Don't get me wrong. The Ice Cream is absolutely amazing! Like seriously good. So much so i'm kind of still thinking about it. It's just the price was shocking. I expect that they reared and milked the cow themselves, churned the cream, travelled themselves to Tahiti for the vanilla, trailed the amazon for the perfect cocoa beans, extracted the juice...

If you want great ice cream this is the place. Baileys flavour is my personal favourite. The doughnuts are made fresh and the ice creams are made on site.

Friendly service, the menu is different and tempting with a selection of mouth watering ice cream delights and tastes that reflect the quality of the ingredients. A must visit in Ballybunion.

After dinner our 1st night in Ballybunion, we were looking for something sweet, we found it at Sundaes. The ice cream was delicious and the mini donuts were a fun treat. We enjoyed it so much, we stopped there 3 out of 5 nights. We'll come back next year.

Thank Joe W
