My 2 teenage daughters and I ate here tonight, a Sunday evening. We ate in the upstairs room where they had 3 musicians - one playing the violin/fiddle and two playing guitar. The music was great, traditional Irish music with an occasional Irish ballad. More importantly, the music did not overwhelm dinner conversation. The food was great too. One daughter... More

We enjoyed our evening sitting in Kyteler's Inn Pub, music was playing and the bar tender was wonderful. Enjoyed meeting some folks from England with Irish background. The food was fine and the drinks were great!!! Would go again. But We love Ireland!!!

Both meals I have had at Kyteler's were bar meals. The standard of food and variety available were about the usual for pub grub, but the atmosphere and the staff were very welcoming and friendly, happy to chat and make one feel at home.

We we stopped at Kyteler's after our drive from Dublin on the recommendation of our hotel. It has a very pubby feel with several beers on tap and whiskey. The menu was interesting and we got some pretty standard pub food including a chicken and stuffing sandwich which I had never seen before. The sandwich was delicious. We were seated... More

Very nice pub with friendly service, but we expected more from the food. The pate as a starter was amazing, fish and chips were ok.

It was really tasty food, plenty of it too. It was lovely, authentic, little touristy, but the charming way. Most dishes are €12 or 13, but there are small portions too. We had the large portions, and they were plenty. I had a pint of kilkenny, but that felt a bit watery. Staff are super quick and attentive.
