“Perfect.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

Excellent food and drink with an amiable (and very helpful!) owner who pointed us in the direction of what would turn out to be some of my favorite spots during our visit to Ireland.

All in all, the perfect place to have stumbled upon after a long day of trekking through the rain. Just wonderful.

“Well worth a detour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Amazing restaurant, also selling fine wine and art, full of character and charm, with lots of local information available.
We stopped for lunch and shared a platter of smoked salmon and mackerel which was out of this world...... The owner Cathleen is quite a character and quite a source of information on anything from The Burren to 1977 Vintage Port.

“Al fresco Irish-style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

I love coming here. The converted coach-house is full of character and Kathleen is ever-attentive. Despite the vagaries of the Clare weather, we've been able to sit and enjoy our meal outside. Food is great and good value, and the desserts are to die for. Whether for a coffee and a nibble or a full meal, I would highly recommend BFW. My favourite is the pear and blue cheese salad...

“Real gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Visited this restaurant recently. It is a real gem. Shared platters of smoked fish and and local cheeses with my wife. Delicious local food, presented beautifully. If you are looking for a real taste of Ireland, then look no further. This is a must visit restaurant.

“A real treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012 via mobile

We happened upon this adorable place on our drive back to Galway from The Cliffs of Moher and were so happy we did! We had coffee and a wonderful plate of smoked fish and cheese - perfect afternoon snack. The place couldn't be more adorable and inviting. A must stop!
