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.

A lovely corner bar overlooking the bridge, river and the Killkenny Castle we had some lovely soup for lunch and a couple pints, the place is divided over several level and plenty little corners to meet friends and still have a kinda private conversation. Full of character and we when back later at night for some great live music.

Went to Matt the Millers on a Monday night over Easter. Pub was busy and soon started to get packed and I now know why. The in house band on a Monday night "after dark" I think their called is one of the BEST bands I have ever heard. Great atmosphere in the place. Great bar staff and friendly security staff (it's not too many places you go into and the doorman opens the door for you!) I would travel 2 and a half hours to Kilkenny again just for another Monday night like that in Matt the Millars. Will most definitely be back.

What a bar! Music is upbeat and recent, plenty of space to dance and staff are lovely! We didn't leave until 2:40am! It's the type of bar where strangers are friendly to each other and the bouncers are sound!

Great little bar/restaurant. We had an early bird special which was very reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and attentive. The food was very good. There was also live music which was great. One little quirk was that our table was a converted sewing machine table which was rather uncomfortable!
