Cupan Tae quaint tea house in the city centre of Galway. We loved having tea and scones after a tour of the area. Great service and reasonably priced. Lovely tea settings. Having proper tea a must in Ireland.

Loved this place, so cute and quirky. Lovely cakes and tea. They sell tons of different flavours of tea, we only stuck to boring normal tea but it was still lovely.

Stopped by by for lunch. Had soup followed by tea and cake. Soup excellent as was bread but cakes were not quite fresh and a little tasteless. Expensive for lunch - 94 euro - but a nice treat while in Galway.

Nice to find a place like this with old traditional values, even the music playing in the background us older than me. Worth a visit, try to avoid peak breaktimes.

I'm afraid I can't comment much on the food or the tea as I never got that far! Visiting by myself and asking for a table for one, it was clear from the outset that they were not overly thrilled at giving away a table...More
