My family and I enjoyed an early Christmas treat on Christmas Eve 2016 in Swans, Kilkenny. We all enjoyed our meals and the view of the castle is spectacular. It was a very pleasant visit and will be repeated frequently.

The food was good and fairly priced, however they will charge your card hundreds of dollars in unapproved transactions after your visit. I had 6 individual charges spread across 4 days which totaled $800+ a few days after our visit. Our original bill was under 25 Euro.

Had Szechuan chicken and sweet and sour pork. Both were amazing! Our waitress, I believe, didn't understand much English as someone was helping her. Despite that, highly recommended!
