Wide variety of cheeses cut to order. Wonderful baked breads. Other condiments available-olives, peppers, etc. Good selection of other items. Husband and wife team - very nice and accommodating.

We did not eat a meal here, but we did stop in to get some jam and baked goods. The ladies who own the Hamper were so friendly and helpful! We really enjoyed talking with them and their jams and jellies were delicious!

Connemara Hamper offers great "to-go" meals for people intending to spend the day driving or hiking around Connemara. In addition to freshly made, large sandwiches, you can complement your meal with specialty snacks. There is also an excellent selection of Irish cheeses. Pick up a bottle of wine from the local grocery store down the street and you have a romantic picnic ready to go!

I have been visiting the Connemara Hamper for years now, as someone who stays in Connemara three or four times a year.

It is truly one of the great experiences in that part of the world - fabulous staff, Leo's secret houmous recipe, Eileen proferring endless samples of cheese, Louise's great sense of humour.

The food is fab, the cheese extraordinary, the coffee is the best in the West of Ireland, and it is something that I look forward to every time I visit.

Go and visit immediately.
