This place is a good quick stop if you want a sandwich or a piece of cake, a nice lemonade or coffee. The prices are OK, the service quick and pleasant. You can sit indoors or out on the terrace.

The food all looked amazing, but we only had the homemade lemonade to go. - you get a discount with your castle entry receipt so make sure to keep and present that!

Had a great lunch here, enough to bring back my appetite after a 3am start that morning! Toilets are quite a long way from the restaurant, you end up going through the Castle ticket office to get to them

This is a great place to stop for tea and cake. There is an authentic charm to the place and the cake is delicious! It is very reasonably priced even though it is near dublin castle and in the center of the city of dublin....I would return if I was in the area for sure, it was quiet and not too busy.More

We enjoyed a coffee on the terrace after a tour of the castle and then a lunch after visiting the Library and Art Exhibition at the Coach House. Overlooking the gardens it’s a peaceful relaxing spot.More

Situated inside the Dublin Castle area (you can access it even if you are not visiting the castle), it offers a great terrace seating where you can sip on coffee and relax in the sun. The selection of cakes and coffees is good. Quality and...quantity is worth the price. Best thing was they offer water, flavored with lemon, free of cost to all who walk in :) Do visit if you are around.More

This cafe is located in Dublin Castle overlooking the knot garden. It is an excellent place to drop into after a tour of the castle. It has excellent food- I really enjoyed the Ploughmans lunch. The decor is nice- high ceilings, modern furniture- overlooking the...gardens. Two small complaints.... There was a cold breeze coming in through the door to the outdoor terrace and Chester Beatty museum. Visitors came in through the door every two minutes, but did not close the door after them. Not a lot of people seem to know that the Terrace cafe exists - so there were not enough people there , giving it a lonely atmosphere. Staff were great.More
