First port of call is coffee and cake in Number One Delicatessen and Cafe who serve the most scrumptious coffee and cake, I had chocolate and caramel covered shortbread - not good for the waist line but what the heck. The olives and cheese looked wonderful but I resisited the temptation.
Clare has its own ruined castle and also a monestry which are nestled just over a river and it is the most tranquil of places. What a marvelous gate this is - go through it leads to
Whilst I was there I popped into the great antique mall that is nestled down one of the back streets for a little browse - four levels of antiques and collectables and the dealers prices are good too. The staff are really nice and helpful too.
Did I get anything I hear you ask - now for those of you who know me they will know that that is a silly question - of course I did.
