I went here with my partner and daughter about 5 mins or so before the cafe was about to close. Without boring you with the specifics, we weren’t made to feel especially welcome by a particular member of staff, more like an imposition. Also, the...More

Been here before and came back again on our latest Killarney trip. Nice drinks, good choice of coffees and teas. Seems popular with young local people.
