I visited the Fig Tree this week with my 2 daughters. We are all coeliac and I'm dairy intolerant also. When we asked what was gluten free we were blown away by the selection from soup, sandwiches, wraps, bagels, scones, burger buns and delicious choc brownies. We had the BLT and brought home some scones and brownies. Everything was delicious... More

We had a nice lunch here. We really loved the mint and apple tea. Although they did not sell the tea leaves, the very nice staff offered us a small box of it for just a Euro. They would not accept any more money! Will definitely return. Highly recommended.

Great location and nice inside. The service however needs to up its game. Visited for mid morning coffee, the person with me ask for a coffee and a muffin. No muffins, fair enough maybe a Danish, no Danish. Any kind of sweet bun but not a scone. Was told no, they are not cooked yet. It was 11:30 in the... More

We had the best breakfast of our entire Ireland vacation, right here at The Fig Tree Restaurant! My husband still raves about our meal here - he had the grilled ham, eggs and toast and I had the Full Irish breakfast - every aspect of our meal was delightful from the quaint venue and seating to the service to the...

We were excited by the menu and looking forward to a delicious meal. The burger was lovely but came with frozen chips which we were surprised by. €14.50 was too expensuve for what was a tasty burger & cheap chips.

We popped in for a quick lunch. Nice little cafe. Very quick service and helpful staff but the chicken club paying just lacked some exitement. It was a bit bland. Chips were nice though. Would need to go back and sample something else to make sure. Worth it just for the quick service if you're in a hurry

We were a party of 7 looking for cheerful lunch suitable for fussy children and discerning adults. This restaurant looked good from the outside. When we went in we were directed to the third floor. Athletic waiters put two tables together for us. Everyone found something on the menu to suite their palette. Service was good. Waiters were very athletic.... More

The Fig Tree Restaurant is built around an ethos of freshly prepared food sourced from local, Irish ingredients, in a relaxed casual dining setting. All of our food is prepared in our kitchen from scratch from our local minced beef for our burgers to our hand crafted cakes and pastries using the finest grains from the local granary. Our coffee is ethically sourced and selected and roasted to our own requirements, offering you the perfect cup every time. To compliment our dishes we also serve O' Hara's Irish Craft Beers and house red and white wine.

We place particular emphasis on our service and friendly customer relations, ensuring every guest enjoys their visit. For those with celiac dietary requirements, we provide a range of gluten free options, both savoury and sweet.

Our promise is fresh, hand prepared food in a comfortable setting.

Looking forward to your visit.


Chef Prop. Thomas Clarke.
