Sundaes is great fun and you can see the lady who runs it loves it too. She has designed a number of sundaes which mix ice-cream with cookies, cakes, fruit and donuts. It's not too expensive but very indulgent.

Nice little ice-cream parlour in Ballybunion. Really busy when we were there which is testament to how good the ice-cream is. It's not particularly cheap but I wouldn't call it expensive. Definitely worth a visit. We've dropped into this place on our last few visits...More

Had ice cream doughnuts and coffee, great place to take a break! It's a good location in the town centre with limited seating but the home made ice cream is excellent

Great couple, working hard to make everyone's visit memorable. Fun talking politics, tourism and enjoying their magnificent donuts.

I had a sundae and it was absolutely devine. The service was polite and quick despite how popular the place is. Definitely worth a trip!

Great spot, must for after dinner! We left the pub and landed here. Highly recommended if you are in Ballybunion. Real homemade ice cream!
