Description

Owned by weaver and painter, this is an idyllic setting for a quiet bite to eat and cup of tea. Cozy up inside, watching geese splash outside in puddles and descending rain. Or, if the sun is out, sit outside and view mesmerizing Clogher Bay and Three Sisters silhouettes.

Menu includes Irish Lamb Stew with brown bread, 14 euro. Homemade sandwiches, 3.50 euro. Homemade desserts include carrot cake and chocolate fudge pie. "Salads, vegetables, and herbs from our own garden," reads the menu. "Eggs from our hens as much as possible. All our fish is sourced locally. Our meat is 100% Irish and sourced on the Dingle Peninsula."

The gallery includes paintings and hand-woven scarves by artist Aine, and poetry and writings by author Micheál Ó Dubhshláine.
