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.

Early Tuesday morning in Dublin and in need of coffee my wife & I typed in “Where can you get early breakfast in Dublin….” And Keoghs came up. So one of our best traveling coincidences occurred! This place is an absolute gem of an establishment....Whilst we were tempted by the Full Breakfast we went with the Scrambled Egg & Omelette. They were cooked perfectly, the staff were helpful (& understanding of our general incompetence) and our overall experience set us up for the day. Keoghs isn’t in the middle of the action of Temple Bar but is certainly worth the detour if you are in need of good coffee/good food/good company etc. ….and the music covered everything from Bread, Belinda Carlisle, Pink Floyd, Van Halen & Clannad plus loads of others. Now stop reading this review and get yourself there!More

I've been twice. Recommended from my wife's visit there when staying across the road at the Wren hotel. Lovely staff. Proper breakfast with lots of flavour and filling for a hungry guy like me. Staff are lovely. Nice comfortable seating outside. Nice spot to chat...to the tourists too. 10/10.More

Best in Dublin! Great pastries, proper coffees, and full breakfast. Put your order in up front, and its brought to your table. Dine in or take out. There are 2 rooms of tables and, in the summertime, there is outdoor seating. Lovely vibe. I recommend...their “Mini Breakfast” (it’s not too míni!)More

First and foremost, Catherine works the queue and register like a well-oiled machine! I had my doubts as to whether or not I would die in here due to the line out the door, but I stuck it out and surprisingly I was able to...sit down right after giving my order at the register. The food does take a while to get out, but I assume the kitchen is small and with such a hefty turnover, things are bound to be backed up. But the wait it was well worth it, as my full breakfast (hard to find in the USA) clogged my arteries good and proper. The latte was also exquisite. I didn’t purchase any of the sweet baked goods, but if the bread that came with my breakfast is any indication, I assume that they are out of this world.More

We loved this place so much we went there each morning for coffee. We liked it because it was locals and not a chain like other places you can see around Dublin. Pastries and coffee were great.

My father and I had breakfast at Keogh’s. Plenty of seats and lovely coffee and tea. His omelette and my mini Irish breakfast were also tasty - lovely quality of food. I dropped the review to four stars because the staff member who rang up...our order seemed to be pretty cranky - not the most welcoming feeling and a small smile would have helped. Also, it took a long time for our food to arrive.More

Keogh’s Cafe was very close to our hotel so a convenient and excellent choice for us for breakfast. It is cafeteria style for ordering, but the hot food is prepared after you order it. We got into the habit of sharing one hot fish and...one scone each day and it was a good habit as you would not want to miss either the scones or the hot food. We had scrambled with sun dried tomatoes and avocado one day, and a “superfood omelet” with feta spinach and salmon, Both wonderful as were the multi-berry and the raspberry scones. Nice to have it nearby but worth a trip if it isn’t nearMore

If you are in Dublin, local or visiting, you must go to Keogh's cafe! This is the best place to start your day, both if you prefer a sweet breakfast or if you're more into a savory one. The staff there, the owner Katherine first,...is also very kind, warm-hearted and lovely: I sincerely had a very pleasant conversation and felt like at home. The first day I went there, I wanted to try their famous scones... it turned out to be a unique experience: they're very delicious from their warm soft heart to their lovely crunchy crust! The day after, I needed to go back there and I tried the full irish breakfast: everything is very tasty and you can easily recognise, giving pleasure to your senses, the fresh and high quality of the ingredients, from the first to the last bite! I can't wait to come back tomorrow morning for my last breakfast in Dublin! With love, FrancescoMore

Worked on a TV production a few months back and we were doing a very early morning shoot in Dublin. Keogh's Cafe was one of the only places that provided us with a good deal for a take-away breakfast for crew of 30-40 people that...morning and it went down a treat, particularly the mini breakfast sliders, sausage rolls and this vanilla & hazelnut croissant (it was a pastry of some sort) they were literally all gone before I had a chance to get one myself. James the manager was very accommodating at a time in need and a big thank you to all the staff that had to come in early that morning! Coffee there was also really good!More

We found about kleoghs because we were looking for a place to have early breakfast in the center of Dublin. It did not dissapoint! It has a wide range of options and even if some breakfast prices might seem a little above average I can...assure that the ample portions cover for that. Whether you are into sweets or a salty meal, I can assure you you'll get the right fix here.More
