“Absolutley an attraction as well as a shop”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

We found Adare's Old Creamery many years ago and wanted to see it again. What an experience. We were able to find a wedding present we had been seaching for (beautiful Belleck cutlery and a "Wedding Keepsake Box"). Then I found THEE hat (only 40 Euros?) for the same wedding. Even my husband had fun (not a shopper), there are books to sit and read over a cup of tea and homemade scones. You could comfortably spend all day there. We will be back as soon as we can.

“unexpected delight”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

this was an unexpected gem that we came across on our last day in Adare. As soon as you walk in you are surrounded by Christmas! This place has Christmas from left to right top to bottom. There is also a fudge shop and tea area. We didnt have tea there but i think if we go back to Ireland thats exactly where we would go! All in all its a great place to stop if you are in Adare. Its a little bit off the main road but easy to find!

“Afternoon tea !”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Afternoon tea was an absolute treat ! Hot savouries and warm scones, very welcome on a cold and wintery afternoon. Unlimited replenishment of tea from very attentive staff. A real Christmas atmosphere to the tearoom. Only drawback was the drafty feel. Tearoom is situated at the top of the open stairwell, with two other open doorways leading of it ,making it quite chilly !

“Amazing spot for high tea”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Yes, the Old Creamery is a bit surreal when you walk in the door. It's an explosion of animatronic Christmas creatures (with a side room for all things Halloween the likes of which I never would have expected to see on the other side of the pond) that really has to be seen to be believed. However, once the shock of the life-sized animated gorilla band playing holiday music wears off, the shop does have some really lovely merchandise scattered about. You just may have to do a bit of looking to find it. However, the real jewel here for me was the tea room upstairs and the high tea service (15 Euro per person). I loved the sandwiches, cakes and tea -- beyond just the food, the whole experience was simply lovely. And I highly recommend their fudge as well if you have any sort of a sweet tooth.
