Location and contact

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

The pub is placed in the oldest house in Kilkenny. Fantastic place which deserves a visit, but dishes are average.

One of many good pubs in Kilkenny on any night, but when they have a good band on it is packed and great fun. Drinks are reasonably priced.

This was a recommended place from our travel guide and it was spot on. The food was excellent. We had lunch here and had fried Brie and a ham and cheese panini. Excellent. This pub has been open since the 1300's. Amazing history.

This Inn has it all....amazing atmosphere, packed with history - including visual paraphernalia, delicious food, great staff and warm and cozy. It's in the middle of the main area and easy to find.

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