Our trip of backpackers stopped in after a night of hammocking. Clean bathroom, quality coffee, free wifi, outlets aplenty, yummy scones. Highly recommended.

This was a quick stop on our tour of the Ring of Kerry. The coffee was excellent, the staff very friendly. Last but not least the toilet facilities were super.

Coffee was good, but pastries were very average. They offer only two-three selections of sandwiches, but good variety of chocolates and pastries. If you are looking just for a coffee break, this place is for you. Very friendly service.

Not a lot of food choice, but what there was, was good. Nice clean cafe, lovely people, it was busy so that means good to me.

The Lir Café became part of our experience in Killarney. We were here for a month and almost every morning some one made the run to the Lir Café for coffee and hot chocolate, both of which were delicious. Often, we would sit outside and talk with the locals who were also enjoying the ambience. The staff is exceptionally friendly... More

Had a coffee while waiting for our movie across the street. Happy to find a comfortable chair and wifi whilst we waited. Coffee was grand and the service was quick. Very nice.
