Downtown in charming Lismore, within walking distance of Lismore Castle and the Visitor's Center, its a tiny, popular place. Seems to be the choice of locals too. I chose a club sandwich and found it delicious and ample. Nothing fancy here, just solid.

Ask for a plate of their Lismore Biscuits. Many flavours to choose from, they go great with the coffee.

The Summerhouse offers nice sandwiches, pies (and similar), soups and cakes in a comfortable atmosphere. Prices are reasonable and the quality of the food is good. Service can be a little haphazard at times and its opening hours are somewhat limited.

We popped into this wonderful friendly cafe after a hard day's walking in the nearby Knockmealdown hills. We thoroughly enjoyed the coffee and home made apple pie served with a smile and some nice chat too.

We visited The Summerhouse for coffee and the delicious lemon drizzle cake while travelling from Wexford to Kerry. We left a bag behind which we didn’t notice until we reached home. Owen and his staff were so helpful in posting it to us immediately. We...More
