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.

Stopped by after a photo tour of Kilkenny. The band "Kilkennys" were playing on stage and the bar was packed for the show. They began at 10 and we're still going strong when we left 90min later. Super spot for locals and tourists a like.
Located on the river Nore Matt's is a must stop.

Stopped in for a pint while looking for a B & B. Staff very friendly, they called around looking for us. We eventually found one down the road a little. There were two musicians playing traditional music, the whole time we were there. While we didn't eat there the food looked very good.

Monday afternoon. Cool wine, good selection of beers. Good company. Friendly staff. Clean surroundings. Close to the city. Can't beat it.

Nice environment for an early evening meal. All of the menu looked good. I snacked on two excellent appetizers while enjoying the show. The first music act was good (and not deafening as in other pubs). I did not stay for the second band, but judging by the crowd of locals, of all ages, they were a popular group. Lots of tourists due to its central location.
