Welcome to Higgs Field, where we offer a fresh and exciting approach to vegetarian cuisine, with a contemporary Irish menu that changes with the seasons. Using locally farmed and foraged ingredients, we create beautiful and innovative dishes, while supporting sustainable farm to table practices.


We believe that every meal should be an experience that's positively charged.

Just like the Higgs field, which gives particles mass and helps create the building blocks of the universe, our vegetarian cuisine is fundamental to everything we do. 

Our last day of Higgs field service at St. Kieran’s Street will be Sunday, August 27.  

Conor and his partner are awaiting the arrival of a new member to their growing family. In light of this, we've made the difficult decision of closing the doors of Higgs field for a few months. While this closure comes with a mix of emotions, hopefully it will allow us the opportunity to recharge, refocus and return with even greater passion and creativity.


We are immensely grateful for your support and patronage of Higgs Field and we’ll be sure to keep you updated on future re-opening plans. We’ve been delighted by your response and enthusiasm for local, sustainable, farm-to-table vegetarian dining here in Kilkenny. We are also grateful for owners, Rory and Laura Gannon, and Cakeface, who championed our launch.


In the meantime, send us an email to inquire about private catering or pop-up collaborations:
