We had our wedding afters party in a private room in Kytelers Inn. We had the most amazing night. The room is like a feast hall from Game of Thrones! The manager is excellent and he is very easy to deal with. We arranged a drinks reception and finger food. The room has its own bar, toilets and smoking area... More

We had a drink in the bar and then decided to stay for a meal. We had to wait until the area was set up for the entertainment before we could get a seat. The entertainment is local musicians who do a good job, expecting audience participation. Not really our thing. The meal was very average. I had fish cakes... More

We went here for a Wedding After Party. It was down a closed street. A stone bulding with so many rooms! Loved it!! We were in a back outdoor room with high and low tables - so much character. Staff was nice and the band was great. Enough room for dancing, eating, talking and drinking! A lot of fun!

Wonderful authentic atmosphere. We went early for dinner and stayed for the music, Tomas Jackman. He was wonderful as was the food. If I have the opportunity to go there again, I'll be there in a heartbeat . Staff very helpful and friendly.

This Irish pub established in the 1300's is full of the real Irish Charm and heritage. Right down to the live music.... Check out the story of the founder..... Get there early to get a seat before the music starts (before 7.30 pm). Parking is easy (park behind Dunne's). This place is the real McCoy!

We went for a dinner. Pub got a great atmosphere. Our waitress was very polite and helpful. We did not have to wait too long for our food. Everything was tasty and well cooked. Great stew. Reasonable prices. Good selection of beers. Well recommended place. Would like to visit again.

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.
