Had breakfast there this morning. €7.95 for small Irish breakfast and €9.95 for the larger one. It includes tea, coffee and toast. Much better value than the hotel breakfast which was €13.00. Lots of other choices. And they also do lunch.

I’ve been eating here for years. They make the most amazing soups and serve them with unusual breads or scones. I’ve trued every soup they’ve made and each one has been exceptional.
