Lovely selection of local produce

We spent our gift voucher from Facebug Campers here - what a treat, fresh pasta and a sauce, great honey and strawberry preserve and some good goats cheese -

Had lunch here with my sister, staff are great, friendly and polite. Food was fine, it seemed nice and fresh but there's nothing exciting happening on that menu. For such a busy little spot they could do so much more. Good coffee though

I have been to Rua a handful of times this summer and each time has been a delight. The new place on Spencer Street in Castlebar is always wedged with its lunchtime trade which proves how popular the place is. Hands down it is the best place to lunch in the town. They have a fabulous deli downstairs and do... More

Another delicious and pleasurable experience in Rua. My favourite way to start the holidays is to stop off in in Rua for their delicious Pate, to takeaway from the deli or to savour in the cafe. My husband had an amazing steak sandwich packed with the quality ingredients that Rua is so famous for. The staff were on hand, welcoming... More

Called in for lunch with my wife again last time and I feel dissapointed. The food was amazing, fresh local produce on plate, as on our previous visit but we were so dissapointed on the service by older lady over her forties that served us. It looks like our last visit.

Visited here for my birthday and I was not disappointed. Really like going into someone's home for a meal and so many delicious choices. In the end we chose the taster menu so had a sample of most dishes all home produced and fresh made. We would certainly recommend a visit.

Delicious, freshly made baked and savoury produce, with locally sourced ingredients. All with a good cup of coffee, in a central location! Park for town centre, and enjoy!

Called in for lunch passing Castlebar. Well worth the slight diversion. Staff very helpful and friendly. Food is of excellent quality and well worth the few extra euro to get such great quality. Wiil be back and looking forward to checking out their sister restaurant also in the town. Highly recommend
