What a fantastic find. The array of cakes and tarts was amazing. In typical fashion my husband would have liked a piece of each one, they were so scrumptious looking.

Absolutely beautiful tea room and gardens, I think I would have paid in just to see them! We ate with a group of six people and all tasted from each other's plates, everything was absolutely gorgeous. The cakes were incredible. Great kids menu. Can't wait to visit again

Came here twice, both were delicious and quiet. Busy little place, but beautiful. Cake and tea and sandwiches are all good!

Arrived here mid week after hearing good things to find it closed on a Tue/Wed in supposedly peak season of June? Had travelled specially. Disappointing.

This tea rooms and cafe are delightful. It is light and airy with good seating inside and out. The open sandwiches are excellent as are the lovely display of cakes to go with your coffee. This place comes highly recommended.

Beautiful setting and very nice food. great place to stop and relax on your trip around the Burren. it has a lovely conservatory looking out onto the garden, can be a bit hot in the good weather but worth it.

Thank Gerg04
