Enjoy the natural food of the Watergarden Café on Ladywell Street in Thomastown, County Kilkenny where light lunches, salads, soups and home baked cakes are served in a relaxed and peaceful environment.

The Watergarden operates a café in a lovely relaxed setting with seating areas both indoors and outdoors. The ethos of the Cafe is based on using organic and local ingredients where possible.

Situated on Ladywell Street in Thomastown, County Kilkenny, the Watergarden was established by the Camphill Communities of Ireland in 1993.

Stroll through the beautiful walled and stream side gardens, visit the kitchen garden which supplies the café with many of its ingredients, and then browse the garden shop and art gallery.

The Watergarden is a non-residential initiative for adults with special needs, where the different facilities, coffee shop, garden centre, formal water garden, art gallery and pottery provide many diverse employment challenges, meaningful work and opportunities. The beautiful garden offers a therapeutic backdrop to the workplace of The Watergarden and gives everyone an experience of the changing seasons.
