The food: Seasonal, Italian, Middle Eastern
Assassination Custard 7_edited.jpg

Run by couple Kevin and Gwen Doherty, this tiny, special cafe serves seasonal small plates, where the menu depends on what they can get from the market that week. Be prepared for a short wait for a table (as there are only two), and you might have to share one but that’s part of the experience. Only open Tuesday - Friday for lunch with free BYOB. Cash only.

"Assassination Custard is a sheer joy to visit, there are very few people cooking in Ireland with such joy and abandon. Go soon and often." Food 9/10. Value 9.5/10.
