I ate at Lanigan's with my winter study abroad program every day we spent in Kilkenny. The staff was kind and accommodating and went above and beyond for us. I loved their pasta dishes and the cocktail/shot specials were cheap. The live music at night was great and I would definitely recommend Lanigan's to anyone in Kilkenny :)
