Cafe logoSelf serve Café 7 days a week 
July & August
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.

The Café offers a small sandwich and salads menu. Limited seating is available and we ask customers to kindly 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.

Amm’s Homemade Heir Island Ice Cream

Delicious ice cream made on Heir Island. Lots of different flavours available.

On a lovely day in the summer what better way to cool down and take a few minutes to sit back, relax, and enjoy your surroundings, than have some beautiful homemade ice cream, served to you by Amm on one of the many lovely beaches of Heir Island.

If you’re coming over or already on the island just give Amm a call on 0899653459 to see if or where she might be serving that day.

Larger tubs can also be ordered from Amm, too. Please also follow Amm’s Homemade Heir Island Ice cream  on Instagram (@ammsicecream).

Amm looks forward to everyone enjoying her ice cream on the island. See you on the island!!
