Had a lovely snack served by friendly staff in a delightful location. I am gluten intolerance and I found the staff very knowledgable and helpful - most unusual this! Take your time to relax and enjoy the atmosphere. Not easy to find but worth looking for - follow signs to the Barrow Quay. Excellent wifi, highly recommend you visit.

Wonderful spot for a snack and coffee or craft beer after a long walk (or drive) from Graiguenamanagh or further afield. Desserts are nummy.

I have visited the Mullichain Cafe on a number of visits over the past four years and have never been disappointed! The first time I visited was to survey the area for a visit by boat from the New Ross side. On asking a few questions about tides etc we were given a details on all the tidal nature of... More

The cafe is beside the river Barrow with lots of outdoor seating. We enjoyed soup, coffee and cakes by the river after walking along the river from Graiguenamanagh (about 8 km). The cafe is in an old mill - most seating is outside.

A group of walkers stopped her for a break in the middle of their long walk. The location is a bit out of the way but it is well worth the journey as it is in an attractive setting on the River Barrow near the old Odlums flour mills. The building was once a storehouse for the cargoes which were... More

Walked from Graiguenamanagh to St. Mullins on a beautiful June day and stopped for lunch with Martin and Emer in the Mullichain Cafe. Ideal setting, great service, lovely food (and wine!) from an extensive menu - can't wait to do it again! O&J

A perfect location right on the River Barrow with chairs and tables outside for the good weather and rustic chairs and tables indoors for those other days. Not very spacious, and uniquely decorated with old hurleys and ironmongery, it was nonetheless comfortable. Close to watersports and fishing facilities - next to them in fact - and right under the historic... More

Stopped for lunch after walking from Graignamanagh along the towpath by the Barrow river. The cafe is in a lovely spot on the river. There is a wide menu, including wine and beer. The food was very tasty. The service was friendly and efficient. The premises are spotlessly clean. There is a ruin of an old monastery nearby as well... More

Having spent a lovely afternoon yesterday walking from St. Mullins to Graiguenamanagh we returned to have our picnic in St. Mullins. I went into the Cafe and asked for a pot of tea for two and a dessert and was charged €8.80. When I queried the price I was told that a pot of tea for one was €2.40 so... More

Our Home made cakes are €4.20 .We would be very happy to make ammends should... More
