Autumn is upon us. Soon the leaves will start changing colour and the weather will get that bit colder. Is this the time for Pumpkin spiced lattes and staying inside with the heat on? Yes. Does this mean you have to stop eating delicious ice cream, milkshakes and crepes? Absolutely not. Here are some places to do just that.
Shake Milkshake Bar
Do you like kinder buenos, refreshers or fudge? What if I told you that now you can have them in a milkshake? It would take a very long time to try every item on Shake’s menu which boasts ‘a wide range of delicious and unusual ingredients’ but every time you go you’ll have a world of choice. They even have biscuit shakes and fruit smoothies. As my personal favourite on this list, I can’t recommend it enough.
If you’re up the Eyre Square end of shop street, you’ll often smell the crepes being made in Gino’s. Their portions are generous and they have some truly high quality ice cream that’s packed with flavour. From Belgian chocolate to ‘Kinda Bueno’ and Nutella to Pomegranate or even a warm crepe with your ice cream, Ginos is the place to go. Next time you’re wandering around Galway’s shops, why not stop into Gino’s?
Murphy’s Ice cream
Not only is Murphy’s Ice cream delicious, it’s handmade in Dingle and has no colourings, flavourings or powdered milk. They even get their own sea salt from Dingle sea water. Murphy’s hits all the classic flavours you’d expect as well as exciting flavours like coffee bean, brown bread and Dingle gin and peppercorn. If those flavours don’t get you interested in Murphy’s, I don’t know what will.
The Creamery Cafe
Located on the Salthill prom, this cafe is the perfect place to grab a burger or some buffalo wings by the beach and if you still have room afterwards, the Creamery has ice cream, crepes with fresh fruit, Nutella and barista coffee! If you’re planning a day out to Salthill, a visit to the Creamery wouldn’t be a bad idea.
The real trick to Scrumdiddlys isn’t in the ice cream itself (though it’s pretty good) it’s in the toppings. Scrumdiddlys have a wide range of deserts with delicious toppings. Scrumdiddlys boasts over 7,000 combinations with their ‘Scrummy tubs’ so go and make your own! One example of their deserts is whipped ice cream, crushed Oreo, marshmallows, melted Cadburys sauce, chocolate scoop ice cream and rocky road.
