Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I’ve only had Irish Breakfast there and I’ve done that a few times over several years. The food is excellent, great and friendly staff. Clean and bright, with three dining areas and always seems busy. I’m sure any other meal would be equally good and...I definitely recommend here for breakfast, which has plenty of choices.More

Located in Barrack Street, Cairde is a well established coffee shop in Ennis. From blueberry pancakes to wraps to daily specials there is something here for everyone. Outdoor and indoor seating and a cute upstairs outdoor terrace are available . Service is fast and friendly.

I came for breakfast. On waitress wore her mask under her nose, I did not care since I was sitting outside. The waiter who served me, did an OK job but was clearly new. Very unpractised and no interaction with me. The latte was very...bitter and my breakfast burrito was spicy and salty and no other distinguishable flavours. Will not come back.More

Had some time to kill this morning so had a lovely latte and today's breakfast special (potato boxty, poached egg, and bacon). Food was great. Service was on point and attentive. Value was absolutely fine.

I have been here for both breckfast and lunch. The food is lovely and service is pretty good. Prices are reasonable. However, like alot of small cafes it can be hard to catch their attention once you have your food.

I always enjoy a visit here. I especially commend their Blueberry Pancakes. Based on an American recipe. Just the right amount of food on your plate. The service is good and fast. Plenty of options for seating. In fine sunny weather there is an outside...sun deck upstairs. I would recommend.More

A very popular cafe just off the market area of Ennis. It’s very busy always at lunchtime but outside this time it’s easy to get a table on one of the two levels. They have daily specials as well as a good everyday menu. Staff...are always very proactive and attentive.More
