About Tabletop

How it Works?

Board game cafés are popping up all over the world. We offer everything you would expect from a welcoming café, with the added bonus of housing your Friendly Local Game Store under one roof.

At Tabletop you are welcome to pop in for a bite to eat or a drink anytime and not play games. If you would like to play, we charge a flat €4 per person ‘Games Library Pass’ (€2.50 for under 12s). Your pass allows you access to the Games Library, help choosing a game and with setting up games you may not have tried before. Depending on the time you visit, you will have approximately 1.5 to 3 hours on your table.

The Opening of TabletopWest In January of this year we decided to make the move to Bantry, in beautiful West Cork. One half of the tabletop team, Emer, originally comes from Bantry, and has longed for a return to the coast, and an escape from the city. The other half...
