freshly prepared and served by really friendly and welcoming staff. There is always a lovely atmosphere in there. Coffee is great too!

Went here yesterday. Welcomed as we arrived. Got chicken jerk sandwich. Incredible. As was homemade biscuit cake. I'll be back whenever I'm in Wicklow.

Lovely little coffee shop. Waitresses are charming, they very kindly bring my dog waterwhen we are sitting outside. Amazing range of indulgent cakes, lovely fresh salads too. Gets a special mention for opening on Sundays, even in winter.

We were just two ordinary wandering English tourists - looking for good local lunchtime fayre somewhere in Wicklow. What did we find? Halpins Bridge Cafe? Warm welcome, nice staff, interesting menu, fresh food on display ... and IRISH STEW on creamy mash. What more could we want? Good value and worth dropping in.

We had lunch here last Sunday 12/04/2015. The food and service were amazing. Eight of us ate together. The food is delicious with excellent service. We celebrated a birthday and they brought a cake with a candle out. What more could you ask for. A definite place to go in Wicklow and highly recommended.

Everything is fantastic here. For a small, homely cafe there is a large variety of dishes, which are consistently great. I have eaten here a lot and can say that without a doubt you will not be disappointed. The management and staff are exceptional and every customer is greated warmlyupon arrival. Try the cheesecake with a double espresso... my favourite.
