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.

Came here on the end of my pubcrawl as it was next to my hotel. Live music was on, there was a pre-wedding party I believe, but I was welcome in the bar, served a nice pint of beer and enjoyed myself. Do not miss the world's largest hurling stick hanging above the bar!

Small pub covered in old Irish photos and memorabilia, seafood chowder was excellent and live music was fun from afternoon on. Good efficient service.

Lunch was much better than I thought it might be. Service was excellent, quick, efficient and friendly. From the moment we entered we were greeted and offered seats. Drinks and lunch food excellent quality and price. Very casual. Just lovely

We had a very nice lunch at The Field Bar. Fish and chips was the group's choice and we were not disappointed. The service was outstanding-fast, friendly, and attentive. We would definitely return on our next visit to Kilkenny.

We spent the last evening of our 12-day-family trip in this Pub and had great fun. The owner John and his staff are very welcoming and the Music (live) was what you'd expect from a traditional Irish Pub! It was definitely one of the best places we visited!

The food was good, and the music was even better. They have live music every night of the week. They start at 5:30 with local musicians playing classical Irish music and then at 9:30 a band comes in that plays a mixture of Irish, rock and roll, and anything that gets the crowd going. Great audience sing a longs and... More
