About Us

Cafe Inspire, our student run restaurant, is open to the public for breakfast from Monday to Friday from 10 am and for lunch from Monday to Thursday from 1 pm. We serve a variety of dishes all prepared freshly each day using the highest quality local ingredients.

Our Story

Formally known as Le Crouton restaurant, Café Inspire opened its doors almost 10 years ago under the skilled direction of Chef Nicola Carey and Professional Cookery Tutor Darren O’Toole. The restaurant was opened to the public in order to provide on- the-job tuition to our learners and to allow them gain firsthand experience of the pressure associated with working in a professional kitchen.

Our Hospitality, Tourism & Professional Cookery Department provides education and training for the culinary and food related industries in Ireland and many of our past learners have gone on to have very successful careers within the sector both locally and nationally.
