Just had a delicious ,very filling full Irish breakfast at Billy’s. Great value, delicious food and friendly attentive service. I totally recommend Billy’s for a cup of tea or a full Irish or Paninin or sandwich. They also sell fresh scones and rolls for take...away.More

Stopped here for breakfast as it was recommended by our hosts. Lovely little cafe, with homemade items (scones, cookies) and grocery available (milk, eggs). Service was good, as was the coffee and the Irish Breakfast (1 fried egg, black/white puddings, sausage, bacon, toast). Nice spot...to enjoy your time in southern Ireland, complete with a roaring stove to keep you warm!More

Billy's was Recommended to us when we arrived at our accommodation and again by several other people during the first few days. Popped in for a visit while we were on our way to play golf. Ordered coffee and cake and were blown away by...the service and friendliness of the staff. Value for money was awesome especially when you consider that it is run by villagers on a volunteer basis. so good we went again before we left Ireland.More

If you want to support local community then this is the place to go! Everyone here is a volunteer from the community and all proceeds go back into the community. People are delightful, soup was fabulous, brown bread was the best I’ve had on all...four trips to Ireland!! All the things we had homemade on site and the lemon drizzle cake was to die for!More

Headed to Ballyhale today to have lunch in Billy’s. It serves simple good quality food which was absolutely delicious. The menu includes sandwiches, salads, scones, desserts, beverages & a kids menu. It is a community based cafe run by volunteers from the area. Very reasonably...priced for the large portions you are given. Would recommend to all to visit.More
