We stopped, for a quick lunch. Soup and sandwich were very good. Service was decent. Decor/atmosphere are what tourists (like ourselves) would expect... very colloquial and fun.

Several guests in the audience from Kilkenny also sang. It was fabulous. And as we were in Kilkenny that's the beer we ordered and it to... More

Visited the Field last Saturday night. It is small but very nice people here. It was late night so we didn't have food. We did sample their drink, and it is reasonably. There was a large crowd of us, (20). There was no problem either entering the premises or getting a drink. The bar staff were sound and the door... More

Lovely atmosphere and lively Irish music. Had the fish and chips and were well pleased. Another group ordered and they had run out of fish & chips so we shared ours and I got a kiss! Good Guinness beer on tap as all have on tap.

This bar is so irish. It is a lovely lively friendly bar with music ongoing most of the day into the evening. We did not eat here but the food looked lovely. We spent a few hours listening to the music and the Craic. Great atmosphere.

Stopped in here for a few pints during my stay in Kilkenny. There were two musicians playing and they were great! So much energy and laughter. The waitstaff was very friendly and everyone inside was having a great time. We did not eat but I definitely recommend stopping in for a pint or two while live music is playing!

Thank Chris K
