“The perfect addition to your riverside walk”, The Kingsley in Cork has introduced a brand-new coffee dock along the banks of the River Lee – Bean & River. With this exciting new addition, hot teas and coffees, cold beverages and a selection of scrumptious sweet and savoury treats can all be enjoyed by guests and locals as they enjoy the sunshine al fresco.
Whether it’s a cup of tea, a morning coffee, a B&R iced frappe or a B&R iced tea, there’s something for everyone at Bean & River. A selection of crepes will also be available to enjoy including a delicious Toasted Special crepe with ham, tomato, red onion and cheddar cheese and for those with a sweet tooth, Nutella and Dulce de Leche crepes are sure to hit the spot. With prices starting from €2.50 and with vegetarian options available, Bean & River will be open from 11am to 6pm daily (opening times are subject to change, see The Kingsley’s social media channels for updates).
Commenting on the new launch, Fergal Harte, General Manager of The Kingsley says “Bean & River has been a great addition to our riverside walkway, guests enjoy the selection of drinks and goodies available as a welcome treat during their walk along the banks of the beautiful River Lee. We have ensured that Bean & River follows all government guidelines regarding social distancing and service protocols to ensure guest safety at all times. We look forward to welcoming everyone to Bean & River.”
Currently closed to the public for bookings but open to HSE staff, The Kingsley is set to reopen on Monday, June 29th in accordance with government guidelines. An oasis in the heart of Cork, The Kingsley offers guests a truly tranquil haven, just a short distance from the city centre.
