Limerick City Tidy Towns’ Monthly Award for July 2019 goes to Abbey River Coffee at Merchants Quay
Limerick City Tidy Towns have presented their monthly award for July 2019 to Abbey River Coffee on Mathew Bridge, Merchant’s Quay.
Maura says “This quaint little coffee shop makes the absolute most of this small scenic space attached to the Potato Market on Mathew Bridge over the Abbey River, while of course maintaining the historic integrity of this beautiful stone building with understated signage and floral arrangements on the exterior. They have also created a cosy outside seating area in the Potato Market, using upcycled furniture and plants which is a great amenity to have in this area. From an environmental perspective, all their cups are fully biodegradable and they also encourage the use of reusable cups by all customers to save on waste”.
Abbey River Coffee first opened in December 2017 and is a family-run, independent coffee shop, serving top quality, speciality coffee, tea, hot chocolate and snacks (including gluten-free snacks). They have quickly established a reputation for both locals and tourists to the city, and their loyal customer base is growing all the time. For more information, visit them on Facebook or simply drop in to sample the great coffee.
Abbey River Coffee is Limerick City Tidy Towns’ seventh winner for 2019, following Mint Boutique in January, Bakehouse 22 in February, Midwest Lighting in March, The Glen Tavern in April, Alexandra Dental Clinic in May and Thai Angel Massage in June, and all monthly winners will be in with the chance of winning this year’s overall prize at their annual event to be held early in 2020.
If you wish to volunteer with Limerick City Tidy Towns they meet every Sunday morning at 11 am at the corner of Thomas Street and O’Connell Street, and on Wednesday evenings at 6 pm outside the White House during summer months.
