Beautifuly situated on the banks of the river Barrow in St Mullin`s in Co Carlow, The Mullichain Cafe is a unique and charming dining out by the river.
The Mullichain Cafe is a tastefully restored 18th century canal storehouse which was used to store grain and all kinds of goods that were transported on the canal line from 1760.
Martin and Emer O’ Brien set about restoring the sadly derelict building in 2008 and opened The Mullichain Cafe in March 2009. Many of the original features have been retained including the Canadian pitch pine beams and the lime plaster walls.
The Cafe offers small snacks to larger meals while enjoying scenic views of the countryside. Guests can sit and watch the Heron fishing on the weir when the tide is out or watch the cruisers passing on the rising tide on their way to the sea.
The Mullichain Cafe also provide luxury self-catering accommodation in the form of three beautiful cottages surrounding the old stable yard.
This is a perfect place to stop in for a coffee or meal while you visit St Mullins. And enjoying it in an amazing and relaxing surrounding area. I highly recomended to try their delicious waffles with strowberries.
It`s open 11am-6pm 7 days a week.
