“Lovely little pub for a quiet drink”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Kilkenny is a lovely town but sometimes finding a pub for a quiet drink when you're not totally sure of the area can be a touch difficult. This pub is lovely. Lovely craft beers on tap, lovely staff, the candles on the tables were a nice touch and looked very pretty from the outside. The shopfront was what drew us to the pub in the first place and there is a gorgeous beer garden/smoking area at the back. Would highly recommend a visit.

“Old world charm”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

What a beautiful place, from the old style shop to the old style bar to the outdoor old style sitting area. It is just lovely, we sat out back in the sunshine and enjoyed our drinks and I really didn't want to leave. Had they done food we wouldn't have left!

“Quirkiest Shop Ever! Loved It!”
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.

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!
