Follow the film crews to this cute coffee dock and sauna in scenic Reen Pier
It’s our new favourite hobby.
Seeking out Cork’s most remote and unique coffee spots has become something of a competition here at Yay Cork HQ.
A fun way to see the sights and learn more about what goes on beyond the city lights, there’s adventure (and a good mocha) to be had in almost every direction.
And there’s plenty of caffeine-hungry adventurers heading for Reen Pier, a small but picturesque harbour on the rugged coastline between the towns of Union Hall and Glandore.
Perched at the water’s edge, The Coffee Cup regularly serves brews to visiting camera crews from all over the world, most recently the US adventure travel show DIRT and the BBC’s Julia Bradbury, who was filming a special on the Wild Atlantic Way.
They’ve even added a wood-fired sauna so you can make a day of it. Plus they’re a dog-friendly bunch so don’t be afraid to take your canine companion for the spin.

It’s no surprise that television producers can’t resist this magical part of the world.
“We are in a place I can only describe as coastal paradise.” The Coffee Cup’s owner, entrepreneur Katie McCarthy told Yay Cork.
“There’s whale watching boats and both day and night time kayaking tours so we are in a busy area.”
Sea swimmers and outdoor sauna enthusiasts can try out the new sauna all weekend (booking via WhatsApp 086 2526785) at €10pp for 30 minutes.
