“Quirkiest Shop Ever! Loved It!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2013

Bridie's Bar and Store sell such a mixed range of products, its vintage, retro and modern all together. Staff were lovely and very friendly. Prices were reasonable and is perfect for some stocking fillers. Easy to get to and has such a range of products.

“A JEWEL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

WOW!!! This place is amazing, a little jewel in the heart of Kilkenny, so beautiful and quaint!! Behind this little gift shop you step back in time to a wonderful bar brimming with vintage cornucopia! Wonderful staff and an exceptional beer garden!!! What a joy!

“As Irish as it gets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2013

This is one of my favourite bars in Kilkenny. When you walk through the doors from the street you are transported back in time as you enter the general store. After taking in the the quaint Irish display you walk through saloon doors to the bar. The bar has also the Irish look of yesteryear and the Guinness is excellent. The is a beer garden with covered over seating and large heaters out back.

“Me Ould Segosa!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2012

We were staying in Langton's House Hotel recently and were delighted to find a "different" little Pub next door, tucked away behind Bridie's Store. This is where you'll have a chat and a bit of craic and you can stroll down Memory Lane as far as you wish and you'll have plenty of characters to keep you company. Bridie's General Store itself is a quaint little classic piece of 'left over' - a bit of nostalgia in a fast-moving world. You might like to buy a stone hot water bottle or a 'quarter' of bulls eyes; take a decko at the ould messenger boy's bike. You'll get plenty of chat and happy banter from the barman and it'll seem as though you are an old friend, and they are delighted that you've re-appeared, even though you've never been there before! This little establishment if part of the Langton Stable and it seems that their happy and welcoming staff are omnipresent. It is an Evening place .. so go for it - smile and join the happy gang for a bit of "divarsion".
