Had a blast at Kitty’s last night. Great food and company. Place was busy and it was a Monday nigh! Music was top notch traditional and our server, Eileen, was the best! And that was not the top of it. The food was soooo good....Seafood platter and the fish and chips. So fresh and tasty. We’ll be back!More

Stopped in for an Irish coffee and decided on a snack. The Moules Mariniere were the best I’ve had so far!

Although best known for its fish & chips, the seafood chowder is to die for! Note that they refuse to give up the secret ingredients of their recipe… I already asked :)

We loved our experience at Kitty O'Se's in Kinsale. There was a wonderful musician and our kids loved their first sing-song experience in Ireland. The fish and chips were great, and the bacon and cabbage was out of this world (not to be confused with...the American corned beef and cabbage - this was a million times better!). The staff was super friendly and generous - they even gave my kiddo a shirt after we gave them bracelets (we gave bracelets to everyone we met in Ireland) and that was just magical for our kiddo!More

Popped into Kitty’s bar for a drink and a bite to eat last week, the lunch was so delicious, fresh and tasty, the servers were very attentive and we have recommend our new Buddy Dave for his generosity of time.

Chef John can cook!! Not only a personable young chef but truly loves what he does and it showed in his cooking. Most excellent seafood platter! The music at night was also very nice. I would definitely recommend this as a must stop and eat...to anyone traveling through Kinsale. Large portions as well.More

I'd say after 6, they always have constant live music. It's certainly more lively as the night goes on so it's good to get there a bit early to get a table, eat then stay through all the music.

Prices are well under the cost of drinks in Dublin. The cost of a pint of Guiness would be in the region of 4 to 5 euros. Great pub and very friendly
