Only recently discovered this bar and was delighted to come upon it. Great music and atmosphere, live music on Saturday nights and a good crowd. Will be returning here on my next visit.

I've been quite a few times, with friends, family, for lunch and drinks. Really popular with locals and tourists, with a great layout including large flatscreen TVs - well positioned for sports. A great selection of drinks on tap, and all in all a very well run family establishment.

This place was recommended by a tour guide and it was great advice! We were a family of seven, and several thought it was the best meal of our Ireland trip. Definitely put this on your list for a meal if visiting Kilkenny!

I've been there several times. The food I had was good and not too expensive. The history of the place is unbeatable. You can go there for lunch and meet mostly locals (I'd guess), for dinner or visit the night club in the beer garden.

This pub was recommended to us after our Smithwicks and Castle Tours. It had good food and good service. Would have liked to be there when there was music.

It was very clear the... More

The place is nice and was very full when we came. We were shown downstairs and it seems like a cave almost so very nice atmosphere. if you wanted to, you could also walk outside to the beer garden. So the place is very nice. However I didn't like the food at all. Menu was not extensive and looked run... More

This was our first meal in Ireland other than the hotel breakfast. The staff was kind and our party of 4 all enjoyed our food.

When we arrived in Kilkenny the first pub everyone recommended us was kytlers inn. Beer selection is typical Irish and can't miss the live music played at night
