Great place to visit for a breakfast while in Dublin City centre. The food was very tasty and the service team were great. Well worth the visit.

The shop is a mixture of home goods and clothing. Upstairs is a huge cafe clearly very popular with the locals. We were there for Sunday lunch and it was packed (the jazz program was to start at 3:00). Definitely part of the local culture. If you don't care to eat at the cafe of the National Museum, this place... More

Their sales are also excellent and a great source of good quality presents! However, I recently bought something from their online shop and was very pleased with my experience. I had purchased 2 crystal glasses which were well... More

Went to the cafe twice for breakfast. Good value hot buffet with good service. Really good food and quality coffee included. Sunday had a jazz duo playing which was a bit loud (I sound old I know, but it was). Other than that, it was great and highly recommended. I didn't try the cakes or pastries but they looked great.

The Kilkenny Shop on Nassau Street, opposite the side of Trinity College, in Dublin City Centre is one of the best stops for breakfast any day, but, especially if off work and one has time to linger and early on Saturday morning when intending spending the day shopping and socialising in the City Centre. The €7.50 breakfast is made up... More
