Description: Medieaval building in the heart of Kilkenny dating back to 1324. Once home to Dame Alice Kyteler tried for witchcraft. Kytelers Inn is NOT a restaurant but a Pub - which is our main business. Yes we also serve bar food.There are three floors with four bars - cheek them all out for the one that suits.On offer at peak season twice nightly from 6.30pm. is a programme of trad music,balladeer, irish dancers & seanachie. You can watch & eat & drink at your leisure.Weekends and Bank holidays we also have Late Bar extensions with bands & DJ for those that want to party a bit later into the night.As it was in Alice Kyteler's day - Kyteler's Inn is a place for "merrie making" - Come and visit us to find out more..Also check us out - Trip Advisor Bars/Nightlife

“Could sit there forever”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

We stopped for drinks late one on our last night in Kilkenny - wish we found it earlier. Was a great place to sip a pint and listen to music. One of our most memorable pubs in Ireland.

“Great tourist place”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

This restaurant is more like a destination. The decor and folk lore are worth a visit. The food was good also. I had the fish and chips and hubby had the mixed grill plate. We shared a slice of Irish Cream Cheesecake....yum! Great place for lunch or dinner!

Reviewed 5 February 2014

Stopped in for lunch during a brief visit to Kilkenny. Had a lovely late lunch albeit quiet in midweek January. The pub area is charming and inviting. Service was good. Would recommend to anyone.
