Lovely walk by the flaggy shore with three kids, walked up a path to a bright yellow ice cream parlour. The story of the cafe was told by the owner, his wife who normally runs it was missing so he was playing host - ably...More

Heard about this place doing research on the Wild Atlantic Way. It is quite a drive off the beaten path, but based on other reviews, we decided to give it a try. So disappointed. A ramshackle shop (although the view from the shop is nice,...More

Takes some finding but we stopped in on a quiet wet Monday as we cannot pass a local ice cream parlour without sampling. The ice cream was good and the place was warm. The lady serving was very pleasant when we got talking to her....More
