Delicious food!

Awesome food, great buffet with lots of choices. It was fun to try this style of dining in contrast to all the pubs. The store on the first floor had some really beautiful items.

We had a day out recently in town and headed for the Kilkenny shop for lunch. We had the buggy in tow and couldn't believe there was no lift, when I asked about getting the buggy upstairs I was told we could take the baby out and they'd help us bring it up. We went elsewhere. It's such a pity... More

Our first breakfast in Dublin was experienced at Kilkenny's. Upstairs in the shop is a large dining area that overlooks the street. The typical Irish breakfast was offered along with ala carte selections. We then spent more than one hour looking at the wide variety of Irish goods that was located on the first floor. The staff was VERY helpful... More

The Kilkenny Shop is my favorite for souvenir (and personal!) shopping in Dublin, as it offers the widest selection(s) of traditional-Irish and current-artists' wares. It's also brilliant for people watching! The Kilkenny Shop also has a lovely café. [Something America has never gotten right, in my opinion.] That said: The Westbury's lobby – perched before a front window looking toward... More

most of the reviews must be from tour groups, there's a restaurant on the second floor so I guess companies are incentivized to stop there. I walked all the way from christchuch on the reviews here (which was only a 5-10 minute walk, not the end of the world). It's a couple small rooms. The quality of what they are... More

Had seen the tea rooms from the top of our bus and always wanted to pop in...anyway we had been in the city all day, on a walking tour and visiting certain places..it was after 5.30pm, and we were after a good cup of tea and to rest our weary feet. Upstairs we went and the staff were clearing up,... More

We were initially attracted by the coffee lounge upstairs which serves good fresh food at reasonable prices ( they do large bowls of porridge ! ) . The ground floor is given over to selling all manner of stuff produced and designed in Ireland , good for gifts of a wide price range. On Sundays there is live music most... More

Dublin has a gift shop for all purses and tastes, on the very same street you can pick up a puffed up Guinness leprechaun hat for 9'99, or even a nice painting by a local artist for €2000+. The Kilkenny shop, has the crystal gifts, the statues, slightly more expensive, but nice gifts, that tourists and locals can buy for... More
