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.

This place is very fast. I only ordered double espressos and they were good each time. They have wifi. Was reliable but nothing super speedy. Nice place.

If you looking for a good range of excellent coffees, this is the place! My first Flat White coffee in Killarney and it was exceptional. Delicious! Definitely put it on your list when in the area.

We visited Lir three times during our stay in Killarney, as it seemed to be THE place for coffee. They do produce a good Flat white - though a little too hot. (Our only criticism.) Croissants and scones are delicious, and served warm with butter and jam, as were the rhubarb streusel slices. Other cake options looked very good. Staff... More

before I even got to order here I was struck by the nice atmosphere in this cafe. The girls were singing to music while filling teapots and making coffee. It put me in good humour straight away. I had a toasted sandwich which was lovely. It is also popular with locals. You can sit outside on a fine day.

Excellent place for a quick snack or drink. Very busy and efficient. Blooming noisy as nothing in there absorbs the sound, so therefore can be difficult to talk yo your partner across the table.

This sweet little cafe was just down the street from our B&B. Visited a few times during our visit to Killarney to complete the Ring of Kerry. Just another place added to the list of why Killarney was a favorite stop on our Ireland experience! The coffee and treats were excellent. The sweetest woman took our orders and waited on... More

Our trip of backpackers stopped in after a night of hammocking. Clean bathroom, quality coffee, free wifi, outlets aplenty, yummy scones. Highly recommended.
