Dine in Dingle

Ireland is beautiful everyday and as I write she is bathing in sunshine and all the better for it.  West Cork is one of my favourite corners, a place to which I regularly escape when I can.  I find calm there.  Kerry though. Kerry is very special. She is magic.

A couple of weeks ago I had reason for a flying visit to Dingle and roamed its little maze of streets in search of a coffee.  We found the Pantrí. And Coffee.  And Amazing Crumble.  Look :

Pantri Dingle Doorway

Fruit Cumble Pantri Dingle

Coffee Crumble Cream Pantri Dingle
Flowers Pantri Dingle

Their Facebook page has the following information : (Details current on 14th May 2019)

Pantrí is a small cafe with a gorgeous hidden garden right in the centre of Dingle town. We serve Breakfast/Brunch and lunch using quality local and organic produce where we can. Plenty of Veggie/Vegan/GF options available too so pop in!
Cosy café and gorgeous garden right on Lower Main St. Dingle, Co:Kerry. Serving Breakfast/Brunch, Lunch, fresh pressed juices and coffee
Open every day except Tuesday 10am-4pm (Food until 3pm)
Sunday Brunch all day 10am-3pm
It is a true little Gem, with a lovely garden space out the back and I highly recommend you give this a try.
Next up is Sammy’s.  Not technically in Dingle but close enough.  If you are visiting Dingle you will surely stop off at Inch Strand.

Sammy’s restaurant has been taken over in 2019 by the Kilkenny Group and on the day we visited food and service were excellent.  Good coffee too!
