A really quirky art gallery and cafe run by a fascinating chap, Sean Wood. Sean writes columns for local and national papers, teaches painting and paints himself, plays Irish folk music and is a pretty good cook. He probably does a lot of other things!...More

The gallery owner is very welcoming and enjoys sharing his knowledge of art, food, Irish folk music, nature and rugby. He will cook you a fantastic brunch with endless coffee, or just have a drink on its own. , and enjoy the atmosphere.

I don't honestly know, we left our dog in the car outside. It is, in part, a cafe so possibly not. If in doubt send the owner an email. Sorry.
