Divine food

We were incredibly lucky on the day that we ended up at Cafe Hans for lunch. We'd struggled to find a place in the Rock of Cashel car park, then found one right outside the attraction on the street (at a quarter of the price). We were hungry and just wanted a bite of lunch, so we stopped at the... read more

Best Lunch I've had in a long time. Have visited twice this summer both times very happy. The special lunch is great value.I tried a homemade lamb burger first time and had the coronation chicken on second visit. All of our group were so pleased. The staff were really lovely, friendly and welcoming. I can't wait to go back next... More

Good reviews so we got there early for lunch which was wise. Filled up very quickly and this time all the other reviews were entirely correct, Hans is very good indeed!

Excellent café with a royal menu. Open until 5.30 pm. The food is simply EXC-EL-LENT! 5 * and even more! Staff smiling and efficient. A great surprise for a 1st time. We were 5 French people. We will go back, no doubt. Thank you very much.

Cafe Hans has a good reputation and I looked forward to a good dining experience. When we arrived, at 13.00, the restaurant was full, We sat in the waiting area until a table became free. This area, beside the toilets, was small and with 8-10 people waiting, it was a bit inconvenient for others, if they needed to spend a... More

Visited cafe hans after great reviews on trip advisor. After a throughly enjoyable trip to the Rock of Cashel we arrived to a packed cafe hans at about 4pm. Following a ten minute wait we were seated and enjoyed a great pulled pork sandwich and gorgeous coronation chicken, following by beautiful raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake. Great choice of restaurant... More

We visited the Rock of Cashel on a Monday and were disappointed to find Cafe Hans closed, so we planned to make a special visit back to Cashel just to have lunch at the cafe and we were not disappointed! The service, atmosphere and especially the food were all top-notch. We were greeting warmly and were accommodated in our request... More

Great food and great atmosphere. This was one of the best restaurants we visited on our trip to Ireland. I highly recommend it. We had the lamb and fish dishes, and both were delicious.
