Great Irish Craic!

If you want a proper Irish drinking experience then the field is definitely the place to go in Kilkenny. Full of character and life for the whole night!

After searching for a pub with live music a local recommended this place to us AND WHAT A GREAT FIND. The food was great.

Wow! We loved the atmosphere, the food and the staff! Some of the best food we ate in Ireland! Soup, sandwiches and chips that really hit the spot. Great vegetarian options too! The staff was friendly and made us feel very welcome. We loved the live music as well. A great spot!

Spent a fabulous evening in The Field listening to live music and watching everyone accidentally walk out the back door instead of into the loos (despite the three signs, each larger than the other, pointing the way)! Great atmosphere and friendly staff.
