My boyfriend and I were on vacation in Ireland, and we stopped here for lunch when we were in Kilkenny for the day. This pub/restaurant is wonderful. The atmosphere was great, and the food was amazing. I had the roast beef special, and it was absolutely delicious. I think both of our favorite meals were here. The staff were all VERY warm, welcoming, and friendly, and the place was not overrun with tourists. This is a great pick for lunch or dinner!
