Great view!

Visited here twice on my recent trip to Clifden. A lovely cup of tea and a fabulous choice of tasty cakes to go with it. Try and get a table at the back so you can take advantage of the amazing view.

Called in for lunch with my daughter and husband. We had two bagels and a pie which was served with chips and we also ordered two teas and a hot chocolate.

I visited Walsh with my girlfriend this August, while the pastries was nice, the coffee however was worse than Irish weather on a cold December day. I asked for a cappuccino, in return I received a burnt espresso with some Luke warm milk and some chocolate sprinkles on top. Do no drink their coffee.

Popped in to Walshes for an emergency sandwich to ward off a diabetic hypo. I wasn't particularly concerned about quality ambience or decor. The lady who dealt with me was just super. She was welcoming and efficient and sorted me out immediately. We actually went back the next day for lunch so we could enjoy the fabulous food the comfortable... More
