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

We were staying in Graiguenamanagh for a few days in October and heard about a beautiful walk to Saint Mullins, a village up the river. We set off on Sunday morning in blazing sunshine and arrived weary two hours later to an oasis. About ten minutes past the Saint Mullins Lock is a old grain shed that houses the cafe.... More

I was in Ireland in April and had had heard great things about the cafe at St Mullins prior to going overseas. My friends and i were hospitably looked after by Martin. Beautiful setting. Lovely food. Friendly owners. Remember to take a walk along the river and up to the old cemetery.

Thus little riverside cafe is an utter delight and should not be missed if you are anywhere near Kilkenny. The food is very good, the price is reasonable and the "staff" are something else. They deserve your business

Stopped here for a coffee on a tour of the Barrow River area. The coffee was excellent and the food looked delicious. Unfortunately we had already had lunch so did not need to sample it. We found the owner very friendly and informative and the atmosphere in the cafe welcoming. Would definitely go back in time for lunch.

A real gem of a cafe in a perfect setting at the end of a lovely walk along the Barrow. Friendly service. Such an asset to the area where the walking is great but not that many stopping off points along the river.

I know it is easy to be no 1 out of 1 , but if there were another 50 cafes in the village it still would be number 1. The location is fantastic and we came on one of the hottest days of the summer. Friendly service, so if nearby then do visit, it is lovely
