A good cup of decaf coffee deserves praise, a great one deserves a review. I'm kinda fussy about my decaf, this place is my favourite so far in Kinsale, along with a perfect traditional scone and homemade jam; a perfect way to start a Sunday...More

Stopped here for breakfast this morning mostly based upon trip advisor ratings. It was ok, but nothing special. My poached eggs were more like soft boiled as the yolk was almost cooked through. The bacon was thick and flavorful. The strawberry vanilla jam was amazing,...More

We went to Leona's with another couple on our Ireland trip. Food and service were amazing. We had a cozy table by the windows. Wine was perfectly paired. Varied menu items that met all the taste needs of our group!

Visited this cafe for the first time last week and can't wait to go back! I had the chicken sandwich with avocado, mozzarella and rocket and it was gorgeous. The ingredients were all so fresh and tasty, and it was a generous sized portion. Nice...More

Pretty poor value room. All ok and clean and a warm welcome but very overpriced for little more than a student room. Views over the bins were not good.

I'm sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us, I am also a little confused as i don't have any rooms that look over bins. Warmest regards, Leona

We ate here for breakfast (while staying upstairs). The organic porridge was excellent. However, on the second day it came without the compote as they had run out. Still worth 4 stars but check you are getting what you ordered.More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review . Sorry we ran out of compote for you, we make everything ourselves fresh in house and sometimes run out. We would always offer an alternative like fresh cream, honey or our homemade strawberry and...More

OMG, still salivating over the brunch burrito. Every single meal ordered by my family of five was devoured. The kids fish fingers are not what you think, it's actual fish strips battered. So great. Not to mention the fish cakes... absolutely amazing. Seriously delicious food...More
