The Perfect Irish Coffee at Kytelers Inn

Here are the easy to follow steps to perfect (in our opinion) the best known Irish Coffee in Kilkenny... Maybe even the World.

The Glass
A nice footed glass with a handle is our preference here at Kytelers Inn. It allows the customer to savour the rich coffee and whiskey without scalding the hand.

The Coffee
A big shot of espresso is usually best, but instant will do fine.

The Ingredients

  • 1 heaped teaspoon of Coffee (or One shot of espresso)
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of brown sugar
  • 1 Full measure: Powers whiskey (preferably) 
  • Half whipped Cream
  • Garnish: Chocolate powder


  1. Heat the Glass
  2. Pour in espresso and add water until half way up the glass
  3. Add the brown sugar and stir well
  4. Add the shot of Whiskey
  5. Top up with water until 2cm from the rim of the glass
  6. Add the half whipped cream to the top being careful to rest it on the surface.
  7. Garnish with a little sprinkled chocolate
  • Always heat the Glass
  • Consume soon after don't want your coffee getting cold
  • Enjoy
  • DON'T STIR!!!!
