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.

Great quick stop before the day's adventures. Both the ham and cheese and scones were quite good! Friendly staff as well.

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.

In this cute little Cafe I found coffee and smoothies that were reasonably priced and great quality!!! Most Cafe's in Ireland I have visited have been over priced but this one had great prices and great drinks.

This is my all time favorite cafe in Ireland (and in England!). I come here every year and wish I lived closer. The atmosphere and location can’t be beat, and the staff is always friendly, fun, and helpful. The truffles and drinks are sumptious! I...More

This cafe is a great meeting place, it serves excellent coffee and other beverages, both hot and cold. It also offers tasty snacks and toasted sandwiches. But above all it has excellent staff who are friendly and efficient.An osasis of calm in a busy town.

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
