“Great place for coffee/dessert with wifi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

We had coffee and dessert after exploring Cong and some of the trails leading to Ashford Castle. It was nice to have wifi access for a check-in. The service was good even though they were very busy.

“Need a quick bite?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

This is a lovely little cafe that closes around 4:00, but offers a great stop for a light lunch or mid day snack as you are walking around. They serve soup, paninis, pastures and hot beverages.

“Cosy treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

What a lovely cosy place to have a cuppa of tea and a scone! This cafe is very small but welcoming. You have a very generous scone with your tea. There was a good selection of snacks and delicious chips. Just across from the abbey ruins it is well situated. Well worth a stop in this very pretty village.
