Visited this pub for food twice in the last two months. On both occasions the food was excellent and the staff very friendly! The menu had plenty of choice and the food was reasonably priced. The atmosphere throughout is pleasant and I would recommend Kytelers!

Went for a drink one evening which was lovely. Looked at the menu and decided to go back for dinner the following evening. The girl who served us was not friendly. The food was not tasty. Two of us had the lasagne which was not good and the other dishes we had were not great. The food is over priced.... More

We visited in the afternoon and ordered fish and chips. The atmosphere was great, the beer and whiskey wonderful and the food pretty good. Next time we will visit at night to listen to the music and meet more locals.

Kyteler's inn ended up being my favorite pub in Ireland! It's history dates back to the 14th century! We went there for lunch which was delicious then back to experience a bit of nightlife and it turned out to be one of the best nights we had, so much fun because of the friendly people of Ireland.

The Irish sure is great as was the special bacon and mash. The drinks were good of course. The traditional Irish music was a great to listen to as we tested and hung out. Pleasant atmosphere in the bar. The staff was outstanding and the bar itself is cool to look at. This is worth the time and the food... More

We happened upon this bar on the night of the Irish Hurling Championship finals so it was absolutely packed. The food was hearty Irish fare and the pints a reasonable price all served by smiling staff.

The only bad thing about Kyteler's is that it raised the bar for all other pubs for our trip. It is an old building (1634) and has great atmosphere. The food was excellent...my husband had the Irish Stew and I had the Chicken Vol au Vents. Yummy. There was a Trad Jam session that started at 6 ish and then... More

Super friendly staff. The food is absolutely gorgeous. Homemade and tasty. I recommend the lasagne and chips. My boyfriend had the roast dinner. Went on a Monday night. Lively crowd. So packed. With great music on and some Irish ballads. Aim to be there before 8 for seat :)

We were put in one of the back rooms off the bar and it was just a bit small for me. The food was good, the atmosphere was fun, but I would have like to have seen some more history of the Dame Alice Kyteler.
