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!!

During our stay in Sneem we took a couple of times the Irish breakfest at Breems Riverside. A very good well prepared breakfest, fresh prepared and matched to our wishes.

After having been disappointed elsewhere with the irish guinness stew we were a bit hesitant to order it again but I am glad we gave it another chance! The stew was very good and portions were generous :) coffee wasn't great but it's hard to get good coffee anywhere in my opinion. Only downside is that the floors looked a... More

A bit more cafe than Bistro. Free wifi and great desserts. Reasonably priced too. Closes earlier then the pubs

The cafe was very quiet, with little atmosphere, food was okay. Think was maybe because we went out of season.

We had lunch here outside on the verandah overlooking the river. Very pleasant. Friendly staff, food was good, we had burger and chips. Chips were particularly good. Wine was great value, we only paid 14.50 euros for a bottle of wine! Recommended

Since it was just lunch cannot say much more about the food did look around some of the larger platters being served looked ample and inviting. Service was excellent and quick to bring the food out considering the... More

Called here this afternoon during the Ring of Kerry drive. Came on the place by chance, got the end terrace table, sun shining on top of us, sound of the river by the cafe, it was gorgeous. Staff were very nice and food was very tasty. We had turkey sandwich, chowder, chicken sandwich, pizza and burger. All presented well, hot... More
