This place was recommended to us by the tour guide at the Smithwich Experience Tour and our Cycling Tour guide, so we just had to go! Needless to say, the sandwich we had was delicious! So was the soup. Highly recommend!!

Stopped in here for lunch after the Smithwick Experience tour. The bar man was very friendly and cheery. The food was very tasty and well priced and there was a good atmosphere in this well laid out bar. The girl behind the bar even recommended going to a bar next door later that evening to hear the band they were... More

I don't come to Kilkenny without making sure I'm in town for the Monday night music session at Cleeres. Mick leads a good group and everyone has fun. Not too crowded and the audience shows some respect and quiets down for some of the presentations.

Beautiful little traditional Irish pub in the heart of Kilkenny! Staff were incredibly friendly and very helpful! We didn't have any of the food on offer but it looked and smelt great and was available all day. Music on a Wednesday night is a lovely little Irish treat. Good beers on tap and many other drinks available. The open fire... More

I was in Kilkenny in May, and Cleere's is what brought me back - the music sessions, the hospitality, and the stewp! The bar man even ran out to the shop to get the drink I was looking for as they didn't have any in stock. The atmosphere is brilliant, with spontaneous music sessions and various poetic readings by local... More

I visited the John Cleere pub in September 2013. I am looking forward to my next visit to Kilkenny so I can go back to the John Cleere. Fiona, who was in charge of the bar, was so happy and pleasant, she made our visit fun and enjoyable. Wish we could have stayed longer. They advertise they have night entertainment... More
