“Oasis of Tranquility”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

The Room Chapter House Tea Rooms off James Street and beside Saint Mary's Cathedral in Kilkenny is an oasis of tranquility serving heart warming food in a calm and relaxing atmosphere. There is ample car-parking and has wheelchair access. Its a great place to meet up with family and friends or have a cup of coffee over a business meeting. The food is homemade and the staff are professional, friendly and customer focused. You should try their delicious lemon cake

“Lovely little gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

This is a lovely little restaurant. Although there isn't a huge choice of menu, the food is delicious, plentiful and very nicely presented. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The setting is beautiful and the little courtyard charming. I think it says a lot when the locals eat here regularly! I would definitely recommend a visit to the chapter rooms!

“Gorgeous setting and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

This little cafe is worth seeking out for a spot of lunch on the grounds of st Mary's cathedral. It's really warm and inviting with lovely windows and arched doorway. There's seating outside also for when the sun is shining surrounded by the cathedral.

The menu has lots of choice and there's a specials board too - great for me, I'm a veggie but also for the carnivore hubby. I had the nut loaf and he had seafood chowder and a beef lasagne. Really tasty and looked great. Yummy desserts too. Chocolate biscuit cake and real homemade apple tart.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
Reasonable prices for great food.
Would def go back for lunch or just a coffee. Lovely spot to meet for a chat with friends.
No complaints here, nom nom nom.

“our visit to kilkenny”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

The chapter house is hidden away and should be the highlight of anyones visit to this historical city. We were seeing the sights and happen to find the chapter house. In the quaint surroundings of the Cathedral, we entered and went down a winding staircase to find a very beautiful restaurant serving fresh food, very tasty, reasonable, and service with a smile. We sat and felt we had been transported to different world. We left feeling relaxed, enjoyed the great food and wished we could visit more often. A must if you are around for locals and tourists alike.
