Fun atmosphere and good music at night. However, I ordered something off the goat cheese tartlet based on the description that was written. Turned out it had pesto in it that was not mentioned on the menu. I should have mentioned being allergic to nuts so I am partially to blame. Just wished the menu had been more accurate. It... More

Spent 1 night for drinks, dinner & music in the upstairs pup. It was an all around fun experience and the musicians really did the room and got people engaged and riled up. The food was very good but, no disrespect to the food portion, we were having so much fun we could have eaten anything and been happy. The... More

Live music, very, very good food for the price. Lots of decor inside including rugby and hurling teams, very rustic feel with wood and cobblestone walls. Have the fresh Cod or Shepherds pie. Portion sizes comparable to the US. Also got salad and chips, which are fries. Sparkling water is free!

We didn't eat here but stopped for some drinks and music. We met some nice people who were sitting next to us and had so much fun that we stayed all night and closed the pub. We had a fun and friendly bartender named Martin who helped make our night memorable.

We happened on Kyteler's Inn from the suggestion of an employee at Smithwick's. We ordered the chicken wings as an app, which were freaking great. We both got the fish and chips, which were also so good. The meal was accompanied by Trad Music and it was some of the best music we heard while in Ireland. This place is... More

This is a happening place in Kilkenny. I think they have adjoined several establishments and business and seemed to have something going on for everyone. There was a nice restaurant with Trad music going on. It was the best traditional music I found in Kilkenny. It is a professional performers who are relaxed but you can tell this is not... More

Food was very tasty. I had lamb which was plentiful. Oh yes, we ate at the bar so we could be close to the Trad Band. Music was awesome. Played for a 2.5 hour stretch. There were people from all over Ireland in the house, so it had a local feel.

We were only in a Kilkenney one night and so glad the B&B recommended Kytelers for Irish music. The night we were there it was packed and people were really listening to the music. We loved hearing the traditional songs and wish we would have gone earlier in the night!

We were so lucky to be able to go here when they had traditional Irish music - three men with Irish accordion, drum and guitar. They played for two hours and were fantastic. Good pub food - bangers and mash and a salmon salad - with Smithwicks of course!

Medieaval building in the heart of Kilkenny dating back to 1324. Once home to Dame Alice Kyteler tried for witchcraft. Kytelers Inn is NOT a restaurant but a Pub - which is our main business. Yes we also serve bar food.There are three floors with four bars - cheek them all out for the one that suits.On offer at peak season twice nightly from 6.30pm. is a programme of trad music,balladeer, irish dancers & seanachie. You can watch & eat & drink at your leisure.Weekends and Bank holidays we also have Late Bar extensions with bands & DJ for those that want to party a bit later into the night.As it was in Alice Kyteler's day - Kyteler's Inn is a place for "merrie making" - Come and visit us to find out more..Also check us out - Trip Advisor Bars/Nightlife
