i wouldn't normally have a bun with my coffee but the selection on display just begged to be eaten, so who am I to refuse? gorgeous little cheese cake with a great cappuccino, just what was needed after walking the coral beach in Carraroe

Great bakery/cafe with friendly employees and superfast service. Recommend if you are staying in the area (and have access to a kitchen) to purchase the Guinness stout and steak pies and take them back to your place and you will have dinner ready to go.

We stopped in both days we were in Clifden. While the greeting wasn't overwhelmingly warm either visit, we ordered in and was forced to carry out the second time. The shop closes at 6:00, and when we arrived at 5:30 the coffee machine was off and they were removing treats from the case. Our advice - go, but get there... More

Great bakery with a wide selection of breads and sweets. Nice place in the back with seating. Good spot for a break from Clifden shopping.

Delicious bakery cum coffee shop - I only got a take out cake, but what a cake - divine! It was busy, and everything (including the savoury food I could see) looked and smelled divine... definitely recommended for the coffee cake😁

During a day trip around Galway we stopped for a break in Clifden, On the recommendation of the Coach Driver we visited Walshs Bakery and Coffee Shop. We had Quiche and Muffins with tea and coffee. I was impressed by the range of savoury and sweet dishes on offer. Our quiche was excellent and so I would highly recommend Walsh's.

This looks like a bakery from the street but venture in and you will not leave in a hurry! The display of breads, cakes, pastries etc that await you will prove to be one of the hardest decisions ..... deciding what to have is not easy! There is a seating area at the rear of the shop so you can... More

We stopped in for some sweets and coffee midday and everyone was very friendly and nice. The donut and scones were very good. We got sausage rolls and scones take-away for our road trip the next day and they were excellent, too!

I was here with a large group. We were served quickly. A large number of people had fry ups which they said we're great. I had a vege panni which was super tasty. It was so good here we returned again the day after for another breakfast. I picked up a few treats to bring home. The rhubarb slice is... More
