A lovely stop on a coastal drive through south Connemara on the road from Galway through Spiddal. Food is super delicious. Staff very pleasant. Excellent service. Small so seating can be hard to get if they are busy. But it's worth waiting for a seat.

Situated in the Craft Village in Spiddal, this little cafe was full to capacity when we arrived & we could see why. The menu is exciting with nice combinations & served with super tasting sides. We had a sandwich which was freshly made with a crisp broccoli, chickpea & goats cheese salad and a vegan wrap with hummus, quinoa and... More

Whilst touring around the Galway area we dropped into the Spiddall Craft Village and cafe. After a browse around the shops we decided to pop into the cafe for some refreshments and were really pleased we did. This cafe is understated and doesn't shout out just how good it is. 4 of us had an assortment of dishes and drinks,... More

We were in Galway recently and went for lunch at this lovely restaurant. The decor is lovely and the food is really different. We all had different courses and really enjoyed each and every one of them. All homemade food. Very worth the visit.
