Job Opportunities At Blackwater

Welcome to Blackwater

Who we are (cafe)

We are a wild, foraged, homemade & real food café & gardening business, based on a Bronze Age site, just off the N25, half way between Cork & Waterford, on Ireland’s Ancient East. Our café currently has 22 covers which we plan to increase.

We are passionate about the origin of our ingredients. We use primarily seasonal foods, only organic flours, and have developed close working relationships with local producers. We have recently joined forces with a local therapeutic horticulture initiative to grow salad leaves & edible flowers (chemical free) on our site here at Blackwater. We have a short, quality menu, that we change regularly. We are known for the quality of our cakes & coffee. For 2018, we have committed to reducing our single use plastic consumption by 70%, to moving to raw organic milk & have recently signed up to The Food Waste Charter for Ireland. We prioritise staff welfare, aim to ensure a healthy work/life balance & close in January for staff travel/time out. We are in the process of upgrading our business identity & branding.
