About Us

The Broken Chair Cafe began long ago as a dream in the mind of Cliona & Michael Byrne. As these things do it grew until it opened in February 2018.

While the Broken Chair Cafe doors only opened in February 2018 the actual planning and putting together of the business started long ago. It has always been a dream of Cliona and Michael to have their own cafe and in typical Byrne fashion, they have made sure to do it right. The coffee, the food, the atmosphere is all excellent! On a sunny day, there is outdoor seating where you can enjoy the sunshine without having unending traffic going past. There is simply the lovely view of the rolling hills of Wicklow and the chance of a quiet conversation with friends.

The cafe is not the limit of what we can offer you. We also have a function room that is suitable for all kinds of events.There is excellent lighting with lots of room. We also have a wine license to cater to all needs.

We look forward to seeing communions, confirmations, birthday parties and maybe even a wedding or two as the years go by. We have positioned the function room so that there is loads of light and a lovely view out over the countryside.

Please contact The Broken Chair Cafe in order to discuss hiring out the function room  – 0402  33225 or use our contact form.
