We stopped in to Tynan's for a drink and to hear some music. We were lucky to be able to see Stephen Murphy, he had lots of great songs and was very entertaining!

Thanks Liam Marlyn and Ciara for a great few days. We come across Tynans on our first day and were drawn back at some stage every day for the music the banter and the warm friendly surroundings, do not miss this place when in Kilkenny

Nothing fancy. Just good music (not live), staff and drinks. Traditional Irish bar decor. Great spot for a drink and a chat.

Went in on a recommendation from a friend. It's a nice little pub with a big smoking area out side. Stayed for a couple of drinks and left. Nice to experience
