Just the job for the hungry traveller. We always make sure we stop off here for a bite to eat on our way to, and from The Ring of Kerry. The bread is especially good, which we always buy to take with us, and the...More

Famous around the town for being a long standing fantastic bakery! Special treats always fresh can be purchased here. Hot food is also served although I have only sampled the breakfasts which are well priced and come with tea/coffee and toast.

Had a stop in macroom en route to Tralee. This is an old fashioned quaint little place. Not a great selection of pastries however the sandwiches are made with their own baked bread and are very tasty.

We stopped off her to grab a quick bit of food and get on the road again to Tralee. Service was reasonably fast and the food (cakes) were nice but the staff weren't at all welcoming or friendly. Maybe it was just an off day.

Macroom was the town of my grandfather's birth and we sought to get information about him and the family as he died when I was two years old. Well, when Humphrey Lynch & his family learned who we were they extended the most gracious hospitality...More

We were driving from Skibbereen to Dingle and needed a place to stop for a break. The lovely market town of Macroom offered lots of shops and cafes to choose from, but Lynch's seemed to be the local favourite. We had Americano coffees and chocolate...More
