As wonderful as the last time

The scones were - if that´s even possible - even better than last time! and the coffee was top notch, I like a really good coffee and I was not disappointed. We initially stopped for a snack but after a while - tempted by what the other customers were ordering- I got the crab salad and it was... read more

We stopped here on a cycle from Graiguenamanagh for lunch. You couldn't wish to find a better location on the river, just beautiful. The food was good quality, a little pricy perhaps but not ridicukous. Slow service, but we did visit on a sunny spring day when lots of others had the same idea!

Do some walking around this lovely area there is a useful little booklet which gives a range of walks for all abilities and then tuck into some... More

Started and ended our day out at St. Mullins with something to eat at the Mullichain. Had delightful coffee and scones outdoors mid morning before setting off on the delightful walk by the River Barrow as far as Graiguenamanagh where we had lunch. Following the return walk we had more refreshments by the bank of the river. A must if... More

One of my absolute favorite days out is a trip down to St. Mullins. The town itself is lovely but when you make it down to the river, the best surprise of all awaits – Mullichain Café. I give it five stars on all counts ..the food is delicious – my favorite dish so far is the crab and shrimp... More
