A Popular Meeting Place for Lunch or Tea in Kilkenny City

Very much the epitome of Kilkenny living and relaxation, the Castle Lounge has gained a reputation as being the meeting place for excellent food and service. Enjoy barista coffees, one of our fine teas with homemade cake, or a scone or something from our Bakery Corner perhaps? The Castle Lounge offers an all day menu with Morning options like Breakfast Brioche Bun or French Toast or something at Lunchtime like soup and brown soda bread, a wrap or a Cobb salad and for that special treat, Afternoon Tea is the perfect choice.

Sit back, relax in this restful, light-filled space with its deep-seated armchairs and sofas.
