We offer an extensive drinks menu and the same high service standards that we strive to deliver in every area of our operation. Enjoy lunch, a romantic occasion, dinner or your own private event. We cater for every taste. You will also find some wonderful private snugs throughout our bar. These snugs are perfect for small get-togethers where you can enjoy all that Matt's has to offer in the secluded confines of these salubrious havens of comfort & quiet. We have been partying at Matt's for 20 years now so we have learned a thing or two about throwing the very best parties to suit every occasion. We have Traditional Irish Music every evening along with more music on select nights of the week. For private parties, we can put any one of our five bars at your disposal and we are happy to do as much, or as little as you need us to do to make your party a huge success. There will always be a warm welcome and a hearty smile waiting for you at Matt's.

Every effort is made to ensure that our extensive menus of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are constantly updated to make sure that every taste is catered for. Our extensive food menu is also available at the bars, with breakfast, lunch and dinner served. So, whatever you're looking for and whenever you want it - you can rest assured that it's waiting for you at Matt the Millers' Main Bar.

The traditional Irish music was wonderful. The food was excellent! Our server, Garry, was a genuinely interested in whether we enjoyed our time not only at Matt the Millers, but in Kilkenny. We're all supporters for the Kilkenny hurling team now! We liked the music and food so much we decided to return on our final night in town and it proved an excellent choice. A whistle player was with the band that night and the music was even better. The crowd politely applauded after every song. You felt transported from being a tourist to being a local although I imagine many in the place were from out of town. One recommendation: order the Guinness Irish Stew. My daughter ordered it and had to fight off my husband and me from eating all of it. It's excellent!

Went to this lovely public house situated in Kilkenny City and right on its river for an afternoon drink and some food. I was served by a very helpful and pleasant member of staff called Michelle. I had a warm chicken salad and some beer to wash it down. The surroundings are pleasant and clean with ample seating arrangements for its customers. The chicken salad was OK but could do with a little more dressing. Full marks to one an all involved though." I will be back"

This was a close walk for us after a two day adventure getting to Ireland. Great atmosphere, wonderful Irish music. The food was average and in my opinion they were understaffed and we saw several people leave after waiting several minutes to be acknowledged or seated. However that being said, we were patient and enjoyed the music. We were over charged but they were quick to correct the bill.

Well the food is only so so but this is a great pub experience. You are treated nicely by the staff, allowed to stay and enjoy the live music and of course the beer is flowing. Glad we dined there for dinner.

We had already had dinner but went in for just a drink and desserts. The creme brulee is amazing (and I am a bit of a creme brulee critic). The music and atmosphere was fun.
