Open Thursday – Monday, 12-5pm


The cafe has your sweet treats needs with our daily specials and classics such as Claudia’s GF brownie, as well as your usual suspects in the hot drinks department. Grab a cup to go or fill up after a walk.

Limited seating is available and we ask customers kindly to respect a short duration rule on tables. The beach is less than a minute away with plenty of “table” space there with an ever better view!



Open July – August

PizzHeiria is the epitome of a Summer’s day on Heir Island. Stunning views of Roaringwater Bay from the garden patio, the air filled with the smell of burning pine and oak wood from the pizza oven. Al fresco dining at it’s finest, our outdoor seating area has been spaced and extended to ensure staff and guests safety.

Enjoy our experimental checklist menu, be careful though, the ingredients can start to add up! We grow as much as we can ourselves in the garden and endeavour to show off the best West Cork produce has to offer.

Open Thursday – Monday each week, from 2pm to 8pm. Booking in advance is essential. Please whatsapp Craig on 086 8070715 with your requested date, time and number of guests. Limited indoor seating is available.
