The Burren is a picturesque landscape by any standards, so what if we told you that nestled at its foothills, hugging the Clare Coast is some of the most unbelievably delicious Ice Cream you are ever to taste. This little Ice Cream shop is a quaint little parlour, with outside seating or indoor seating where you can enjoy a scoop of Linnalla's finest.
Established in 2006, this Ice Cream haven came about as a way of using more of the fresh milk and cream that the Fahey Family were producing from their forty eight strong herd of Freisians and shorthorn cattle. These cattle are the secret to the flavour, producing the richest cream. The flavour captures the essence of the burren and comes from the diet these happy cows graze on. The unique grazing pasture of flora, fauna and sea misted grass, makes ice cream that you won't forget in a hurry.
The Faheys did their research across England and Italy, before opening up their ice crea shop. It's truly a family run affair with Bríd taking pride of place as the ice cream maker. She whips together delicious scoops by making the ice cream in small batches and then adding (as much as possible) seasonal fruit and flavourings. She toasts nusts, makes her own berry compotes, and cooks apples down in season, to give this ice cream it's fresh and truly Irish flavour.
There is no better place to savour Linnalla ice cream than right here, where it originates. Dig in to a creamy treat, as you look out over the coastline and let yourself completely unwind.
