After a long walk in the park stopped here for tea and scones. Got a window seat and a smashing view of the lake and the church. A very nice cafe with very nice staff. A large bar area. Overall a nice visit.

Lovely cafe looking out on to the most beautiful view. There’s a good selection of sandwiches and cakes and they’re good value. The cafe feels nice and cosy but there’s also a big side room so it could take a big group.

The cafe is overlooking the lake at Gougane Barra & is not in Macroom. The food here is fresh & well presented. The cake selection is mouthwatering. All this is topped by the stunning views over the lake to the mountain & the Church.

My partner and I visited Gougane Barra Church on Monday and after a lovely walk and some contemplation by the lake we decided on a spot of lunch. We headed to Cronin's right by the lake and weren't disappointed. The welcome was lovely and friendly...More

Popped in for a cake and tea midweek. I saw the teapot being warmed, so off to a good start. Barry's tea and the pure water made the drink. My companion had coffee which the waitress brought over to our table overlooking the lake. The...More
