Go to Lanigan's and get the pork hock. You won't regret it. It was one of the best meals I've ever had.

Came in here as it captured our interest from the street. Lively bright colours outside, large, clean pretty busy. Had a real nice light lunch. Their tomato basil soup is fabulous. Had a pint and watched football on the largest tv I have ever seen

Visited the bar on a recent night away, place was full. Live band playing some great Irish music bands followed by a DJ til late. Plenty of choice of beers etc. Reasonable prices. Staff very friendly. Located in centre of Kilkenny and within walking distances of many other pubs. This is worth a visit.

The food here was okay but not great. Most of it was very heavy. The good part about this place is spending time with friends there. It has a great relaxed atmosphere. They brought live music in and that was great. The music was amazing and the musicians were interactive and there was even some dancing. I highly recommend this... More
