Every time we visit Cong I have to come here just for the Sticky Toffee Pudding! Everything else here is good to- but be sure you leave room for dessert!

Stopped in Cong for lunch, several recommended places were closed so we ended up at the Crowe's Nest. Had traditional Irish breakfast and it was huge. Great find.
