The bartenders were all so nice and fast. I saw the Kilkennys at this pub. There were lots of people having fun listening to music, drinking, and dancing. I would highly recommend this pub if you are in Kilkenny. Cheers!

A great spot to watch a sporting event I would guess but not a lot on when we were here, thankfully though as we got to enjoy the Traditional Irish Music from 6pm. Centrally located in the heart of Kilkenny.More

Travelling through Kilkenny for the night and stopped in. Glad that we did. Live band was great, a little crowded, but manageable to get to the bar. Service was fast. Had a great time. Highly recommended.
