We stop here fairly regularly. It has very good coffee and also the mocha is one of my favorite. They have a nice selection of food on offer . They sell a range of chocolate and other goodies to take away. They have outside seating and news papers where you chill out reading or just watch the Harvey's come and... More

before I even got to order here I was struck by the nice atmosphere in this cafe. The girls were singing to music while filling teapots and making coffee. It put me in good humour straight away. I had a toasted sandwich which was lovely. It is also popular with locals. You can sit outside on a fine day.

Excellent place for a quick snack or drink. Very busy and efficient. Blooming noisy as nothing in there absorbs the sound, so therefore can be difficult to talk yo your partner across the table.

This sweet little cafe was just down the street from our B&B. Visited a few times during our visit to Killarney to complete the Ring of Kerry. Just another place added to the list of why Killarney was a favorite stop on our Ireland experience! The coffee and treats were excellent. The sweetest woman took our orders and waited on... More

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

After a day of walking in Killarney national park and fish and chips at Quinlans this was a lovely treat.

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.

We stopped for a little break to get out of the rain and had a drink and cookies. The Lir Cafe was a cozy little cafe. They had light lunch items and pastries on their menu also but we didn't try any. They are very close, walking distance to the train station if you need a place to stop on... More

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.
