The Heron Gallery and Cafe

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.


The Heron Gallery is one of West Cork’s hidden gems, thanks to the wonderful artwork of Amabel Langrish whose distinctive, ocean-inspired and animal-themed prints are becoming increasingly visible throughout the country.

If the art is simple, elegant, fun and approachable, then so is the food served in the cafe. Light wholesome lunches, fluffy, generous cakes and soulful bakes, are all served in a beautiful space that defines time-out in beautiful Ahakista, in beautiful West Cork. If you can leave after coffee or after lunch without buying a piece of art, then you are made of sterner stuff than us.
