This place is awesome! I didn’t see any ghosts, but legend has it this place is haunted. No worries, at least the service is excellent and the food is delicious! Take a load off enjoy lunch or dinner here!

Wonderful food with brilliant staff. I was served really quickly and thoroughly enjoyed my meal! I would happily recommend this restaurant/pub to locals and especially tourists in search of great Irish food and a taste of Irish culture.

This inn is so cool! I recommend going in to see the place and grab a drink but if you’re thinking about eating there, I would recommend finding another spot.

Kyteler's Inn has been in existence for hundreds of years. So we had to come for lunch. Good service had a tuna melt which was decent. The wife ordered lamb stew which we both enjoyed.

Food and drinks were good, just Irish stew was not really Irish;) was looking like meat and carrots were cooked together while potatoes were boiled separately and added into the dish before serving..

This is an historical building in the heart of Kilkenny. The lively bar/restaurant is worth a visit for drink or food. During the height of the season it can be a bit impersonal but the decor is unique. Watch out for Dame Alice, Kilkenny's witch.

The menu is really interesting to read about the story that took place. Food is decent and so does the prices.

I agree. We went on a Saturday night in March and had no problem. However, during the summer months it may be very crowded.

Medieaval building in the heart of Kilkenny dating back to 1324. Once home to Dame Alice Kyteler tried for witchcraft. Kytelers Inn is NOT a restaurant but a Pub - which is our main business. Yes we also serve bar food.There are three floors with four bars - cheek them all out for the one that suits.On offer at peak season twice nightly from 6.30pm. is a programme of trad music,balladeer, irish dancers & seanachie. You can watch & eat & drink at your leisure.Weekends and Bank holidays we also have Late Bar extensions with bands & DJ for those that want to party a bit later into the night.As it was in Alice Kyteler's day - Kyteler's Inn is a place for "merrie making" - Come and visit us to find out more..Also check us out - Trip Advisor Bars/Nightlife
