Good place to have a nice meal and pint. Great location to chill, people watch, after lots of walking and site seeing.

We popped in Hibernian for a quick drink yesterday. The place was buzzing. Great atmosphere and as usual a nice place to be.

My wife and I had lunch here on a Monday in early December. Always love this bar - especially in winter time. Fabulous chowder. Good Guinness ! Always busy but certainly recommend it for lunch.

Lots to choose from on this well constructed bar menu. Freshly prepared, warmed plates, nice cutlery, seems to be simple enough, but a lot of other places miss the basics. Lots of seating, in a convivial atmospheric location, warmed by flaming stoves and open fires. No downside here when looking for inexpensive, well prepared and tasty food.

This is always a busy lively spot to have lunch. The menu is varied with something to suit every taste and appetite. The portions are generous and the staff very friendly and efficient. Always return here while visiting Kilkenny. Great too if you only want a coffee or a drink.

I wasn't expecting too much from a pub on a Sunday night in October but this is the Hibernian hotel and the service and standard of the food was above pub/bar standard that I was expecting. Beautiful old decor, nice clientele (like me!) and attentive service. I'd go back.

Stayed at the hotel - first class evening meal, selection of starters and main courses, nothing too much trouble and all reasonably priced

We sat at the bar and were attended to by several bartenders, servers and management. All staff were attentive, and extra helpful. Our food was served quickly and was excellent. We had the fish and chips and the fish pie. Very highly recommended.

We dropped into this bar in the late afternoon and were immediately impressed with the feel of the room due to the booth areas and elaborate woodwork. Our server arrived promptly (was actually surprised by this - assumed I'd be ordering at bar) and helped us with some good suggestions for an early evening meal. The food was tasty and... More
