What an absolute cracking bar. Staff so friendly, drinks mixed well and the food. Just belly filling scrumptious-ness. It was full with people celebrating, staff worked so well clearing plates and glassware. Truly an Irish gem......

Stopped in for lunch a few weeks ago. The chicken breast was amazing! My partner got the ham sandwich (which wasn't as impressive) but still delicious.

We didn't eat in the Left Bank (actually I lie, we got a spar plate of finger food from a 40th birthday party and it was fantastic) but we spent the evening there drinking for a stag do. The atmosphere was fantastic, they had the match on big screens that you could watch and a very fun crowd. Plenty of... More

My husband enjoyed his gourmet burger very much. I had the fish n chips which was good as well. It is right by Kilkenny Castle in the center of the city.

We had a couple of drinks here not a meal but we found the atmosphere pleasant and I loved the interior - lots of interesting pictures and furniture inside. The only downfall is the trek to the bathrooms!! Overall, a great pub and one of my favorites in Kilkenny

It's a gorgeous old building and lit almost entirely in red light on the inside, I was delighted to find an excellent French Cab Sav and croque monsiour on the menu. The tables are plentiful and sitting by the windows on a cool, rainy evening was just what we needed.

From the moment we stepped inside you can see the place is well managed . Staff were attentive from the moment we walked in. I had the burger and it was amazing to be frank. It is a little overpriced on the wine side but it is a great place

Thank scottmicrolights
