Two Fantastic Cafes in Boyle

I love Boyle in Co. Roscommon, there are a good variety of shops and services and the people are really friendly. I have to tell you about two wonderful cafes there.

The Bazaar Milkshake

The Bazaar Coffee Shop is a family run business where you are guaranteed the warmest of welcomes. You can enjoy wonderful lunches, scones, cakes, and drinks. I love their milkshakes in particular and I had a fantastic vegan Indian treat box there recently. They have a gorgeous courtyard which makes outdoor dining a pleasure. They cater for vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters. Find them on Facebook:

The Bazaar – Chocolate Cake
Plant based pulled ‘pork’ bap – Lovage at the Gate Lodge

Lovage at the Gate Lodge is a new cafe/bistro in Boyle. It overlooks the river so it’s lovely for dining outside. They have a wide range of dishes on their menu, I tried the plant based pulled ‘pork’ bap, which was really nice. You can find them on Facebook here:

I also have to mention a few shops. Firstly Soul 2 Soul, this is a gorgeous shop, full of angels, crystals, incense and more. They also offer a range of holistic treatments and therapies.

John Sirr

John Sirr Antique Shop is a treasure trove of a shop, brim full of all kinds of everything and so worth a visit. You never know what you’ll find.

Mary – The Book Lady

Boyle is also home to Ireland’s Smallest Bookstore – The Book Lady. I wrote a longer post about this lovely shop a couple of years ago:

Boyle Craft Shop have lovely locally made gifts and crafts. Another shop that you could lose yourself in, and a place to find the perfect gift.

So there’s a very brief post about Boyle, it’s a lovely town that’s well worth a visit. Be sure to check out the Courtyard Market on Saturdays too.
