Welcome to Lock 6

Lock 6 Cafe is a wonderfully unique cosy little cottage situated along the Grand Canal – just beside the 6th Lock! The cottage is over 200 years old and its character tells a story.

Whether you’re looking for breakfast, lunch, coffee, treats, wine, parties or just a chat we have it all. Our lunch menu changes daily and we proudly serve Ariosa coffee which is roasted just down the road in Ashbourne. During the winter months Lock 6 is the perfect cosy retreat from our changeable Irish weather. Then in the summer time when the cafe really comes to life! We have two outdoor areas where you can kick back, eat, drink, relax, catch up with friends or bury your head in your phone. Thankfully they are both under cover and heated all year round.

We have friendly staff, great tunes beautiful coffee and simple fresh food. Everything is made in house daily, Lock6 is the perfect spot, whatever the occasion.

Look forward to seeing you,

The Lock 6 Team. xxx
