Strolling around Ennis we happened across this bakery. It's so pretty from the outside it makes you want to go in. We were having dinner later so only bought two cakes. Rhubarb and Custard Slices.

This is a great bakery with a large selection of breads and cakes and pastries. They do great coffee and have a small sit in area. They have a small deli and offer freshly made rolls and sandwiches. Love to call here for my early morning coffee and scones.

We stopped here for some tea and cake and loved the place. There are some humorous signs on the wall, the cake was absolutely amazing ... it was an absolute revelation! Anyone who visits Ennis must give this place a quick stop whilst they travel the many narrow lanes and back-streets in the lovely town.

The one room has a serving counter display counter and seating counter with the kitchen behind. Popular with secondary school kids for lunchtime specials. Fed my daughter very well!

Carrie's in a great spot in Ennis and one of the best bakeries in the country. They make the most beautiful scones I've ever had and the place is awash with sweet things...If I was being very picky, some of the buns we got there were too sweet but you don't go to a place like this to lose weight...

My review wouldn't save due to technical difficulties. Please see photo of review instead. In brief: My pain au chocolate was burnt on the bottom. Rendering it unedible. The chocolate chip cookie wasn't very chocolatey. Disappointed but haven't given up on the place yet.

We sought out Carrie's Cakes after reading other reviews with a mind to getting some sweet pastry. They also make fresh sandwiches, so we ended up having sandwiches sitting at the tiny bar and then bought one of their wonderful pastries to go.
