  • We stopped for lunch at this little place on the fjord and it turned out to be a great idea. There are not many places where to eat in this area, that is very sweet and Nice. Menus for children are also available. We got a Cesar Salad very good. Recommended!

  • Nice place we came across on our travels, if you get a seat by the window you have added bonus of a nice view down the water. Food was good and tasty. 
  • Nice gift shop picked up some lovely local made wooly hats and a scarf. Staff are friendly and helpful. Cafe looks nice but did not have time to try it. 
  • Nice little cafe and looked like an interesting museum. We arrived and immediately fed a hungry baby before turning our attention to the museum tour, only to be told we'd missed the tour and would have to wait 40+ mins for the next, which travelling with small people in tow, didn't suit us, so we left! Not a major criticism- but we would've liked to have to seen tour times publicised when we arrived so that we could have planned our feeding/arriving/touring times accordingly.
  • It's a nest little shop that does have really good cafe food including a selection of cakes. Didn't have time to see the museum but the price was high.
  • It's not only store or cafe. For us, the main attraction was museum. You can learn all about sheep and wool there and try some of the tools yourself. We were guided by really nice young lady, who showed us how everything works.
  • Leenane is a lovely village on the edge of Galway start of Mayo and the Sheep & Wool Center has a nice gift shop and tea rooms this is a family run business
  • Lovely Gluten Free soup with bread and cake
