Legless In The Country: Village Stores (Spar), Ballyvaughan, Co. Clare

Village Stores (Spar)
Main Street, Ballyvaughan, Co. Clare

Other than the petrol station, this is Ballyvaughan’s only food shop. It closes at 8.30 most evenings so don’t forget to pick up your báinne. This Spar is a bit of a social spot and you might get to spot the local celebrity here, the fat cat (above).

What has it got?
Seating: There are picnic tables outside Spar and this is where the fat cat can normally be found.
Doors: The doors are wide and easy to open.
Ground: The ground is tiled in here so take heed when it’s wet.
Stairs: Not a step nor stair to be seen.
Bathrooms: They actually have a large bathroom around the back of this Spar which is nifty for everyone really.
Spaciousness: There is plenty of room between the aisles but some of the shelves are high.
Helpfulness of Staff: Staff are great here and if you need a hand, don’t be too shy to ask.
Parking: There is a wheelchair spot behind this Spar and there are plenty of other parking spots beside it.
Rating: 10/10
Why did it lose points? No points were lost. It’s a very easy shop to navigate.
