We were passing through Kilrush today and I liked the sound of this cafe from the reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed!! It was one of the best lunches I've had and the ambience and service was excellent. The soup and sandwich we had were delicious and the coffee and walnut cake to die for! Highly recommend you visit... More
