I took my friends who were visiting in October. To the famine village. They loved the fascinating stories and how certain sayings came about. The taste of poteen was a lovely touch

Nice place for a cuppa after a tour of Doagh Famine village. Paid 9.50 Euro for the tour and this entitles you to a free cup of tea or coffee and a scone from Kitty Sean's. Scones where nice and homemade type, gently heated so...the butter easily melts. Wow.More

Memorable guided tour with 2 very brilliant informative guides. Really interesting. Places to sit and most of your visit is under cover, but take your coat. Tea room and a shop with articles you might actually want to buy. Six of us visited. All of...us enjoyed it. Just go.More

The food is tasty here in this seasonal outpost, but be prepared to pay through the nose for what you get, most likely because it’s a seasonal place. A scone, although tasty, is €2.4. A lemon drizzle muffin and a slice of chocolate cake are...€3.5 & €4.5 respectively but the cake prices aren’t on display. They do offer a ‘free’ tea or powdered instant coffee if you have already paid to visit the adjacent Famine Village, but I didn’t know it was powdered instant coffee until I was told when placing the order for our food and drinks. This is tight fisted meanness. I don’t see why they just can’t offer a filter coffee or another real coffee choice at the price difference between tea and coffee. It’s a cosy place surrounded by a breathtaking, awesome scenic beauty and the staffer was friendly enough but at these equally breathtaking prices it’s the least one can expect. We bought only hot drinks and sweet foods and paid over €30.More

Popped in here for a coffee before visiting the superb famine museum. Welcome was warm and friendly. Met the owners daughters and had a nice chat with them. Coffee was delicious, and we gave in to the temptation offered by their freshly cooked scones. Views...were excellent as well. Overall a super place!More

We ate there after visiting the Doagh Famine Museum and had their beer battered fish and chips. Well cooked, not greasy and a window view to die for. We were served by DJ, who was personable and friendly and met the chef afterward who we...learned was his mum! The coffee was excellent and we thoroughly recommend Kitty Sean'sMore
