Kytelers Inn is NOT a restaurant but a Pub - which is our main business. Yes we also serve bar food.There are three floors with four bars - cheek them all out for the one that suits.On offer at peak season twice nightly from 6.30pm. is a programme of trad music,balladeer, irish dancers & seanachie. You can watch & eat & drink at your leisure.Weekends and Bank holidays we also have Late Bar extensions with bands & DJ for those that want to party a bit later into the night.As it was in Alice Kyteler's day - Kyteler's Inn is a place for "merrie making" - Come and visit us to find out more..Also check us out - Trip Advisor Bars/Nightlife

We were in here around 6pm on St Patrick's Day - so it was packed! We were lucky and managed to get a seat at the bar downstairs, and there is a big outdoor area out the back there. We probably didn't get the opportunity to soak up the historical atmosphere of the place as it was just so full of young, and rather drunk, people. But there is no doubt that this is a beautiful building in a great location. Staff were super professional despite being absolutely run off their feet - a total credit to the place. Food was also being fired out upstairs - I hope all the people working here get a breather this week!

This was our second time in Kilkenny and Kytelers Inn was our first port of call. They offer excellent food very helpful staff and brilliant live entertainment weather your looking for quiet traditional music while eating your dinner, or a full on session to sing and dance the night away. We were in Kilkenny for two nights and ended up here both nights as we love the craic here so much. A must if in Kilkenny.

Kyteler's Inn is a bar/restaurant. It's located in the heart of Kilkenny City. Established in 1324 it is one of the oldest medieval bars in Ireland. It has the original stone and beams. Make sure to read about Dame Alice Kyteler before going. Interesting story. Enjoy!

We popped in to watch a match, have a pint and a bite to eat. Staff are good, service is quick. The food is very tasty and reasonably priced. The portions are big too
