Courtyard Brasserie

For all-day coffees, cakes, easy dining and Irish classics.



Easy dining, showcasing a passion for Irish produce.

Trellis (formerly Canal Café ) is open to both resident and non-resident diners.

Here, you will find a relaxed, informal style of dining in a warm, cosy space where it is easy to enjoy a snack, coffee or more substantial lunch or early dinner with friends. You will also feel comfortable sitting here alone with a good book as company.

Many of our Trellis customers walk in from the banks of the Grand Canal, or are on their way to seek out the grave of Arthur Guinness, which is located in the nearby Oughterard cemetery.

Trellis looks out onto cobbled courtyard where you can make the most of the summer sun.

This family friendly location, is open from Monday to Sunday for lite bites and lunch from 11.00am – 18:00pm and dinner 18:00pm to 22:00pm.

Last orders 21:45pm

Reservations are advisable.
