Louise Clark's eclectic little café specializes in simple, delicious food with nothing to hide and everything to love. For a pre-mountain-walk breakfast, fortify yourself with the Ballinamult free-range baked egg and marmite soldiers. When you come back down the mountain, try the traditional Irish stew with pearl barley, lamb, carrots, and homemade soda bread, or the ploughman's platter with honey-glazed ham, farmhouse cheese, and house-made pickles, preserves, and griddled
sourdough bread. In fact, you might want to skip the mountain altogether so you can stay for the delightful almond tart with clotted cream. Nude has a lovely bakery and deli next door (so you can take a packed lunch to the mountain tomorrow).
