Really Good

I have been to Ripley's with my husband and with the whole family and no matter what occasion we have always got a good meal. My kids love it here and the staff are always friendly. I love the chicken fajitas!

On a very cold night, the manager recommended the soup for a starter, he was right it was the best I have had for a long time. The Burgers are huge, very well presented together with a great atmosphere, brilliant attention & service. We felt that another visit to Ripleys' will be on agenda shortly. The food is great.

The staff here were very professional. They cannot be faulted for the rating. The low rating is because all 4 of us had steak, as it is a steakhouse. Unfortunately the steaks themselves were of very poor quality. Not a steakhouse in my eyes

Nice restaurant with street view window seats. However we sat in the middle with a bamboo divider between us and the next couple. Not the type of food I would expect of a steakhouse. Menu is definitely not a focused one and is rather untidy presentation with poor presentation skills and spelling mistakes. Not a good first impression. Proceeded to... More

Visited Ripleys recently with friends. We were pretty disappointed with our meal and with so many great options in Kilkenny, I wouldn't be inclined to go again. Chicken wings starter was ok but would have liked more than 4 wings and the leaf of iceberg lettuce garnish looked miserable and I felt like I was back in the 70's. The... More

We were really looking forward to some good high-quality steaks when we decided to go here. It was for 7.30 on a Friday night - the restaurant was probably half full at the time - not that hectic at all. We were shown to our table and left 10mins sitting before given menus and another 20mins before our order was... More

We first found out about the restaurant in 2012 via Trip advisor. When we decided to go that visit it was fully booked that night. But being curious about the place we decided to go the next play during lunch hour. It was amazing, both me and my partner love steaks and we are very picky about where we eat... More

They do an early bird on a Thursday night which was great value. €19.95 for 2 course. I had the chicken stir fry and it was fab. Lots of chicken and plenty of fresh veg. Had apple crumble for dessert and it was lovely but enough to feed 2 people. I have been here before and will definitely be back.

We did not book as we were early out dining. We got to sit looking out of window onto street below. One slight critism tables are too close together. We were on an end table and there was not enough room to sit opposite each other. Felt abit squashed. Waitress who served us was very efficient. We had 2 steaks.... More
