About Us

In September 1982, 'Poppies Tea Rooms' opened for business, and legend has it the owners chose the name Poppies after they visited poppies cottages in Bali. Since then, it has become a favourite destination for those who love tasty & wholesome country cooking. 


In May 2000, Peter Norton acquired the business and for the last 20 years he has developed and enhanced Poppies further with additional elements including a Take Home Menu and Environmentally Friendly Systems.


We look forward to welcoming you to our coffee shop😊.

Solar Panels

Poppies uses eco-friendly energy sources for the supply of electricity and water

Poppies has invested in green technology, it has a 2x2 twenty tube meter solar panel situated at the rear of the café that heats our water. The solar contribution to Hot water is 1156kWh per annum. In the summers of 2018 and 2019, the solar panel generated all of Poppies hot water needs.

Poppies has invested in long life energy saving bulbs/ LED lighting and uses sensors to ensure that energy is not being used unnecessarily.


The Covid-19 Safety Charter for Tourism & Hospitality Businesses

Poppies are delighted to be part of this great initiative by Failte Ireland.
We passed our inspection in July 2020, the first cafe in Ireland to do so!
