Popped in for a drink and it was a really good vibe. Decor was really beautiful and overall a great experience. Would go back.

This is an enormous, great bar in the heart of Kilkenny. Saw Irish rockabilly band Skinny Elvis play there -- they were outstanding. Enjoy the Kilkenny Cream Ale.

The food here is fantastic! I hardly wanted to try anywhere else in Kilkennny and instead just eat this place's whole menu!. The decor is stunning too. It's hard not to look around. I highly recommend!

Being a group of 'oldies' we were not sure if this was the right place for us, but gave it a try. Staff were pleasant, food was good and the atmosphere really welcoming. Can certainly recommend the burgers - they were delicious!
