“Early Morning Coffee”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Poets Corner is a great place to relax have a wonderful coffee and perhaps read a book or even buy a book.... it is situated in the centre of Kinsale, very accessible and just so different. Atmosphere is all about chilling and relaxing and a great place for that early morning cuppa!!!

“Books, coffee and cake : perfect recipe!”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Stumbled across this charming cafe by chance, as it had opened since my last visit to Kinsale.
Delicious home-made cakes and scones, great-tasting coffee, and second-hand books to browse and purchase: what's not to like!
It's not big, but the cafe is light and airy, decorated in cheerful colours. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly; staff are helpful and welcoming.
A nice addition to Kinsale and a good reason to return to this town. I wish there were more places like this!

“Great Cafe”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

A lovely little place with a cosy atmosphere. great decaf coffee. home made style cakes. staff friendly but not falling over you - excellent. they worked very well and calmly together which made for a very relaxed atmosphere. very clean Cafe and toilets. A place where you could feel comfortable on your own or with company. seemed to be very child friendly. runs a book swap which some children were availing of while we were there.
