Our guide recommend us this nice place to take a lunch. Stuff was quick, steak was as I asked (medium rare). Surrounding is very nice and friendly.

A very real attempt to be authentic, but perhaps a bit overdone. This is, perhaps, the most visited and certainly the most historic inn in Kilkenny. You can’t not participate in the live music and entertainment. In other words, it’s impossible not to have a...More

What a fabulous bar. Great staff, great food & fabulous atmosphere. We had the Irish Stew which was fabulous. The live music was excellent. The staff were very accommodating with my boy. I will always come back here when I’m Kilkenny. It’s a fabulous experience.
