Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Staff are scum. Never forget the doormen beating young lads! Dirty bar. Doormen are disgraceful. Overall scummy- never forget leaked videos of beatings by staff.

We had read that Matt the Miller's was a place we needed to stop, and we are very happy we did. This place did not disappoint. The Beef and Guinness stew was out of this world and the fish and chips was amazing, as well....We had excellent service from the wait staff. Matt the Miller's is a must stop for anyone visiting KilkennyMore

We went to a few (...A lot) of Pubs on our trip to Ireland, and this was by far our favourite one! When we arrived there was already a two man band playing traditional Irish music- the singer had a really lovely voice, and we...ended up staying much longer than planned drinking and listening to him sing. We ordered dinner and it was delicious- spinach tortellini for me and pork ribs for my fiancee. The drinks were great too- great selection of beers and cocktails. Service was quick, and the crowd was a friendly one. Wish we had been in town longer so we could have come back again!More

Delicious food, great portion sizes and welcoming staff. We tried the specialty (a chicken and blood pudding dish), stew, the burger and fish and chips. We would recommend all of them!

After not getting service at a neighboring stop, we came in here. The waitress was so pleasant that it made up for the low grade pub fare. If a great meal is what you are after this is not your place, but the atmosphere and...music were worth stopping in.More

Thankfully, we were early in the day, as this place was filling fast. It appeared we were there for the arrival of rival "Hen Parties", as they are called in Ireland. The food and drinks were great. The portions of food were very generous. And...the service was very good. Nice pub!More

Following the advice of our host, we go there for dinner. A great and warm place, with welcoming and friendly staff. The typical pub food is great and tasty. I recommend the Beef & Guinness Stew, the meat is meltingly good and the sauce is...delicious. The place is definitely worth of visit.More

Cathy is correct, we found it in Kilkenny which was about an hour and a half SW of Dublin. TOTALLY worth the drive!
