While the rest of the group was touring ABC (Another Bloody Castle), I wandered around the town and had a delicious snack at this warm place. It seemed popular with the locals, which always is a good sign. The staff were quite friendly.

We went through Cahir after visiting the Rock of Cashel. After a side trip to Cahir Castle (do it!), we wanted lunch and found this restaurant. Not great, not terrible, not memorable. Just OK. I wouldn't recommend it as a destination, but if you're passing through and just want to grab something to get by, it's fine.

A recommended stop for much needed breakfast stop. A great village to explore and small market on a Saturday, the day we visited. A great Irish breakfast served by lovely staff. Thank you.

My husband and I went here for breakfast on a Monday morning. The breakfast menu is very poor so we just had a scone each, tea and coffee. Scones and tea - lovely. Coffee was dreadful. The downstairs is dated and not so clean. Needs a makeover badly. The toilets are upstairs and the upstairs seating area is like a... More
