About a kilometre from Partry on the road to Westport, you'll see The Blue Teapot signposted on the left turnoff for Tourmakeady.
This will lead you to Derrymore Farm farm (known locally as The Blue Teapot) where the Dutch owners, Vincent and Manita van Dulmen, serve wonderful homemade breads, scones, tarts and so on in their little daytime café and sell their own products such as cheese and honey.
They're open every day in summer but occasionally have to take a day off - in which case they put a notice on the gate saying when they will re-open.
It's a gem for walkers, and fun for visitors to find.
Open 10.30-6 daily in summer.
