Locally sourced, made with love

Nestled alongside the historic walls of Kilkenny Castle, overlooking the River Nore, is where you will find Canal Square.

Offering locally roasted, specialty coffee, freshly baked pastries, and delicious breakfast and lunch items prepared in-house by our fantastic team, headed up by Head Chef Cormac Rowe, it is the perfect place for a pit stop. We offer delicious, seasonally-inspired food throughout the day, to eat in or takeaway. 

We believe that the customer always comes first – and that means exceptional produce, quality ingredients and a friendly service.  We are looking forward to seeing you soon!

Our coffee is just as important to us as our food. We have partnered with Trá Roasters based in Tramore, Co Waterford who is Ireland’s only veteran-owned coffee company. Tom started experimenting with coffee during his time spent abroad which allowed him to source high-quality beans from around the world which he is roasting today.

We serve a mix of house and specialty coffee that is carefully picked and expertly made by our baristas. Our Coffee is just as important as the food we prepare, and we are committed to ensuring high quality drinks to complement our great menu!
