The Workshop is owned and run by brothers Aiden and David. The Workshop was in fact that, a workshop, until a few years ago when the brothers decided to convert their fathers old carpentry workshop into something new.

The family have worked in this area for over 300 years and so the lads decided to continue this tradition albeit in an unusual fashion by following a dream and their passions.

They set out to create Cork’s quirkiest coffee shop/ tea rooms, a destination, that allowed people to drive just 15 mins from the hustle and bustle of the city to an oasis of calm. Why not come visit and enjoy the experience yourself, sit back relax with some delicious locally sourced food, sit by the fire and soak up the ambiance with a crackly record player on in the background.

With plenty of comfy seating we set out to provide our customers with excellent quality local products served in a relaxed atmosphere. Providing friendly and exemplary customer service is something we pride ourselves in here at The Workshop and we are fast becoming known for our warm welcome.

Our simple but delicious menu ranges from delicious gourmet sandwiches made with local fresh produce, gluten friendly soups and specials, and home baked desserts. Our specially blended teas range from fantastically fruity to the more traditional and Cork staple Barrys Tea. We also serve delicious & freshly ground locally roasted coffee
