Wonderful old and historic restaurant/pub with good food and an even better tale. Cozy atmosphere with lots of nooks and crannies. Servers were friendly and attentive. Live music several nights a week and an outdoor beer garden all add up to a good spot for everyone. A definite Kilkenny must-see.

Maybe nice for some folks, but it operates on high volume pace which unfortunately comes out in the less than quality food... More

Went here for a drink with some ladies I met at my hostel. We each had a beer or two. Turns out they do an audience involved drumming show too.

Only recently discovered this bar and was delighted to come upon it. Great music and atmosphere, live music on Saturday nights and a good crowd. Will be returning here on my next visit.

I've been quite a few times, with friends, family, for lunch and drinks. Really popular with locals and tourists, with a great layout including large flatscreen TVs - well positioned for sports. A great selection of drinks on tap, and all in all a very well run family establishment.
