Yes we also serve bar food.There are three floors with four bars - cheek them all out for the one that suits.On offer at peak season twice nightly from 6.30pm. is a programme of trad music,balladeer, irish dancers & seanachie. You can watch & eat & drink at your leisure.Weekends and Bank holidays we also have Late Bar extensions with bands & DJ for those that want to party a bit later into the night.As it was in Alice Kyteler's day - Kyteler's Inn is a place for "merrie making" - Come and visit us to find out more..Also check us out - Trip Advisor Bars/Nightlife

“Good food...good music”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

Food was tasty, hearty and fast! The Irish stew will keep you fed for a long time. I suggest a small bowl vs large one. Service was good, not great, but real reason is to go is the atmosphere. Building is from the 1300's and the courtyard is open and filled with music. Lots of locals as well as tourists so has a great feel to it. Definitely worth a stop and parking is right behind it so an easy in and out of town

“Great spot for a pint and food”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Went in with the family for a (sort of, about 8:30) late bite to eat. I was worried that bringing the kids in might be a problem but not at all. The host at the door brought us in and sorted out a table for us where the kids were out of the way but we could hear the music. The food was usual pub grub but was very good. Pints good, music good, all good. Would recommend as a family friendly place to eat in Kilkenny city.

“Ancient Inn with a mysterious past”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

We discovered and lunched at a quintessential medieval pub and restaurant on Kieran Street. We read about the strange past of its original owner, and enjoyed the ancient décor and ambiance.
The food and drinks were great, as well as the service.

“Great entertainment”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

We came for dinner and the had Irish dancers and live musicians.
I would agree the food was good pub food. The extra dancers and live musicians made it an experience.
