The Hungry Duck invites hungry swans and ducklings to their nest. It is a place where a friendly atmosphere lives and good conversations seem to start. A good family vibe is born here. And not just that, delicious food. But the guide is about coffee so here is why we love it. The Hungry Duck is using Bell Lane coffee beans, an award winning coffee roasting company established in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath. The great method of hand roasting enables the company to create a variety of espresso blends varying in strength, body, acidity, flavour and aroma. Truly irresistible.
