The bakery items look incredible but as three home bakers, we were disappointed in their flavor. We had strawberry cheesecake, which was really a mildly flavored strawberry whipped cream dessert and a chocolate eclair. The eclair was filled with whipped cream not the expected custard.

The aroma of fresh baked goods, the number opf local people stopping in and the cafe will all make you want to give it a try. You can't go wrong. Tea (or coffee) and any one of hundreds of fresh bakery items and you have a real smile on your face.

We had 2 adult portion fried breakfasts in Walsh's, and 2 warm sausage rolls. It was annoying to arrive at the start of the queue and have to go back along the counter to review the pastries/buns etc before ordering. Our food arrived promptly, was tasty and good value.

The selection of pastries and food here was overwhelming. We ate here three times (two for breakfast, and take away sandwiches one day). Don't miss it if you are in Clifden for any length of time.

We stopped in for a light snack. We had tea, coffee, cakes and cookies. All were very good. It is a cute little coffee shop that I would return to if we are ever in Clifden again.

We go to Ireland yearly and visit Walsh's every time. We usually pick up some bakery items to take with us and also always get tea and something to eat before we leave. Nice dining area with some tables overlooking the water.
