We had bangers and mash and beef and Guinness stew and both were AMAZING. We actually reworked our trip itinerary so we could go back a second time.

Took the opportunity for a late lunch here. Guinness was very good. Had the Mexican wrap with chips presentation was strange to say the least as the wrap came unwrapped. The tortilla was folded on the plate salad and meat served on top.

Pretty good eats. I had the curry and chips; it was delicious and plentiful. My friend had the fish chowder, which was a little salty but had lots of fish and shellfish.

We ordered and enjoyed one of our best meals on our 16 day vacation in Ireland at this pub. The food was excellent and so was the service.

This was one of our favorite stops in Kilkenny! Our family dropped in for a delicious and relaxing dinner after a long day of touring.

There was a small group playing traditional Irish music too... More

Stopped in for a beer and something to eat. Ended up staying pretty much longer as the local craft beer was very good, the food was delicious, the ambiance was delightful and staff very courteous and friendly. Recommend their Irish Coffee as they simply have mastered this art in the making.

Visited today and staff are really nice and helpful. Food is fantastic and no request from the norm is a problem. Thoroughly enjoyed our food and its not expensive. Customer service is excellent. Found my new local pub whilst visiting Kilkenny next time.

Nice pub, very welcoming, good atmosphere, and mein host, Kieran is nearly as good as his late famous father Christy. Beers always in perfect condition, and the range of Irish and Scottish whiskeys and whiskys on shelves is extensive. Some great memorably about the club is worth reading , especially the visit of August Busche 111.

Had a simple peaceful lunch served courteously in the quiet atmosphere of this pleasant pub. Local craft beers, tasteful decor with snugs for privacy. Just off the Main Street with friendly service and reasonable prices. A good place for a quiet lunch or dinner.
