Miss Crumpets Tea Rooms

Adare's Old Creamery and its owner, Helen Mackessy, go back a long way. It’s has been part of her family's world since it was founded as a Creamery in the early 1900's - her grandfather, Michael Hanley, was one of the founders of this co-operative creamery and her father was a milk supplier in later years.


Helen purchased it as a derelict building in the 90's, as it had been left vacant for over a decade. She was very anxious to keep the building and do something memorable in it. Gradually, the Creamery has since been refurbished and evolved into a special place and the premises itself, with its interlinking rooms, has become a kind of magic trail, with each room having a different theme changing with the seasons - part of it is a Christmas shop that has earned a reputation countrywide.


There’s a nostalgic feeling throughout and, upstsirs, Miss Crumpets Tea Rooms is a comfortable old world place with a dresser or two, white chairs, linen covered tables with fresh flowers on them, old fashioned lace nets over the sugar bowls and pastel colours here and there.


Teas and coffees and nicely baked cakes are served here - an excellent carrot cake, perhaps, and the apple tart is in class of its own - and, rather unsually, your tea is served in a pot that sits in your cup. The quality is really good and staff are very engaging, prompt and efficient, but with time enough for a chat, so Miss Crumpets is more than just a dose of nostalgia, it’s a really nice place to pop into for a refreshing cuppa.


Downstairs you’ll find sweets, fudge and locally produced ice cream in the 8,000 square foot shop, which also houses The Doll’s House Village; Mother Goose Baby Shop and a treasure trove of other gifts. Nostalgic yes, but worth a look all the same.
