‘ADULT ONLY’ COFFEE BAR
Our coffee bar is home to 1000 kg of cast iron Giesen Manufactured coffee roasting machine. Live roasting happens most days and this is part of the allure and experience at our coffee bar. The roaster is located in an open an setting. Due to the live nature of our coffee roasting business and heavy machinery in use, children are not permitted on the premises. Supervised children may accompany an adult who is buying coffee to go. As a rule of thumb, if your children are taller than you they are welcome to stay and enjoy the experience.
COFFEES ON THE BARWe offer a choice of up to 8 origins at any one time. It's not the fastest way to make coffee but it's the best way to guarantee flavour and consistency in our brews. Choose your coffee type at the bar from our selection of in house roasted specialty coffees. Every coffee origin is ground and extracted or brewed to order. 18g - 23g coffee in every espresso shot. All of our desserts are baked in house.

THINGS TO DO WHEN VISIT
The village is dominated by 3 public buildings, Matt the Threshers Inn & Restaurant, Coopers Bar and The Coffee Roastery, the oldest building in the village, while the Railway Station and the old Creamery are 200m from the village centre.
When you visit The Old Barracks Roastery, you can see Moylussa, County Clare’s highest point (532m) and the River Shannon as it flows into Lough Derg.
Birdhill can also be your little walking destination. Tountinna is a short trail walk taking in minor roads and waymarked paths. The Pollagh Trail follows the Yellow Walking Loop over a distance of 3 km.
STREET FOOD GARDEN
Since the start of the year we have invited different pop ups along, and most weekends we have been lucky enough to have great feedback and super vibes. We have taken it a little further by re-defining what a community garden is. We now also has a food offering in a form of a street food garden during the weekends. This funky space with food and drinks, still for adults, is also available to lunches, barbeques, parties, work get togethers, and even a few gigs.
