The Secret Garden

The Secret Garden is a family-owned tea shop and cafe offering more than 100 types of tea from around the world, plus coffee and scrumptious homemade cakes and pastries.


Galway's cosy cafés offer refuge from the unpredictable weather of the Wild Atlantic. Enjoy traditional Irish homemade cakes, baked goods, and midday treats such as warm fluffy brown scones, jam-laden soda bread, Irish fruit cake, and open crab sandwiches. For a taste of authentic Irish cuisine, try the boxty — a savoury potato pancake that has been a staple of Irish cuisine for generations — or the soda farls, a Northern Irish quick bread made with baking soda and buttermilk that is both hearty and delicious.
