Walsh's is a top class place to have a fine lunch. They're sandwiches and beverages are top of the range. And if you're lucky enough to get a back window seat the view is gorgeous. The bakery is second to none - every morsel is delicious - I've tried them all. The breads, the pastries, the coffees and the cakes... More

While visiting Clifden recently we came across this lovely café/bakery on Market Street. When we entered we were greeted with a magnificent array of pastries making it very difficult to choose one over the other. Further in they serve hot food and there is plenty of seating. We chose the window table and admired the lovely view. If you ever... More
