This is THE PLACE to relax and eat by the river in the countryside. The setting is rustic and peaceful. The food is fantastic. The people are even better. It is just a few steps away from the historic St. Mullin's grounds. Best of all our entire family was able to stay in the attached dwellings (3 separate units) which... More

I visited St Mullins last week with my three children. We decided to have lunch in the cafe. Staff were mostly young girls - all very nice and friendly. The menu looked nice and the children were looking forward to a "wood fired" pizza. This term was very misleading as it was an obviously cheap commercial offering which was certainly... More

We have family in the St Mullins area, and went home for a family wedding, 10 of us stayed here for the week and had the time of our life. The setting can only be described... More

Ventured to St Mullin on a Sunday spin with hubby and wow were we glad we discovered St Mullin & Mullichain cafe! Utterly beautiful area, a hive of activity of a mix of leisurely diners along the river bank and outside the cafe, walkers, cyclists, people setting off on the river...We opted to sit upstairs in the cafe on lovely...

Had lunch here over the bank holiday weekend.Beautiful part of the world.. Nice service and lovely food.We didn't find it expensive as others have suggested.However, it seems that the restaurant don't have a credit card machine and only take cash.I found this a bit annoying considering its remote location and also the fact that we are becoming a cashless society...

I agree with a lot of the reviews here. Yes the staff are friendly but the food is very overpriced. I had the crab and prawn salad which consisted of an average slice of brown bread sliced in three with a small amount of crab balanced on top and three tiny prawns. This was accompanied by lots of leaves two... More
