I arrived late afternoon on a Friday to Kilkenny so was a bit worried about restaurant options, The Marble City Bar had one table left so got very lucky there. The setting is really nice, not too noisy and a perfect place to sit down and enjoy an evening. I went for the lamb shank and it was melting off... More

Had a lovely meal here. Seafood chowder was delicious. The chicken American was very good too. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The bar looks Art Deco and of course the Guiness was fab.

Had the fish and chips with tartar sauce. My dinning companions had bangers and mash, green Thai curry and the stir fry of the day. All meal that showed up were hot and good sized portions. Everyone enjoyed their meals with no complaints except a side dish of carrots and beans in some white sauce that seemed a bit strange... More

It was a bit much to be honest. The waitress assigned to our table was nice and efficient &... More
