“The Bean in Dingle crew is the best in the business. This is a place for coffee lovers. Their House Blend (An Fear Marbh) and Colombian blend (which they brew themselves in their local roastery) are amazing. Everything inside the walls of Bean is well thought out and subtle (you can buy their various coffee blends in beautiful yellow tins CLASS!) a tidy menu for quick bites and a vast selection of sweet and savoury snacks. The place opens at 8 and closes at 5. If you can't find a seat, get your order to go and take it across the road to the gardens of An Díseart. ”
