Currently owned by a musician about to retire. A one person operation. He lived in India for a few decades but it barely influences his food. No meat except fish. Very small 4 tables. One is for eight tho.

We visited with two young children. The service was prompt and friendly and the atmosphere was very relaxed. The food was good and not expensive. Would certainly recommend it for a quick lunch or snack!

My wife and I had spent a wonderful hour in this lovely cafe. The garden is a tranquil antidote to a lot of the money grubbing Dingle establishments and I couldn't get over how reasonable the prices were. We both had delightfully tasty omelettes and...More

My husband was trying to find a bookstore that sold books written in Gaelic and he came upon the Wren's Nest Coffee House. We came back the next day, for mid-morning coffee/latte and a very yummy slice of quiche made just that morning! Comfortable space,...More
