Mullichain Café

“Great coffee, fantastic atmosphere and chat to beat the band” are the promise at the café in this fine restored grain house at the pretty and historic riverside village of St Mullins, where owners Martin & Emer O’Brien also offer “fresh scones with the morning coffee and a read of the paper, smoked salmon and a glass wine for the lunch”


All this and a good riverside walk in a beautiful and tranquil setting. What more could anyone ask for? Well, a cosy cottage perhaps. Luckily Martin and Emer also have some self-catering available in the restored courtyard – complete with scones and a bottle of wine awaiting guests on arrival.


Upstairs, in the Loft, you’ll find paintings by local artists and books on mythology and Irish history. St Mullins is an important archaeological site, dating back to a monastery built by St Molig in the 7th century and both the holy well and graveyard are still in use.


And the old grain store itself is living history; having formerly been used by the Grand Canal Company and then Odlums millers, it is great to see it in everyday use once more.

Open: Tue-Sun 11-6, closed Mon except bank hols (but then closes the following Tue). Winter closure Nov-Mar. abbreviations
