  • The Roastery Coffee House

  • Food Facilities
  • Casual Dining

The Roastery Coffee House is situated in The Java Republic Roastery which is the home and brand house of the world’s first purpose built carbon neutral coffee roastery.

The Java Republic Roasting Room showcases itself to The Roastery Coffee House customers through large ceiling to floor windows. Every aspect of the roasting process can be seen.

Venture along the impact corridor and see the full impact of the roasting room. You will be surprised to see coffee being measured out for roasting, master roasters roasting coffee, beans turning from pale green to a dark chocolate glossy brown and the roasting oven door opening to pour freshly roasted beans into the cooling trays dramatically with smoke and the noisy crackle of the beans.

You will also see the full impact of the Java Republic Barista University (again through ceiling to floor glass windows) with a shining glass tasting table. The art and craft of coffee cupping happens around the table as the company chooses its varietals. Rows of green beans and speciality teas from around the world pop against a dramatic read wall as they are displayed in glass tubs on floating shelves.

You will also experience coffee roasting in a way that you have never seen before and will have the fascinating experience of being chatted to by friendly staff as they share their knowledge with you. And if you are lucky to be in on one of the days that David McKernan is in the building you may be taken on an impromptu tour, this happens but is not guaranteed as it tends to be spontaneous.

The Roastery Coffee House is an attractive café dining experience open to anyone who loves good, fresh food and delicious coffee, tea or chocolate drinks. Our food is carefully chosen to reflect our philosophy in supporting Irish grown and locally obtained products, prepared in our kitchen to give you the best quality, seasonal foods.

The menu includes a large variety of home made soups, freshly made sandwiches (with a variety of different breads, ciabattas and wraps) and seasonal salads (hot and cold) and tasty hot meals. And for those who enjoy something sweet, we serve pastries, muffins, scones and cakes.
