This is a cute spot to grab a coffee or something to eat - we had grilled cheese sandwiches. Free wifi in the cafe as well.

Went in as we were passing for quick snack and tea, toasted sandwiches were lovely. Tea wasnt very nice due to local water. Nice cafe all in all.

I noted the cafe yesterday as I walked the town--it's a standout and has a nice feeling. Cold after taking a jaunting cart ride, my driver said Lir Cafe across the street was the best for coffee or hot chocolate. In I went and it is fabulous!!!! The best mocha I've ever had! The barista, a pretty blonde was so... More

By far the nicest coffee around. And I would know, I've tried them all. Not only that, it's also the nicest cafe in town to go sit! It's quite on the small side, so if you can find it on a quiet evening (I'll admit, it's usually quite busy) then I wholeheartedly recommend that you wander in and sit down.... 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.
