My wife and I had lunch here last Thursday. Always enjoy having lunch and a few drinks in the Hib bar. Excellent chowder. Great atmosphere always. Bit more expensive than other places but always good. Certainly recommend the bar for lunch.

Really atmospheric bar with wood panelling and an open fire, so a good place for a drink but don't be tempted by the barfood. I have eaten here a few times and it was never great but the last time was just BAD (finally I have learnt my lesson!) I ordered eggs benedict, I won't even go into the details,... More

My wife and I had lunch here on a Monday in early December. Always love this bar - especially in winter time. Fabulous chowder. Good Guinness ! Always busy but certainly recommend it for lunch.

Lots to choose from on this well constructed bar menu. Freshly prepared, warmed plates, nice cutlery, seems to be simple enough, but a lot of other places miss the basics. Lots of seating, in a convivial atmospheric location, warmed by flaming stoves and open fires. No downside here when looking for inexpensive, well prepared and tasty food.

This is always a busy lively spot to have lunch. The menu is varied with something to suit every taste and appetite. The portions are generous and the staff very friendly and efficient. Always return here while visiting Kilkenny. Great too if you only want a coffee or a drink.
