This is a quaint and very pretty little tee shop, just around the corner from the hustle and bustle of the Latin quarter in Galway. Many selections of tea are available, and the scones and cakes were delicious. Linen tablecloths and china set each table...More

From the moment we opened the door we were met with a huge smile and a warm welcome. The egg timers that arrived with our tea was a novel touch. Great attention to detail. Definitely worth a visit.
