Myself and my husband stopped in here for a bit of lunch on our way to Inchadoney and we were so happy we did. Our sandwiches were so fresh with proper home cooked meat and salads. After seeing the deserts displayed at the counter we couldn't help but order them too with more teas and coffees ! The sponge cake... More

This was such a gorgeous restaurant. We had a wonderful roast dinner with so many different vegetables it was incredible. Nothing was too overwhelmingly huge but boy did we get full up... So sad that we couldn't manage a pudding, so they did a take out one for us, which just prolonged the happiness. Keep up the good work ladies,... More

We had breakfast here on three occasions during our recent stay near Clonakilty. Everything is freshly cooked with quality ingredients sourced locally. Service was friendly and efficient. We would certainly call in again - hopefully to try lunch another time.

A wonderful oasis offering meals, but their coffee and cake is wonderful. A wide choice of freshly made cakes/ desserts.

Waited over 30 minutes for fishcakes, asked for extra sauce the minute I was handed the plate. They eventually came out with it it was the wrong sauce and I had long finished my meal. This was the second chance I gave the place after having a bad experience there last year. It won't get a third! Bad value for... More

Called earlier today with my friend who is coeliac as menu said gluten free adaptable. Aside from having to wait for ages for menus, another wait for order to be told the only gluten free option was Salad! It seemed very much like waitress had no interest when asked about gluten free options. Opted for salad and requested gluten free... More

Had heard a lot of great things lately and I agree this place really is a gem! You can sit in Gearoidíns with no fuss, and enjoy a nice lunch and sweet treat with your tea/coffee! A rare find, even in Clonakilty for the price, quality and service provided even when all the seats are full!

We were left waiting about 30 minutes waiting to eventually receive wrong order, staff member blamed her colleague & walked away swearing, then only half the order arrived & we informed staff, another staff member came out & blamed us for the wrong order & my husband had to get the menu to point it out to her that the...
