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.

Simple as that. We were staying two nights a the Newlands Lodge B&B and the owner recommended this fine establishment.

We enjoyed it the first evening so much we returned. Friendly staff and great food at very reasonable pricws. You can't go wrong but we recommend the full rack of baby back ribs and the fish and chips. The burger also looked yummy.

Matt's is one of the only pubs we found that has trad music early in the evening. Not just live music but very talented. Ask the guys to sing Danny Boy. I know, who hasn't heard that one but oh, what a brilliant rendition they do.

Very friendly staff and a great selection of draft beer. This establishment is one of the best on our two week Ireland trip.

I had the Guinness stew and my girlfriend had seafood chowder both were excellent. We started our meal with Brie warped in a spring roll shell, I highly recommend this if you like Brie. Not sure when the next time I will be in Killkenny but I will stop in here for another pint.

Stopped in for a little lunch and beverages. We enjoyed the atmosphere, the friendly service, and the food. The fish and chips were very light and flavorful (planko bread crumbs), the goat cheese and pear salad was absolutely delicious and the smoked salmon and fresh crab blended with wasabi mayonnaise appetizer got everything started in the right direction. We would have enjoyed coming when there was live music, but our schedule did not work out. We would definitely return!

One of the most memorable evenings spent in the Emerald Isle was in this bar and restaurant, unfortunately my staff in Kilkenny was for but one night. On arriving at the Hotel, we were greeted by staff that made us feel as though we friends, regulars. But as soon as we spoke, they soon realised we were from Australia. Conversation flowed between the staff and ourselves regarding Australia, were we had been and of places to visit while in Kilkenny.

The same happened when the band was setting up, without request they threw in a few Australian songs and they also introduced us to three other Australians that were in the audience.

I was surprised with the meal, it wasn't quite the Pub meal I was expecting i.e.., (large plate of potato chips hiding a small piece of meat). The plate was well laid out, looked visually appetising, tantalising odours, cooked well and great to taste.

I would recommend this venue to all other travellers and to resident alike.

My friends and I recently went to Kilkenny for the roots music festival and Matt the Millers bar was the first establishment we encountered. Instantly on entering the premises we were all greeted with a warm welcome,the staff were all so friendly that we decided to have a few drinks and a bite to eat and were well impressed. The food was to a very high standard so much so that we all eat there on several occasions over our 3 day visit, the prices were very reasonable for the quality of food provided,all the staff were very accommodating and efficient as the kitchen was on the top floor of a 3 story building. I would highly recommend that anyone visiting Kilkenny should pay Matt the Miller bar a visit. Great food, great entertainment and most of all great staff, the owners should be proud!! P.s say hello to Tom and Sharon their top notch.
