Located at The Nest Boutique Hostel on Upper Salthill Rd, The Pear Tree Café, Bistro and Wine Bar, was created with three core principles of care – for the earth, for people and for fair trade.

Open daily from 9am, the café welcomes everyone from sea swimmers and prom walkers to holidaymakers, and employees on their lunch break. Alongside tasty offerings of homemade pastries and speciality SOMA coffee, visitors can also enjoy artisan sourdough loaded toasties, and fresh fruit juices.

Their neighbourhood wine bar has the option of seating both indoors and outdoors and offers a unique and wholesome experience to all its guests. It is a welcoming space where people can come, relax among good company, enjoy music, and taste loads of delicious wines, and cheese and charcuterie boards.

The wine list focuses on organic, biodynamic and natural wines and even includes wines that have been made grape-free, such as the Wicklow Way Wines’ raspberry, strawberry and blackberry wines. Catering to everyone from the experienced wine drinker to the novice, this wine list also thoughtfully includes details of how each wine is made and the individual qualities that makes them unique.
