Great meal and Wallop the Cat group

We ate here and enjoyed a great night. The food was very good and the waitstaff was very attentive. A 2 member group was playing traditional Irish songs. We loved them so much that we bought their CD. They are called Wallop the Cat and I believe they play here regularly. Between the food and the... read more

I was very disappointed in our visit here, especially after seeing good reviews on Trip Advisor. We went here one night in search of good music and fun. There were 4 of us in our group but at the time we went we were lucky to get a table quickly. After sitting there for a while someone finally came and... More

The owner, John treated my wife and I like family. There is excellent food and music to be had here. The prices are reasonable and the lamb was incredible. Staff was friendly and had great information about the area to share. Also try Kytlers Inn over the bridge and on the left. It is another jem within Kilkenny.

Matt the Millers was a very realistic pub with live traditional irish music, great food (especially the fish and chips), and the perfect glass of Guiness. Our service was also fun and entertaining. We got there early evening for meal but were soon joined by a whole lot of local folk. Give it a go--you won't regret it!
