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!

There were about 8 people inside so this should be quick ... We seated ourselves to again another uncleared table.. After a couple of minutes I decided I'd... More

We visited the Field on a number of occasions on our recent visit to Kilkenny. Given that Kilkenny has a large number of pubs and restaurants that, in itself, tells you how good this place is. Live music features from late afternoon until closing, with a mix of traditional Irish, folk and soul. Although there were a number of tourists... More

The restaurant was recommended by my tour guide who said it as "his favorite place in town". I went there at first because I needed free wifi access. The waitress kindly gave me the password, and so eventually I decided to have lunch there with friends. We ordered burgers with fries, chicken fillet in irish style and the signature starter...

We arrived at the Pembroke Hotel and went for a pint after visiting the castle. We stayed for a couple of hours it was so great. Staff was personable and the music and vibe of the place perfectly matches what you would expect a traditional Irish pub to be. Highly recommended!

We stayed until closing time and had a ball. Well worth visiting if you hear the music follow to The Field. Oh! When... More

Varied selection of quality beers served in a well spaced out bar. Great for people watching and the crack was good. Not eaten here has yet.

Found this place after walking all up and down. One of very few pubs that serve food in town and have live music. We had fish n chips, BLT and blue cheese salad with garlic bread. We grabbed a drink at the bar first as there was no table when we got there. Not too long after we secured a... More
