“I recommend the Cafe which is open by day to the right of the restaurant proper on the corner of that block. It offers both a full sit down menu ranging from tea and cake to pasta etc...and is cheaper than the evening restaurant. It also offers an excellent selection of take away gourmet meals from their restaurant at reasonable prices, a huge selection of salads or curries, beef casserole, fish or lamb pie...2 with a bottle of wine for €25. The local secret is that they often sell their amazing fresh sandwiches for €2 after 4-5pm midweek so you can grab a couple and head to the park right beside it. ”
