I am glad I stopped here because the building is very interesting and historic, and my lunch here allowed me to try lamb for the first time. It was a little expensive for my student budget, but a worthwhile stop nonetheless.

One of the oldest pubs in Ireland, over 600 years old. Great stop for a pint and a wide range of menu options. A interesting mix of tourists and locals add to the fun atmosphere.

We ordered a range of menu items to share. We like almost all of them. The staff was very friendly and the ambiance was good.

We really enjoyed dinner upstairs with great live music at 6:30 (early enough for kids). Lots of character and history, and the food is very good too, especially the vol-au-vent.

The food was good, the menu pretty much standard but done well. What is interesting is the background and age of the place

We have eaten there dozens of times, Kytelers had the best fillet steak in kilkenny which was well priced. Unfortunately they no longer provide this option, the quality of the sauces and veg had also dropped.

We dropped into the Kyteler over the Easter bank holiday. We have socialised here a few times over the years and it's always lively. We had the kids with us on this occasion and we stopped off for some lunch. Fare was fairly basic pub...More

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
