Relaxed vibes, 30 types of tea, wonderful concoctions accompanied by delicious sweet treats to feed the soulful atmosphere. A secret that won't be kept for long

Really nice place to go to relax with some tea and a hookah. Bohemian style decorations make the atmosphere very ambient. Good to go by yourself to read a book or to go with some friends and catch up and play some chess.

This is my all-time favourite cafe in Galway! The staff are polite and friendly. The beanbag area is unique and gorgeous. The quirky cafe also has a homely garden out the back which is quaint and perfectly secluded from the bustling city life. The food, wide range of teas and coffees are delicious! The late opening hours are perfect for... More

Good coffee and cakes and service. What more do you need? Vegan selection of cakes worth the visit, dozens of teas.

I love this place, it manages to have an atmosphere that is all about relaxing with a cup of your favourite tea and some scrumptious desserts. It's a cross between a Moroccan cafe and a Japanese tea-house, with some seating on cushions on a raised platform on the floor and a few conventional tables for people with 'less mobility'. It...

The Secret Garden is my favorite place to visit to have a coffee or a herbal tea in a nice relaxed and cozy environment. Their uniqueness is hard to beat with herbal teas ranging from Apple Strudel - Pina Colada. Any flavor that you can imagine, they have it in a tea format. You are always greeted with the utmost...
