Very friendly staff. Couple of lads singing were excellent. As 2 mature females out this bar was great. No young people too drunk or rowdy.

This is a really traditional pub with a great atmosphere. Always busy at night. Good mix always of regular customers and visitors. Certainly worth a visit when in Kilkenny.
