Location and contact

15th Century Cafe/Bar situated in the historic Bourke House. Our location grants us a beautiful view of St.Mary's Cathedral and The Old Exchange Wall. We are a short 2 minute walk from King Johns Castle. A perfect opportunity to gain a bit of respite on your travels. Come in and enjoy some coffee, some food and friendly service. Soak in the historic atmosphere of our cafe, the old medieval stone work is still visible and we also have a segment of the old walls of Limerick in our spacious outdoor seating area.
