The Mullichain Café

Never been there? You’ll never forget it!

St Mullins on the bank of the Barrow river in the south of county Carlow is one special little spot within very easy reach of Dublin 1.5 hours. We are right in the middle of the south east 35 minutes from Wexford, Carlow, Kilkenny and Waterford. Down on the quay tucked away from all the hustle bustle of the world sits the Mullicháin café, only yards from the river. You 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, this is truly a stunning valley where the barrow walk way begins.

The Café is on two floors of the beautifully restored Old Grain store building and has tables along the side of the harbour wall. Emer is a very fine baker and has fresh scones and chocolate brownies to die for with a nice cappuccino. Just imagine a smoked salmon salad and a glass of wine under the umbrella and then a stroll up the river.

Our walks booklet gives you a variety of walks from the lazy stroll to the 4 hour walk up to the top of white mountain where you have a panoramic view over Carlow and Wexford. Martin and Mark are there to send you in the right direction or give you a bit of the local history and gossip on the Normans, Vikings and Odlums flour Mills. A great place to relax in the mists of time.
