Thankfully the heatwave is still with us, it’s weather that suits an ice cream or two so with that in mind The Clare Echo’s Love Clare columnist Aoibín Garrihy selected her top five places to stop in the county for an ice-cream.
To read more from Aoibhín including the must have for new mothers, pick up a free copy of The Clare Echo available in all good shops in the county tomorrow.
Located in the heart of the Burren, Cafe Linalla in New Quay is the perfect location stop if Ice Cream is what you fancy. Using the very best dairy from their shorthorn herd, Linalla’s artisan produce is the ultimate creamy treat pre or post seaside ramble along the stunning nearby Flaggy Shore overlooking Galway Bay.
Rowantree Cafe, Ennis:
Depending on what day of the week you visit, there is always a desert surprise on the menu. However, in the Sunny weather the most favorable dessert has got to be the Berry Eton Mess with Toasted almonds and crème de chassis jelly. De-lish!!
Pipers Chair, Doolin:
Now home to Clare’s newest artisan addition, The Pipers Chair, Doolin is a must. Now serving up tubs and cones of Bó & Bainne’s unique range of Ice Cream flavors, the trouble is deciding which one! My personal favorite has got to be the Dooliner Brown Bread…trust me, it’s a little taste of heaven!
If a good old 99 is your thing with all the bells and whistles, look no further than O’Connors Ice Cream, Ennistymon. Its pink shop front lures you in and its cones will have you leave smiling. This little commuter town on route to the coast is perfectly situated to tend to your every ice cream need on route to or from the beach!
No. Forty One, Ennis:
Introducing Clare’s newest Dinner and Brunch offering, No. Forty One and what a welcome addition to Ennis town! While there is plenty on offer for the clean eater, the Ice Cream Sundaes and Knickerbockerglories were what caught my eye from the start! Call in just to experience the fabulous decor alone.
