CRAFTY SPOT FOR CAKE
You can’t go past the fantastic coffee and cake at the familyowned Shed Cafe, nestled in the foothills of Mount Barney, five minutes from the town of Rathdowney. Open weekends from 8am to 4pm, you can also get your fix of country crafts — from soaps to jewellery to bags. The cafe is part of Rathlogan Grove, which contains 1200 fully mature olive trees. From olives to olive oils, balsamic vinegar and local honey, you can have a free tastetest of the grove’s produce at the Shed Cafe. All of this plus breathtaking mountain views.
