Came in here as it captured our interest from the street. Lively bright colours outside, large, clean pretty busy. Had a real nice light lunch. Their tomato basil soup is fabulous. Had a pint and watched football on the largest tv I have ever seen

Visited the bar on a recent night away, place was full. Live band playing some great Irish music bands followed by a DJ til late. Plenty of choice of beers etc. Reasonable prices. Staff very friendly. Located in centre of Kilkenny and within walking distances of many other pubs. This is worth a visit.
