Great craic

Even though this bar is very small the atmosphere is great. Live music and plenty of locals as well as tourists which is always a good mix. Get there early as seating can be an issue but well worth stopping at if only for 1 or 2

Stopped in for a quick appetizer and a drink before sightseeing. We were treated horribly. No one even acknowledged we were seated. Waited for 10 minutes and no one came to take our order. We were given many numerous dirty looks and ignored several times before we got the hint we weren't welcomed.

We enjoyed the atmosphere of The Field. The staff were very pleasant and the beer was very tasty. Would definitely go back for drinks!

A group of us were in Kilkenny for a 3 city trip! Walked across the street from the Hibernian to The Field; we were ushered upstairs where there was so much Yankee souveneirs, I felt right at home!

We found this pub on the way back to our hotel after dinner. We heard the lively music on the street and went in. It was standing room only! The group playing was substituting for the regular Sunday night band. They were terrific. This pub is what I imagined an Irish pub to be. We had been in Ireland for... More

Genuine Irish Pub right at the head of High St. (Not a review of the food) Plenty of beer and cheerful locals. Prompt service. We got an education in hurling by John, the owner and heard an amazing band. It's cozy and comfortable. Just as a pub should be.
