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.

We opted for tea & cakes following a recent castle tour and were not disappointed. The selection of cakes and sweet treats was vast and the waitress was friendly, helpful and incredibly patient with our struggle to choose! The cafe is cosy, well laid out and a perfect spot to refuel after walking the castle grounds. Next time we'll make... More

This is a nice spot for a cup of tea (and I do like a cup of tea). It was approaching 4:30 and the grounds were beginning to close for the day. The staff at the tea rooms kindly allowed us to order even though it was so close to closing. The area inside is small but cosy with many... More

Well what can I say? I came here for lunch with a couple of my girlfriends and what a lovely place! The food was second to none and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is in Kilkenny Casle so it's a fantastic place to stop for a break while doing the touristy things!

This place needs to get its act together. We waited at the entrance to the café to be shown to a table. We were completely ignored and after a few minutes left, as did a couple at a table who had obviously been waiting too long. Therefore, cant review the food. We ended up going to the café at the...

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. I ordered a panini from a very limited menu. Chicken, Brie and cranberry sounded fine... More

Called in at about 1.45 for a light lunch, the place was almost empty, with just two tables occupied, yet although they weren't under any pressure, we found it difficult to find a clean table, with almost all of the smaller tables full of uncleared food and crockery... We eventually found a table, and proceeded to place an order for... More

We spent a while visiting Kilkenny Castle and joined a tourguide showing tourists around the Castle and giving us information on the Butler family who once owned it. We had a nice meal in the Castle Restaurant. Afterwards, visited the Kilkenny Design Centre and purchased a few souvenirs to take home with us. Later, we visited the very nice shops... More
