Lovely gardens, lovely coffee. Friendly staff, they do a great work here. It's a pity they don't open at the weekend.

On every trip to Kilkenny I have to visit this place to support Camphill Trust and the work they do here. Always superb food, pleasant staff and service and the pleasure of exploring the grounds after lunch.

This is an ideal place to visit with a small group. As an educational interest it's perfect for a short visit. There is a lovely cafe and a beautiful garden with a stream running through it.
