We ordered two white hot chocolates, and they were very delicious. Not too hot, and tasted like proper chocolate too. Cafe could do with a little sprucing up however, and it was a little cramped inside. Staff were friendly enough.

After our Jaunting Car tour of the Killarney National Park, we needed a warm pick me up. We headed to Lir Cafe for some hot cocoa and some treats. The Hot Chocolates are decadent with whipped cream and sweet chocolate nibbles on the side.

Stopped for an Americano and a scone. Very friendly baristas, nice view of the street, and the coffee was excellent. Great place to read the local newspaper. I liked the place a lot.

Needed a latte fix and Lir Cafe did not disappoint. Our lattes were delicious. A variety of snacks and chocolates were also available but we had just finished breakfast so we didn't indulge. Our loss. A great central location in Killarney. Highly recommend.

Staff don't smile and aren't like other places. They don't seem to want to be there and aren't friendly. Coffee is lovely though.

Not far just past the Cathedral follow the Port road around to where the Jarvey's are and we are opposite the Cinema. Many thanks Alan
