We visited Kilkenny Castle on a rainy day. The Field is just down the road from the castle. The Field was full downstairs so we were shown to their upstairs area, where we sat at a window where we had a great view of the busy street. The Pub is quite charming with lots of history and pictures on the... More

Spent an hour or two in The Field with a group of friends and had a great time.

We had to pleasure of meeting the owner and he too was as welcoming as the staff. The bar itself was... More

We first of all do not serve steak sandwiches and have not served steak since the end of September. Due to the complaint received by you this could not have happened. We do not... More

We were in Kilkenny the week before the Hurling All Ireland between Kilkenny and Tipperary and it was all about the rivalry! :) We were told that The Field had the world's largest hurling stick hanging in the bar so we had to go and see it before we left Kilkenny but it was always packed!!!! Finally we were able... More

We stopped here for the Trad music and had an awesome time. The food was really good. This was a small & cozy place to relax, eat, drink, & listen to music.

We actually just stopped in to use the restrooms. However we had to have a pint and some chowder. We sampled chowder all through Ireland and this was a very respectable top three. The Dublin/Donegal Semi-Final Football game was on and Donegal was winning. The crowd and serving ladies were polite and accommodating. We enjoyed it.

No food, just a bar. Go an a Tuesday evening and see and hear the incredible Rob Strong and his fantastic band. Rob, father of the Commitments' Andrew Strong, has the same powerful yet soulful voice as his son. What a great surprise on our last night in Ireland.

We got there at 9:30pm, kitchen closed at 9. Re-opened the kitchen for just the two of us, burgers were absolutely fantastic and the live music was very good. The friendliest bar we visited throughout our trip. Highly recommend !
