Ate here as a group of 8 with a booking. Positives - Food was excellent and service very good. We wanted to watch a match so we were put on a central table so we all had views of a TV. Chicken tenders were very...nice and the pizzas. Negatives - no masks or visors worn by Staff but they did take contact tracing info at the start. Other tables were not 2 metres apart and staff did not stop people at these tables swapping seats and effectively moving to be beside each other. I also asked for extra gravy and was charged an extra euro which was a bit needless. No social distancing in the men’s bathroom, there was probably only room for 2 people max but no signs up so I ended up being in there with 4 others and it was extremely uncomfortable as there was no space between any of usMore

Hi. Sorry I only see your question now. We never ate here just had drinks. I’m sure you may have to book it’s a safer option as everywhere seems very busy. Enjoy Kilkenny.

Plenty old car paths nearby. Try Ormonde street car park for best rates.
