We arrived in Kilkenny and were looking for a light snack and a Guinness! Kyteler's Inn was perfect. Historic, fun and the food was great. We had the mushrooms stuffed with cheese and the pate and it was a perfect snack.

A large pub providing food, drink and "Authentic Orish" music for tourists. Faith and Begorrah... The only place in Kilkenny that we met with rudeness. Fortunately the town has plenty of other watering holes and eateries.

I agree. We went on a Saturday night in March and had no problem. However, during the summer months it may be very crowded.

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
