If you want coffee and dessert, this is right in heart of Killarney, and easy and quick to get a nice treat quickly. Not a great deal of seating, though. Very nice staff.

The best coffee in Killarney, baristas have a good knowledge about coffee, staff are very friendly and they really make you feel comfortable. Nice place to spend an afternoon having coffees and also other options like milkshakes and smoothies are available. All delicious!
