Friendly staff, and beautiful inside and out. OK you're not going to find Byzantine tapetries hanging off the walls but still a very inviting atmosphere. The food was amazing and they offer a gluten free menu which was great for my girlfriend. Highly recommended.

We walked around Ennis looking for somewhere to eat when we came across The Rowan Tree Cafe. So pleased we did as it was buzzing with locals - always a good sign- and the food was excellent. Service was quick and efficient.
