The bus driver took a 15 minutes break on the way to Poulnabrone Dolmen, so it was enough to go inside to this beautiful garden and order a delicious chocolate cake. If you ever have the time, go there!

We happened upon the Tea and Garden Rooms for a late lunch on our day of sightseeing and travel. The staff were very nice and we are in a tiny little solarium. My colleague had a bowl of soup - a pail size really and I had a small sandwich and a cup of the same carrot & orange soup.... More

Second time here and was expecting more. Only stopped for soup and a sandwich. The soup carrot and orange arrived Luke warm and with nuts on top (no mention on the menu). Our sandwich was the most expensive in a long time. 1 small piece of bread with nice Ham and cheese and salad leaves however at 7.95, rip off!... More

Based on the recommendation of a local resident my wife and I visited here for lunch. This is a cozy cage with a very nice "sun room" overlooking a nice outdoor garden. We each ordered something different and both were excellent. We would definitely return.

On the first day we tried to visit it was very busy and they said they wouldn't have a table for half an hour so returned another day a little later. It was not long before closing but they didn't mind us coming in for tea, coffee and cake. There was four of us and we all had a different... More

We stopped by this quaint tea room for lunch while exploring the Burren. Lunch was delicious, I had the seafood medley and it was great. All the flavours paired perfectly together, easily one of the best lunches I've had in Ireland during my trip. The cakes looked delicious but we were already full from lunch so passed on it.
