Definitely one of the best pubs in Ireland! And the only pub to be in on a Tuesday night- Rob Strong plays soul music every Tuesday- so worth a visit to Kilkenny, even just for this !!

I was out with friends in Kilkenny, this bar was a lively place, with an excellent live band playing. Bouncers/security on doors and vigilant inside.

My question is why have you got a picture of dead people all piled up from the heysel stadium in your pub ,don't you think it's sick. You will lose a lot of custom if you keep the picture up
