Ginger & Wild Café

From Thursday March 17th we are really looking forward to welcoming you at Ginger & Wild Café.

Currently offering indoor and outdoor dining.

Opening Times 10.00-17.00 (until 16.00 for September & October)

The café at the Ballycroy Visitor Centre is called Ginger & Wild and it definitely ticks lots of boxes – whether you…


  • are a hungry traveller
  • just want a beautiful place to sit, relax and enjoy a cup of tea
  • are an art lover
  • are a large group looking for a tasty morsel

…you’ll be very well looked after.

Its light airy seating area offers a bird’s-eye view to Achill Island, the majestic Nephin Beg Mountains and the magical wild Atlantic coast.

An exceedingly warm welcome awaits you at this family run café making it a most enjoyable and enlightening place to stop.

And then last, but by no means least, the food, which is all homemade using locally-sourced produce and quality ingredients.Roasted Mediterranean Vegetable Tart

The fare is simple and fresh – teas, coffees, fruit Juices, vegetable soups, paninis, quiches, salads, scones, cakes etc – all delicious tasty goodies made by Jean-Pierre.

The icing on the cake is the contemporary art that adorns the café walls – exhibitions change continually and all work is for sale.

Have a look at our website to see what we have on display

There is seating for 40 people and so we can cater for everyone from individual travellers to full coach parties.

If you are a coach party and planning a lunch stop, it would be nice if you could let us know in advance.
