Description: The Fig Tree Restaurant is built around an ethos of freshly prepared food sourced from local, Irish ingredients, in a relaxed casual dining setting. All of our food is prepared in our kitchen from scratch from our local minced beef for our burgers to our hand crafted cakes and pastries using the finest grains from the local granary. Our coffee is ethically sourced and selected and roasted to our own requirements, offering you the perfect cup every time. To compliment our dishes we also serve O' Hara's Irish Craft Beers and house red and white wine. We place particular emphasis on our service and friendly customer relations, ensuring every guest enjoys their visit. For those with celiac dietary requirements, we provide a range of gluten free options, both savoury and sweet. Our promise is fresh, hand prepared food in a comfortable setting. Looking forward to your visit. Yours, Chef Prop. Thomas Clarke.

If you're looking for haute cuisine then look elsewhere. This is place is for those looking for a good feed and nothing else. The food is fantastic with good portion size at a great price.

We were on a day trip from Dublin and very hungry when we arrived after the lunch rush. Staff very friendly and food delivered within minutes of ordering. I had a wonderful prawn sandwich on brown full of big juicy prawns and melt in your mouth granary bread with salad garnish and very nice homemade dressing which unfortunately we couldn't buy as we were hand luggage only and limited to max 100mls. My daughter had a chicken club panini stuffed full of fresh tasty ingredients with salad and non greasy tasty chips. All washed down with a glass of white wine....well I am on my hols and a fruit smoothie for my daughter. Nice atmosphere and very clean. Would deffo visit again if visited Killkenny in the future, which I hope we will

Lovely little cafe . The restaurant was very clean. Staff were friendly and there was a nice selection of food on the menu. The all day breakfast attracted our attention and it was tasty . The smoked bacon and maple syrup was lovely too. Reasonably priced- I would go back.

At 'The Fig Tree' you can get a wholesome very tasty Full Irish Breakfast with or without gluten and a variety of lunches, scones and deserts, with or without gluten also.
The staff are very friendly and helpful and Pamela is exceptional.
The restaurant has three compact floors but with ample space between the tables. A busy lively place with a good selection of background music playing, but not loud and free WiFi.
If you have not tried 'The Fig Tree' you have not lived.
