Pretty much went here everyday of our trip to Ireland. My husband loved the cookies and the hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows!! I am not a huge coffee drinker and had never had a "flat white" but it was very good , and they offer soy and almond milk options which was great for me since I am allergic... More

The best coffee in Killarney, baristas have a good knowledge about coffee, staff are very friendly and they really make you feel comfortable. Nice place to spend an afternoon having coffees and also other options like milkshakes and smoothies are available. All delicious!

Best place for relax, sitting outside on the busy street looking at the passerby people and tasting really very good coffee. We were sitting there many times during our stay in Killarney. The staff is also nice and friendly.

It looks like an ordinary coffee shop, but when you go inside, there are candies and chocolates on display, delicious looking pastries, and a decent variety of coffees. I was torn between wanting a mallow hot chocolate and a mocha, and they combined the two for me. It was an awesome drink!

Great little cafe. Cappuccinos were lovely, as were the ham-and-cheese toasties. Probably the best we had on our Ireland trip, with just the right amount of full flavored Irish cheddar.

This place is very fast. I only ordered double espressos and they were good each time. They have wifi. Was reliable but nothing super speedy. Nice place.

If you looking for a good range of excellent coffees, this is the place! My first Flat White coffee in Killarney and it was exceptional. Delicious! Definitely put it on your list when in the area.

We visited Lir three times during our stay in Killarney, as it seemed to be THE place for coffee. They do produce a good Flat white - though a little too hot. (Our only criticism.) Croissants and scones are delicious, and served warm with butter and jam, as were the rhubarb streusel slices. Other cake options looked very good. Staff... More

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.

Thank Bernie C
