The Bedford Café in Limerick.

A classic contemporary style eatery offering specialty coffee, a locally sourced all day brunch menu with a healthy twist and most importantly a warm Limerick welcome.

A Locally Sourced Menu

The Bedford Café menu is as locally sourced as possible and we focus on high quality ingredients with healthier twists to traditional dishes. Supporting Irish is very important to us and our menu includes Irish food brands such as Killowen Natural Yoghurt, Paddy O’s Granola, Ardsallagh Feta Cheese, Tom & Ollie Pesto; to name a few.

The same ethos applies to our beverages – our coffee is a specialty Indian Blend provided by Ponaire in Newport, Co. Tipperary, our hot chocolate is O’Conaills Hot Chocolate from Cork City. We have also recently introduced SynerChi Kombucha from Donegal to our cold beverages. To add an extra natural twist to our drinks, our flavours for our hot beverages are food grade pure natural food oils provided by doTERRA.

Old & New

Ask our Café Team about the clothes making history of Bedford House and learn a bit of Limerick History as you enjoy your coffee. We have blended old and new together in The Bedford Café and the classic/contemporary style created by the talented Tullio Orlandi shows how old and new can co-exist so beautifully!

Fabulous little gem of a hotel

Couldn’t recommend this little gem of a hotel enough. From the warm welcoming service off Denise & the team to the high standard of decor & cleanliness throughout the property, following COVID guidelines. Also in a very central location. Would definitely advise on getting the breakfast too was delicious

We picked The Bedford Townhouse and cafe for a night away for our Anniversary. It’s perfectly located in the heart of Limerick city. The room we had was fabulous and the breakfast in the cafe very tasty. You can avail of a reduced rate for the multi story car park across the road and all shops and restaurants are very nearby. We will be back!
