Café
“The best place for coffee and good conversation. Tell Julie you're staying at Amelia and Teresa's AirBnB, and give her our regards. Julie serves crepes, tea, coffee, and a variety of homemade cakes. It's a small and cosy place designed to make people put down their phones, and have a chat.”

Bar
“Their description: 'Dan's Bar is a friendly local pub with good value, tasty food and a great atmosphere. Very popular with sporting fans. There's a lovely beer garden out back for when the Irish weather is kind to us. The staff are welcoming and the kitchen staff are stars! It's not fine dining but our food will keep you going and at very good prices. There's a lovely cosy fire on in the winter and creamy pints of Guinness. Pop in for a chat, a game of cards or to fuel you during your day.'”

“Check the board outside for the schedule - Dowlings often has live music in the evenings, and is the perfect place on a cold wet Saturday night.”
