Overlooks the Pollock Holes (also known as the Diamond Rocks). The staff are incredibly hard working, food is good, the cakes are so tempting. Shame it doesn't stay open long enough to enjoy a glass of wine as the sun goes Dow.More

Hi, just returned from dinner. We all had a Lasagne, chips and salad and without saying a thing, we both felt the lasagne was only average. It wasn’t that hot either. I love the setting and their desserts but this classic main course was not...More

This ideally situated cafe was a perfect place to hang out during Ireland’s hot spell. It’s close to a car park and at the beginning of a way-marked cliff top walk. The service is pleasant and efficient. We didn’t eat - just had drinks.
