This is a decent pitstop to refuel when travelling around the ring if you're stopping to explore the picturesque village of Sneem. We had a 10-month old with us and the staff were very accommodating; they brought him a nice high-chair and a bowl of vegetable soup and mash, which he wolfed down. Thanks folks!

On a day trip on part of the Kerry Ring we stopped at Steem and decided we would have tea/coffee stop at Breens Riverside Cafe and then headed further along the Kerry Ring. On our return route we decided we would return to the cafe for lunch. I had the open topped prawn sandwich which was very tasty, th rest... More

Our tour bus only stopped for 45mins in Seem . We both enjoyed a great prawn salad with soda bread. Friendly service. We wished we could have stayed longer for dessert as the cakes and lemon meringue tart look soo good.

An early start to miss the tourist buses travelling anti-clockwise from Killarney this was the first breakfast place we found. Full Irish was only 7 euros and offered good size portions. Nice sized room and ok service. Would recommend

My wife and I had lunch here on 5-5-2015, the food was good, but a young girl came to clean the table we chose to sit at. She certinly was never told how to clean a table as she just wiped the debris down on our laps, and the rest onto the floor. She proceded to clean other tables in... More

We were here last summer - I'm organizing photos finally ): I had a turkey and dressing sandwich which was ok - hubby had a sad looking hamburger - will post pictures - We sat in a narrow hallway type area by the outside doors which wasn't real relaxing - on the route to the bathrooms - Can't blame them...

My girlfriend and I visited this beautiful and cozy cafe on a visit to Kenmare in early January. We both had the homemade vegetable soup, which was perfect for the day in question. It had a warm and welcoming atmosphere, with a huge stove lighting. We would definitely recommend a visit to the lovely cafe if visiting the area!!

One day we where late but and the kitchen was closed. But the owner opened just for us and served us his (In the meantime in Belgium) famous super breakfest.... More
