What a wonderful place to visit during our Galway trip. Interesting to see how the life was in Ireland 200 years ago. Tea and scones was delicious and lovely to sit down relaxing after a long walk down Salthill. Thank you! Greetings from Norway.

My title says it all. This is definitely one of my favourite hangouts (being a local from Claddagh) I think this really is one of Galway's hidden gems. Tea and scones, the warmth of a beautiful old fire on a cold day, art and crafts...More
