Got a pint of beer and some authentic Irish cuisine. I had the chicken with black pudding and my wife had the vegetarian special-both were excellent! Along with the food, a musical duo played exciting Irish tunes.

Fish & chips and chicken special were both well prepared. Listening to the live music throughout the meal was enjoyable. Seating was readily available and the wait staff was friendly and attentive.

This place is out of this world, our server Peter was fantastic, he pretty much walked us thru the whole menu and didn't hesitate to point out what he thought we might like for dinner, I had the Irish stew, and it was beyond amazing, live Irish music, the whole experience was excellent, would have loved to go back more...

We stopped here three days in a row while touring the Historic sites of Kilkenny. The food choices were great - for the quick bites we were after, and their Irish Coffiee so good - the bartender even gave us a "how to" lesson.

Food was fantastic in both value and taste. Clonakilty black pudding wrapped in chicken breast then wrapped in bacon, covered in spring onion sauce on a bed of champ. Heaven sent! The kids had the house bacon & cheese burger, chicken & chips...smiley faces & empty plates all round! Friendly staff, great prices, great food. Will be back again tomorrow... More

Our group of four had lunch here on a Saturday afternoon. The generous portion of ribs were very good. Friends enjoyed the burger with goat cheese, battered fish, and salad with chicken. All were good and nicely presented. Our server was excellent.

Very well looked after by staff. We were on third floor where the music could be heard but you could still have a chat. There were seats available and plenty of room for dancing. Great band and dj I would certainly recommend it

A day touring Kilkenny is complete with a visit to Matt the Millers. Be sure to check out the Hurling history area on the second or third level. The band Wallop the Kat is great. Lots of your favorite ballads to sing along to.
