We stopped in for a late lunch. The service was quick, friendly and responsive and the food was delicious, particularly the warm goat cheese salad. My only regret is not getting there sooner before they sold out of the banoffee pie. It looked so good in the pictures! Oh well... You snooze, you lose. Maybe next time!

We wanted a light bite and The Hungry Monk was ideal with an excellent freshly made BLT on a genuine Waterford blaa. Good,friendly and efficient service and reasonably priced.

Saw the great reviews on trip advisor and then also had a recommendation from our Falconry guide at Ashford Castle. So glad we went to Hungry Monk. Had the goat cheese salad which was delicious and very filing. What made it even better was the staff’s interaction with the customers. So friendly and welcoming.

If this cafe had been open when the Abbey was operating the monks would have eaten here! The food and pastries are wonderful, the staff is excellent. Not just a “tourist” stop, locals eat here too. We’ve had delightful conversations with folks from County Mayo and County Galway here. If you are in Cong for any length of time treat yourself to this delightful cafe.
