Firstly the breakfast was absolutely useless, rashers like leather and rock hard puddling. When I asked the "waiter" for a knife and fork she said she was "too busy", this forced me to eat my beans with my fingers which was extremely unpleasant and now I can't get the smell of beans off my hands.

We stopped here for a coffee as it looked very nice, don't be fooled..... the woman who served us was extremely rude. We asked for an extra cup which was practically thrown at us. There was no please or thank you and no acknowledgement when we got up to leave. Awful service!!!

Stopped in for lunch as I was returning from a walk through Killarney National Park. As far as Panini goes, the goats cheese, sundried tomato & pesto was delicious! The Staff were not only efficient but very friendly and welcoming. The menu is extensive but also affordable. Would certainly dine here again!

We visited one wet afternoon for coffee and cake, both were great. The cake I had appeared home made. Service was speedy and the staff were cheerful and attentive. Great place.
