Crawford Gallery Café

Crawford Gallery Café

Crawford Gallery Café, a venue with a difference, is located on the ground floor of Crawford Art Gallery and run by Sinead Doran. The roots of the Crawford Gallery Cafe go back to 1986 when the doors were originally opened by Mrs Myrtle Allen and her daughter Fern. That Ballymaloe ethos - taking the very best quality food and cooking it simply but beautifully - continues to underscore the cafe in its modern incarnation. 

This award-winning Café serves quality local produce and is a favourite of Corkonians and visitors alike. Whether it’s a drinks and Canape reception in a Gallery space or a sit-down meal in the Café, Sineád is available to discuss menus, costs and capacities with you at:
