The Fermanagh studio behind Enniskillen’s newest coffee shop

A successful Co Fermanagh business is the driving force behind the latest coffee shop to open up in Enniskillen.

Creative studio Sugar Projects has taken up residence at the former offices of local newspaper the Fermanagh Herald on Belmore Street in Enniskillen, and launched coffee dock White Rabbit on its ground floor.

Four new jobs have been created as a result of the new coffee shop which has proved a hit among local coffee fans.

The web and graphic design company recently celebrated a decade in business and founder Ronan Cassidy says he wanted his business to be part of the Enniskillen community.

“We wanted to be a part of the town community,” Ronan said.

“We have a wealth of creative talent in the Fermanagh area. We’re investing in our offices, our people and our company culture to demonstrate to prospective clients and future recruits that as a creative studio we can compete toe-to-toe with city-based agencies.

“We thought there was a great opportunity for passing trade with the coffee shop on the ground floor.

“It’s nice to offer something a bit different on the high street, it’s nice to see people coming back again and again already.”

While White Rabbit doesn’t have the space to offer sit-in options at this stage, Ronan says they want to carve out a niche for top-notch coffee and food to go.

“We spent a lot of time sourcing what we thought was really good coffee and we’ve had good reports back on it so far.

“It takes a little bit of time to build these things up, it’s a risk but it’s something that we want to give a try.

“Enniskillen has got a lot of places where you can sit in and get a nice lunch, we’re very lucky to have that.

“We haven’t got the space to have sit-in but there are enough people that pass by our doors that we are hoping to gain a reputation for being able to get a great coffee, quickly.”
