Knightstown Coffee Shop & Restaurant

This bright and funky coffee shop in Knightstown village is a great place to break a journey when touring the area.


There’s outdoor seating at the front for fine days and, inside, there’s a pleasingly old-fashioned café with oilcloth-covered tables; aside from terrific coffees, good home cooking is the great strength, especially baking (warm scone with jam, butter & fresh cream, chocolate fudge cake...).


You can have something as simple as a mug of soup and some home-made bread, a speciality sandwich, or one of half a dozen substantial savoury platters, including a vegetarian one, and there’s a small wine list.


In another room there's a great little 'gently used' bookshop that also stocks a great variety of unusual and inexpensive toys, books and games for children - the perfect antidote to rainy days on holiday.


And, at the back, a long corridor down to the loos (and internet room) is decorated with an eclectic collection of old mirrors - an inspired way to brighten up a long corridor.

Toilets wheelchair accessible; children welcome (high chair, childrens menu); house wine from about €4 per glass; Open Easter - October. Mon 1-6pm, Tue-Sun 10-6. Closed Jan-Easter. No Credit Cards. abbreviations
