I was actually here in 2013, but it would not allow me to post from that far back. Wanted to just say this place was phenomenal. Food was fantastic and staff amazing. Will be back for more!

I came here and stayed in the hostel with a group of around 20 students and the staff was extremely accommodating to all of our needs, even with such a large group. The food was amazing for both breakfast and dinner. I would highly recommend coming here if you're in Kilkenny and need a bite to eat!

Lanigans is an awesome pub with a fun environment and great service. The live music is a good time, the drinks are fairly priced and the food is delicious. Would certainly recommend.

We had reservations, but on a Tuesday evening, it may not have been necessary because it seemed not very crowded. The food was amazing and a good wine selection.
