We thoroughly enjoyed the traditional food and great service at this establishment! We thankfully got there at the perfect time to be seated for the fabulous live Irish music. We would definitely recommend this place and would go here again next time we visit.

They hustle you in fast. You cant listen to music unless you eat. Even then you dont hear much music. Not a lot of time to relax with a pint. Get in eat and get out. Cheesy and a tourist trap. I can say food...More

More than just an eating establishment, this medieval establishment boasts a compelling history imbuing the medieval inn with a palpable sense of past inhabitants. We dined to authentic Irish music and, later on, yet another band provided music to dance to! Definitely worth a visit!!

A local recommend Kytelers during our brief stay in Kilkenny. We enjoyed the food and especially the live Irish music. It was a lot of fun. Staff was very nice and attentive as well

I agree. We went on a Saturday night in March and had no problem. However, during the summer months it may be very crowded.

Medieaval building in the heart of Kilkenny dating back to 1324. Once home to Dame Alice Kyteler tried for witchcraft. Kytelers Inn is NOT a restaurant but a Pub - which is our main business. Yes we also serve bar food.There are three floors with four bars - cheek them all out for the one that suits.On offer at peak season twice nightly from 6.30pm. is a programme of trad music,balladeer, irish dancers & seanachie. You can watch & eat & drink at your leisure.Weekends and Bank holidays we also have Late Bar extensions with bands & DJ for those that want to party a bit later into the night.As it was in Alice Kyteler's day - Kyteler's Inn is a place for "merrie making" - Come and visit us to find out more..Also check us out - Trip Advisor Bars/Nightlife
