I visited this café last week with family who do not live in the west and I was most impressed with the home made food and service. I live in the west and had not visited this café before I didn't know it existed it took my visitors from the east coast to tell me it was there. We were... More

When we stopped at the Ceardlann, in Spiddal, I was not too hopeful of getting a lunch but had a look anyway. The last, hidden, small establishment was a bakehouse and I thought I would be lucky to get some nice bread or cakes. I was quite surprised at the menu which offered so many interesting things. I opted for... More

The food and service is always of the highest order here. The place is so popular that it is always full when I visit, always a good sign. My children love going there as they have delicious treats. PS the babychinos are free.

While this is a cafe style restaurant it belies it's portrayal of being a cafe as the food is top class, homemade and well presented. The staff are friendly and helpful and wile the menu is brief everything therein is excellent. There was also a rainbow in appearance on the day we visited which added to the - finding food... More

Finding good scones should be easy but it is actually really hard! Well the best scones ever are in this cafe, they have a seriously good baker here. Wonderful bread and pastries too. All the food looks really good, the staff are nice and the location is easy with good parking. Perfect for Sunday brunch and good value too.

This place does incredible food, it's a nice to sit in for a coffee and it's in a stunning area that everybody should try and visit. The most incredible thing I've had to eat there is their beetroot and chocolate cake. I only ordered it out of curiosity, but it was outstanding. Their salads are to die for. The staff... More

I've eaten in An Builín Blasta several times in the past few weeks. The food is delicious - the salami pizza is a firm favourite! Jamie and his team are a great asset to An Spidéal. Keep up the good work!

Builín Blasta is the café at Ceardlann, the craft centre in the village of Spiddal on the coast road out of Galway city. It is a marvellous place for lunch and well known as such in the area so it is as well to get there early or be prepared to wait for a table. On my most recent visit... More
