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

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Live Music from 18,30 with a traditional irish performance, perfect Guinnes and nice food. If you mix all of these with the atmosphere you can breath inside this pub, you'll realize you are in one of the best place in Ireland.

“Ireland 2014”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

The food was to die for. Always piping hot and very tasty. They also had local entertainment that was very informative. They played music and told stories of the area. Very good!!!

“Go for the music and the atmosphere”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

The food was fine, but what we really went for was a Shandy and the music - and it did not disappoint! The atmosphere was great (a terrific story about the inn's origins written on the menu), the service was wonderful. It was an very enjoyable evening. Definitely worth a visit when you're in Kilkenny!

“Great Irish Pub”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We went to this restaurant/pub for a late dinner on a Sunday night. The food was great. I had the vol a vent which the waitress recommended and it tasted great. My husband had the Irish stew and thought the flavor was better than other stews he tasted on our trip. The atmosphere was exactly what we thought an Irish pub should look like- dark wood and lots of stone. We ate in the bar area. It did get very crowded and we had to leave about 9:30 because our 8 year old daughter was with us. The music had recently started and sounded great for the short time we were able to enjoy it. Would not recommend bringing younger children here late in the evening due to the rowdy crowd, but would definitely recommended this place for a fun pub experience in Ireland!

“Dull food but Irish Music and dancing”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Decoration is nice and gives you the impression you would expect of a place with a Irish music. The food here is dull and somewhat overpriced. The entertainment was okay. Have heard/seen better and without a microphone it's difficult for the musicians with all the noise in the large room. The dancers did not seem very experienced, but if you have not seen Irish dancing before, this is an opportunity you should consider. I would, however, have dinner at another place and stick to ordering something small. Also, I would consider going all the way and attending an Irish dinnershow instead, as you get a far more professional show.
