What a fabulous bar. Great staff, great food & fabulous atmosphere. We had the Irish Stew which was fabulous. The live music was excellent. The staff were very accommodating with my boy. I will always come back here when I’m Kilkenny. It’s a fabulous experience.

Slow and ignorant bar tenders, food was average but atmosphere poor. Pretentious little spot that needs a make over and new management.

Stopped by at 6 for the dinner music show. The 3 guys playing traditional Irish folk mixed with u2 acoustic. They play all kinds of instruments and was very interesting. The food on the other hand wasn't as good as the music but easily overlooked...More

Came here with local friends for drinks after dinner elsewhere. You can't beat the ambience, with the decor of this medieval inn still intact. The trad music was great - varied enough so there was background music for us to be able to talk and...More
