Take a break!
If you wish to take a break, then The Cottage Cafe and Tea Rooms is worth a visit. It is situated the tiny village of Loughmore, Co Tipperary, between the towns of Thurles and Roscrea. It is a community owned and operated cooperative , selling local produce, arts & crafts – including home made breads, cakes & confectionery, jams, conserves, honey, locally grown vegetables and basic groceries, sweets and ices, plus sundry items. The tearooms provide a warm and welcoming haven for every customer, where you can sit, chat & enjoy wholesome, nutritious food, most of it sourced locally. The Cottage Market in the garden on the first Sunday of every month from 12.00am to 3pm.
The cooperative venture was initiated due to the lack of a shop in the village and is the brainchild of two local women, Mary Fogarty and Meave O’Hehir, who shared a passion for their community and the need to provide a local service to counter rural isolation and help maintain a ‘sense of place’ locally The Cottage Cafe has won numerous awards and commendations in 2014 it was awarded Best Cafe in the Country by the Irish Times Newspaper.
Well worth a detour if you are travelling to Fuchsia Lane Farm from the Dublin, Kilkenny, or Cork side of the country! If you are staying with us then include it on your trip to Roscrea, The Devils Bit, Holycross or The Rock of Cashel
