Coffee on High is a beautiful cafe on lower High Street, just off Main. While you sip coffee or tuck into something freshly prepared, admire the beautiful Duiske Abbey while listening to the Duiske River flow by. From freshly filled baked potatoes to a choice of seasonal open brown bread sandwiches, there will be something to suit all tastes. We make our own homemade soups and brown bread too and our desserts vary depending on the time of year as we try to keep things seasonal, local and organic wherever possible. There is loads to do in Graignamanagh while you are here, from pottery making (Mount Brandon Pottery) to Kayaking on the Barrow (Pure Adventure), Bike Hire (Waterside Bike Hire), not to mention the fabulous Brandon Hill and Silare Wood for beautiful walks to suit all levels of fitness. We will prepare a fresh lunch to take along so you can picnic al fresco! Find us on Facebook.
