Really liked this place, looks great from the outside and inside had a great atmosphere. We got here quite late and there was a great live band on with a few people dancing. Was a fun experience on an otherwise relatively quiet night in Kilkenny.

I agree. We went on a Saturday night in March and had no problem. However, during the summer months it may be very crowded.

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
