Superb food, Fantastic service!!! Must go if visiting Kilkenny!!!

Marble City Bar is one of those places I love to come back for the food, as always fresh and up to highest standards! As well good value for money. Staff is always so nice and polite! I think they have one of the best Guinness in Kilkenny - and the Kilkenny beer from the tap! It is great... read more

We often go here for our coffee and porridge. What a little gem. We love it and the coffee is great. The staff are great, so helpful and friendly. A place to chill out with good food. Pity it is so small but maybe that is why it is so quaint. It is always full.

This place was pretty close to the hostel I was staying at, so it was convenient for breakfast. Excellent coffee.

Tasty food, good service, clean bathrooms. I definitely recommend this find to others. We were on the tail end of pub hopping and seeking food when we came across this place. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly.

Myself and my partner went to a Kilkenny for a midweek break and found this wonderful place. It was very cold outside but as soon as we opened the door of the Marble City Bar we could feel the warmth and noted the lovely atmosphere. We then ordered drinks followed by some food. The food was very well presented, piping... More

Busy sat afternoon (a few months back), the place can get very noisy, tables are quite close so it seems like the strangers eating next to you are in fact dining with you... Service was ok, food was also, only ok, i wouldn't be rushing back. Maybe visit when its quite so you can get the care, service and food... More
