The Green Barn Shop & Restaurant
Ranked #6 of 18 Restaurants in Athy
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $3 - $35
Description: The Green Barn combines large open spaces with high ceilings and expansive wall spaces, with movable panelled partitions to create that more intimate perfect space for any size of group. This all opens out onto an exterior terrace, and again into a series of courtyard spaces that each tell a different story and create a different ambience. There are areas reserved for parents with children and areas that are reserved for guests who would like to dine with the more relaxing sound of our surrounding wildlife and old world jazz music. The Green Barn is based on old style Scandinavian barns with a New England twist, combining high ceilings, rustic textures, individual tables settings. We serve only the freshest possible seasonal produce that has almost always come straight from our organic kitchen garden that very morning. We believe in serving what we like to eat, honest, unfussy, unpretentious food, letting our produce be the strength in what you eat.

Passing and called in for lunch. Was just opening after Christmas break. Good menu. We only had mains so food took a little long in coming.
New menu which put the staff under pressure but they coped.

Very dissatisfied with service plus the place was very cold. Was so looking forward to visiting for Sunday lunch. When we voiced our dissatisfaction to management, they weren't interested. A great pity as it is a lovely location and venue. Been there twice before only ok each time

Hello CathMPC.

I am very sorry to read your feedback ... I was the manager on duty all day. I am the owner. You never voiced your dissatisfaction to me or anyone I have since spoken to who worked yesterday in The Green Barn. We are very alarmed to hear of this review. We would very much appreciate it if you might let us know what we are missing here.
We keep a temperature gauge in our Green Barn and it was 23c yesterday.
We really would appreciate your feedback to our selves so that we can get to the bottom of what you are saying.
Thanks so much,
James,

Complete find is the immediate reaction after discovering The Green Barn. The place itself is gorgeous, decorated really tastefully giving a contemporary but relaxed look. The food served was amazing with over 90% of their all organic veg coming from their gardens attached. Make a date to visit here you won’t be disappointed as you can have a walk in the attached gardens too, enjoy

We stopped here on our road trip to Kilkenny and were blown away by this hidden gem! We ordered two Barn breakfasts that were nothing short of delicious, the staff were very friendly and the atmosphere and decor very welcoming. After breakfast we took a walk around their kitchen garden before a look at their gallery and food hall. I would highly recommend to anyone, it was the highlight of our trip!
