Great guys, big pub and a good atmosphere. Will take a star off because the back doors have smashed glass. One of the lads cut his hand when he opened it. Besides that though, was grand. Very easy going

Grabbed a meal on a Saturday prior to leaving Kilkenny. Hamburger sandwich was not palatable -- meat texture was grainy and unpleasant. Atmosphere is fun and in the midst of Kilkenny action. Bar was super packed with Rugby match and the service staff was stretched to breaking point. Would not recommend!

Stayed here for my hen night. Room was big enough and very clean, beds were extremely comfortable. But the 5 stars are for the staff! They were really friendly and looked after us well. The food was excellent and atmosphere in pub was great we stayed there all night.

In reply to your comment we must point out that you requested and booked a specified service and we provided that service. We did have tables reserved and kept them for you despite the fact that you were over an hour late for dinner with no contact from you that you were running late and you were also continuously aggressive...

My steak baguette was very fatty, though once I removed the excessive fat (which was about half the... More

Lanigan's Bar and Restaurant was absolutely amazing!! My experience in Kilkenny would not have been the same if I had not gone to Lanigan's. It truly captures the essence of Kilkenny, and the people that work at/own the place are absolutely incredible! Damian and Simon are the two nicest Bartenders (make sure you ask for an "Irish Flag" shot if... More
