A perfect stop after St. Mary's Cathedral on the way to St. John's Castle.The place and staff are warm and welcoming. The menu offers different options for those looking beyond stew or fish. Flowers at every table is a nice touch.

Nelly's café is an absolutely charming spot for brunch in Limerick. The teapot was gorgeous and the food pretty good too - would recommend the French Toast!

Stopped for lunch here while visiting Limerick. The staff are friendly and the food is reasonably priced. I really can’t fault it at all. Give it a try if you’re in the area!

15th Century Cafe/Bar situated in the historic Bourke House. Our location grants us a beautiful view of St.Mary's Cathedral and The Old Exchange Wall. We are a short 2 minute walk from King Johns Castle. A perfect opportunity to gain a bit of respite on your travels. Come in and enjoy some coffee, some food and friendly service. Soak in the historic atmosphere of our cafe, the old medieval stone work is still visible and we also have a segment of the old walls of Limerick in our spacious outdoor seating area.
