Popped in to this cafe after visiting Kilkenny Castle. Cafe was bustling, but managed to grab a table. Liked the kitchen artefacts (aga, copper pans on walls etc.) as reminded one of it’s ‘stately home kitchen’ history. Friendly service, good coffee - and HIGHLY impressive...More

The outdoor cafe here is just lovely. Helpful, friendly staff and great coffee. Big umbrellas for the rainy days and a great view of the stunning castle and its grounds.

the worst eating experience in Ireland. the kitchens were a joy BUT..... the poor waitress was running the place single handed. she was polite and coped admirably with demand. However, the overpriced snacks were not to the standard we have come to expect in Ireland....More
