Kilcornan is a truely special place. The Brothers of Charity owned estate, which is located in the village of Clarinbridge, was for many years home to nearly 150 people with various forms of intellectual disability. However many parts of the facility now lie dormant due to the development of a community based strategy, which means service users have moved out to live in local villages and towns and are integrated into community life. This is now seen as best practice and it has meant a number of the buildings and facilities in Kilcornan are available for potential use by community groups and businesses.

Poppy Seed coffee house and restaurant opened in the heart of Clarinbridge in 2007.

With one wall opened into a Meadows & Byrne store, Poppy Seed provides a welcome break from the hard work of homemaking with its excellent homebaking, just the ticket to break up a busy day. Open seven days a week and with freshly baked breads and other treats every morning, Poppy Seed offers a good menu for breakfast including an array of its speciality handmade pastries and premium coffee. Lunch choices are both healthy and hearty with chicken pâté with brioche and plum compote, Galway Bay seafood crumble with salad and brown bread, gourmet sandwiches and salads, quiches, and quesadillas all on offer. In addition to all this fine fare, the retail space offers wines, handmade Irish chocolates and biscuits, plus an array of preserves, chutneys, and savoury treats. If you need a gift or a hamper Poppy Seed will make it up for you and wrap it prettily to boot.
