Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Really enjoyed the Gallery and Castle as always, the food especially for vegan and dietary concerns for low sugar and gluten free, great choices, I love the eggs with granola and the vegan like snickers bar, the eggs were declicious and love the coffee, lovely outdoor heated pods and great events on in the cafe, check it out @wildflower cafe. I give it 4.5 stars

Will be back again soon

I love going to the exhibitions here but mainly the cafe. Olivias food is, imo, the best quality vegan food in Killkenny. It's super fresh, excellent presentation and find myself always bringing home something for later. Never disappointed. I have problems choosing , which is why I like to go as often as possible and a chance to sample everything. It's also a beautiful setting , with fab pods to sit out in any time of year and the added bonus of meeting friends and taking in an exhibition. Easy parking , and imo the best cafe in Kilkenny if you love your food fresh and varied .

Butler Gallery is an excellent place to visit and a real addition to Kilkenny. Unfortunately I cannot say the same about the cafe. We ate here last summer and it was really good. Today I visited again and had the worst toasted cheese sandwich I have ever eaten. Completely dry and tasteless, and very poorly presented after a very long wait. Go and enjoy the gallery but eat elsewhere, there are lots of places to go in Kilkenny and any of would be better than this.

So, so good. This really is a hidden gem. If you’re GF, DF, vegan or have no dietary restrictions or preferences, this place suits everyone. The menu changes up regularly, but always great - varied and absolutely delicious! It’s become a weekly go to for us, never disappoints.

A superb collection of modern art, beautifully curated and housed in an historic building, restored to the highest standards. It’s a real pleasure to see work of this standard, both the collection and the restoration of the building. Kilkenny is very fortunate to have such a powerful cultural resource in the heart of the community.
As a matter of fact, the garden and the cafeteria are both equally uplifting.
So pleased we were able to visit. We will be back.

Leisurely morning stroll through the gallery. The before & after photos of the re-build were very interesting. Cafe for brunch in a great location, great menu choices. Easy parking right out front.
