I've twice had lunch here and could not possibly recommend it too highly. The food is not only delicious, but mostly organic and homemade on the premises. And all served by the wonderfully friendly staff, including the female owner: her husband is the chef.
I'm not a cake eater, but even I was tempted by their cakes!!

Went for lunch and I had a wonderful salmon quiche with lovely tasty salads . Nice varied menu. Great place to sit and relax. Also liked the wi-Fi sign.

A wonderful place to relax and unwind alone or with friends. Ballinahown is a charming award winning village just a short drive from Athlone, and close to the visitor attractions Clonmacnoise and Lough boora. Indulge yourself in the Tea rooms but allow a little time to stroll around the village. The church and Celtic roots crafts are beside the Tea rooms and I suggest popping into both. Family's with young kids will love the playground set in the wooded area across from Flynns pub (with luck you'll have a chance to indulge yourself there too). Finally the village has a signed walk that will take 15 mins or so. Well worth making time for. You'll look forward to coming back!

Tea Rooms are clean and tidy upstairs above a craft shop which opens seasonly!

Only dislike of decor is panel units to "shop like" and modern for what is a quaint tea room!

Special of the day looked good but we opted for panini's which were very nice!

Apple tart nearly like what mother makes except base needed a few more minutes in the oven!

Good coffee
