Tucked away in the entrance courtyard to the left, our café is a favourite destination in town for our locals, friends and visitors; a place to meet and relax.

The café is bright and filled with Judith’s hand-picked garden flowers, with seating inside, and outside on the terrace and in the courtyard.

Open seasonally for morning teas/coffees, lunch and afternoon snacks, the café focus is to offer freshly prepared gourmet sandwiches, soups, deli tarts and salads. The café is proud to support local food suppliers and businesses, and we use only Irish meats in our deli. Pastries, cakes and sweet treats are baked fresh daily in our kitchen, as well as our homemade jam. We serve freshly whipped ice-cream from the half door in the courtyard which is very popular with our little customers, and indeed all those who love an old fashioned 99.

Annie’s Sweet Shop, in the Treehouse Adventure Playground is a gift to mums and dads who can grab a coffee/tea or order a sandwich from the café, whilst keeping an eye on their little ones scampering through the playground. Open seasonally, Annie’s Sweet Shop also sells ice-cream, cold drinks, soft sweets and chocolate.

We offer a pre-order and collect service, and we also cater for private event catering for groups and receptions. For group/reception enquiries contact or call (0)57 9169735.
