The Cafe and Shop

Enjoy tasty food, good company and discover inspiring gifts
We’re open to the public seven days a week so do drop-in if you are in the area.

Welcome to our Cafe and Shop page!

Our cafe is open daily from 10am-5pm.

Here you will find information for visitors to Dzogchen Beara and information about our new online shop.


Our friendly shop and café team offer a warm welcome all year round. Enjoy artisan coffees or gourmet teas, with home-baked treats, fresh from our kitchen. Have a croissant after the drop-in morning meditation or a post lunch slice of cake!

Delicious vegetarian lunches are available daily.

Relax and read a book or delight in the constantly changing ocean view, seated at the picture window or a terrace table.

Enjoy a walk: circumambulate Ireland’s first stupa (a sacred Buddhist monument), wander coastal meadows or rest and unwind in the meditation garden. Then take a taste of heaven with you when you leave: the shop also sells local food products as well as our own homemade preserves.

You can order food and drink right up until 16:45 each day.

Our Baking

Our cakes, breads, quiche and cookies are baked fresh daily by our trained chefs using organic flour and free range eggs. We can make to order and we also offer gluten-free options.
