Description: The idea behind cafehome is to showcase a number of various store concepts under the one brand, with each individual concept retaining its own individual ethos and style.The first of these concepts is Hook & Ladder, where we’ve created a unique atmosphere with expertly trained staff, showcasing a broad range of Irish artisan foods, plus a range of furniture and accessories. One truly unique aspect to Hook & Ladder is that all the café fittings – from the cutlery & crockery, to the seats you sit on – are available for purchase.

Hook and Ladder is such a unique place. I absolutely loved it ! It makes a welcome change from the same old cafés. The coffee is to die for and I bought some beautifully made cream cakes. I felt like it was more like an outing in itself to visit hook and ladder their selection of really cute vintage kitchen... More

Cannot recommend this place highly enough! It is such a unique concept! I really enjoyed the food particularly the desserts - they are amazing! I was pleasantly surprised to find out they also run cooking classes and demonstrations that are available for group bookings. Great idea for parties! This is so much more than a cafe - I would recommend... More

Had a salad for 8.50 and it was very bland and unimaginative with no dressing...no different to something you'd make at home! The coffee was great tho and the staff very extremely friendly and welcoming! Some of the deserts looked amazing although I didn't have any!

I have visited Hook & Ladder a number of times and always been impressed by the friendliness and efficiency of the staff and the quality of the food on offer. I was so impressed by the furniture that i bought one of the small circular tables.

Free car parking is another Hugh bonus.

I travelled throughout Ireland and was excited to find this charming establishment, I was in Ireland on a family vacation from the US and we wanted to experience some good Irish food and hospitality. We dined in many wonderful restaurants and coffee shops but Hook and Ladder was the one we all agreed on as being our favorite. The food,... More
