I spent one evening in Kilkenny and I wish I had spent more at Mac Gabhainns! The staff were incredibly nice, attentive, and accommodating. They came out of the hostel and into the street to check where my friend and I parked to tell us if we would be ok or not. They gave of us the restaurant and music scene information we needed which allowed us to have a brilliant evening. Also, I mistakenly left my eye glasses behind and sure enough they held onto them and mailed them to the Dublin address that I was staying at! Purely amazing and very willing to go out of their way for their guests:)
