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

Just back from Dingle and I found this, " Little Heaven". Great tea and apple crumble and a real gem for relaxing. I will be back in Dingle soon and will pay another visit to the Wren's Nest.

OMG Linda, those two cats sit on the roof waiting to eat the wild garden birds that I happen to feed and love. An occasional small stone in their direction keeps the young birds safe. OK?

We stopped by mid afternoon on Sunday, still wanting breakfast. We had some great omelettes and that lovely Irish bread with butter. Loved the ambience! There's free wifi, clothing & gifts, musical instruments to play, world globes to study, and soothing music that's just right.
