Tony and Aileen

As her name suggests, Aileen Hart is at the heart of Harts. At hours of the morning most of us don't even know exist, Aileen can be found baking  scrumptious cakes and deserts ahead of the arrival of the first wave of customers eager for a tasty breakfast.

Aileen is on hand every day to welcome you to one of Ireland's best coffee shops. Using local free-range eggs, fresh fruit and cream for her cakes, tarts and puddings, the results speak for themselves - crowds of loyal customers speak for them too!

Equally dedicated to fresh cooking, Tony O' Mahony prides himself  as one of the few caterers in Ireland to still peel potatoes by hand. Tony and Aileen also grow much of their own produce.

As the famous Daryl Hall and John Oates song goes, Tony can be found most days 'busy in the back' perfecting beautifully prepared and presented savoury food.

Aileen, Tony and their friendly staff invite you to share a taste of West Cork and the famous Clonakilty welcome.
