This was the only spot where we dined twice during our month long trip to Ireland and the UK. Lunches are ample and nicely prepared with the freshest ingredients. Prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is welcoming. We are picky and seldom go the same place twice while traveling, but this one brought us back again. Had the same waitress... More

What a wonderful surprise -- delicious soups and salads. The salad was inventive and wonderfully fresh. We were very happy we chose to have lunch here. And the cost was very reasonable. Comfortable dining; good service

Great place to stop at in Dingle. We were looking for a little cafe to eat something a bit healthier and lighter food after eating so much heavy irish cuisine. The Goat Street Cafe was great, the service was fantastic, food was even better and the upstairs dining room felt quiet and peaceful. It was a perfect place to stop... More

We kept returning to this cafe day after day. The food was nice, the restaurant small and cozy. Try the sticky toffee pudding!

We stopped in for lunch one day and enjoyed the chicken sandwiches. The bread was fluffy and light. We loved their brunch menu so we came back the next day for muesli and yogurt and the poached eggs. Both were well worth the trip. I definitely recommend a visit!

We were just traveling through Dingle and wanted something good to eat besides pub food. We came across this nice and comfy restaurant. The menu was not huge for lunch but I must confess, it was some of the best chicken I have ever eaten! The staff were pleasant and gracious. And the amount of food we received for the... More

The Goat Street Cafe is bright and airy with friendly service and an interesting menu. I was there for lunch and found the seafood chowder to be excellent, as were the fish cakes. It was a perfect spot for lunch and tea on a rainy afternoon. It wasn't open for dinner while I was in town, unfortunately.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful, later in the day we called back in for lunch, the fish cakes with a wonderful side salad. In conclusion good coffee, great food good service and a...

Had lunch a very delicious lunch at the very gorgeous Goat Street Cafe today. A wonderful selection of healthy, fresh, delicious meals and snacks on offer and I would highly recommend the lentil pie which was accompanied by a salad almost too pretty to eat.
