We had a great dinner upstairs while the place was pumping. I was amazed when the bar manager saw my Guinness was poured a little low and grabbed it from the table to top it up. Now that's service!

Great Bar, music, fun, and very friendly bar staff. We went for a drink around 9 pm. The bar started to gradually liven up and we didn't leave until late, needless to say we all enjoyed a great night at Matt the Mille. We will definitely be back again.

A really professional group of young musicians who finished far too soon as far as the enthusiastic crowd was concerned. The person who vomited in the toilets was obviously having a good time anyway...

Are here twice. Their beef stew is outstanding. Wife had chicken fetticini which she said was delicious. They have a wide ranging menu, really nice pub like environment, and public parking just down the small road next to the water.

We went here for after hours drinks and dancing. In Kilkenny there is only 1 bar open after midnight every night. This (late night bar) was the late night bar on Friday. It was very crowded and difficult to dance in. They had a DJ playing pretty good music. The drinks were good and its a nice place to socialize.

What a wonderful place. The food was exceptionable, atmosphere delightful and service outstanding! Live traditional music every night. Trevor was an absolute proper gentleman as wait staff. Multi-levels allows you to hear the music from all around. We listened to the group called, "Wallop the Cat". This place is a must visit if you are anywhere close by.

Gorgeous food. On a hen there recently and the service was fantastic. It was lovely to have the reserved area, it really added to our whole night and kept the group together! We had a two course meal and everyone raved about the food after, it was very tasty and looked as good as it tasted!

I attended a hen party here in April, there are many levels and different bars, although the place was packed, we found room to dance and have fun.

This place is wonderful, the food, ambience and music are fabulous, sit by a window and get a gorgeous view. They have live music which can be heard upstairs in the restaurant while the more lively party crowd can sit downstairs. The Seafood chowder and the Beef stew were both outrageously good!
