“Great cafe!”
Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

Visited here after getting to Clifden & decided I wanted to explore the coast. A great little cafe (at the sailing club) with atmosphere & great views with really friendly staff. Well worth a visit out of town, albeit a short trek along the coast.

“Coffee with a great view”
Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

So picturesque and very fast service! A chance to stop in a little hidden spot in the middle of nowhere! Found it by accident but will definitely be back!

Reviewed June 29, 2014

Located along the dead end coastal road away from Clifden this was a great find . Not grand luxe but very welcoming , fantastic location and views and avery good snack and food selection freshly prepared and certainly not expensive. A limited 3 red 3 white wine list but good value selections. Great helpful staff . Value for money exceptional

“Guinness with a view. Look no further!”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

Fantastic little cafe in Clifden, Ireland. We happened to be going through town in May and just wanted to stop for a drink somewhere as you do. Walked down to the beach and eventually ended up in the Boardwalk. Pretty nice views and comfy sofas as well, where you can just sit back and enjoy the view. Bar staff very friendly as well. They do serve food, which we didn't try on this occasion, however the menu looked quite nice as well.

“Nice little Gem”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

Nice little spot hidden down by the pier. Friendly guy called Bart looked after us, perfect for a light refreshment following the walk around
