So happy we found this adorable cafe. I honestly wasn't expecting much, being in such a remote area, and would of been happy with anything after biking for hours, but our lunch was incredible! Highly recommend the goat's cheese salad and vegetable soup - though everything looked very good. The friendly staff and setting just made it so much more... More

Watch a crowd of locals descend on Teach Nan Phaidi so I knew it must be good. We each had Vegetable Soup and Brown Bread. It was worth the wait and delicious

The food was great and the deserts were even better! The staff were very nice and overall it was just a perfect lunch spot. Wish I had been there longer. I can't wait to go back.

We enjoyed an early lunch at Teach Nan Phaidi immediately after arriving on Inis Mor. They had just opened, so we were the first ones in the door. Really cute place with very friendly staff. We had soup and the crab salad and both were amazingly good. Coffee was excellent. Prices were great.

We 9 had an assortment of soups, salads, pastries. All were homemade. One of the best lunches we had all week in a quaint, warm setting on a harsh island. Thank you, ladies, for brightening our day and warming us up!

This little cafe is a jewel. Not only is it charming inside and out their food is delicious. I have soup and my husband had Irish stew. You would have thought you were sitting down to your Grandmother's table. Don't let a long line stop you. It goes quickly and the end results are worth the wait. The cozy fire... More

We spent the day on Inishmore and stopped here for lunch. I think we each had soup and salad, which were generously-sized and filling, but my wife, who's a soup lover, *really* liked the vegetable soup. In fact, she spent the next week trying vegetable soups in Galway, Killarney, and Dublin -- and the soup here was by far her... More

This traditional little cottage seems unassuming from the outside, but don't be fooled - their food is great! Of all the meals I had during my trip to Ireland, this was the most memorable - and I just had some tomato soup and a piece of orange cake! The friendly staff prepare everything themselves and they weren't stingy in sharing... More

This is a lovely traditional cottage. It is a good spot to relax afterwards on the way back from visiting the wonderful site of Dún Aonghusa. It is beautifully kept, in the old traditional style and, in the spring and summer, is adorned with a beautiful display of flowers. Unfortunately, as vegans, there is nothing for us to eat here....

We stopped in here on a cold/rainy day on the island, grabbed the table by the fire and had such a great lunch. I was with 8 people and we tried the Guinness stew, the Aran crab, beef lasagne, soup, and the potatoes and everyone loved their meal. The service was remarkably fast and the atmosphere of this place is... More
