The Commons Cafe
Irish producers such as The Whole Hoggs Rare Breed Pork, Sheridan’s Cheese and Glenilen feature in the menu and there are nods to Ireland’s literary history throughout. The Commons’ menu serves dishes for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea, as well as an array of baked goods, specialty coffee from Roasted Brown, home-made juices and fermented drinks, and many wines from the glass from boutique wine-shops like Celtic Whiskey and Terroirs.
The Commons is open 7 days a week, serving breakfast from 10am to 3.30pm; lunch from 11.30am to 3.30pm; and coffee, cakes and afternoon tea from 10am to 5pm every day. The Commons also hosts supper clubs and special dinners on selected dates too.
Excellent place for lunch, brunch or coffee. Very nice decor, laid back space and lovely museum/arts&crafts shop next door. Highly recommended.
A beautiful space for a casual yet delicious lunch
On the whole the food was quite good but we had a few strange occurrences. My guest who can't eat white bread asked if a slice of brown bread could be substituted for the Blaa on one of the menu items but this could not be accommodated even though we were served brown bread with the soup.
For the cheeseboard, two out of the three cheeses served were not Irish. We thought this restaurant should showcase Irish produce. We found the decor attractive overall but felt it could benefit from some soft surfaces to absorb the noise.
Wonderful food served in a stunning room! Service was great too!
