My husband and I ate here several times during our week in Kilkenny and have no complaints at all. Val from Dunromin recommended it and we're glad we took her advice. The food was wholesome and very tasty and also reasonably priced. Service was great and everyone was friendly and courteous. My husband can vouch for the beer :-)

Stayed at a lovely B&B in Kilkenny. Val, one of the owners, suggested Bollards as a local pub where we would be unlikely to be amongst other tourists. Boy was she right. Purely local and loaded with character. The food was classic pub fare... hearty and delicious. The beer was grand and the entire experience just reeked of old world, Irish charm. I wish it was my local. Then again, if it was, I'd be drinking a lot more beer. There were four of us and we all loved this place.
After leaving Bollards we walked up the street to another pub and guess what? All the tourists were there. Yuck!! Boy was Val spot on.

Based on Val's (Dunromin B&B) recommendation, we made this the first place to eat in Kilkenny. Nice tradiotional Irish food.

We always make time for a visit to Bollards for lunch when in Kilkenny. The place never disappoints. The food is always good and good value for money. On this occasion the waitress messed up our order leading to a lengthy delay. She was so nice and apolegitic though and consoled us with a free soft drink that it didn't really matter. Its all part of the Irish experience to learn to take these things in your stride!.
Strongly recommended - a great place to eat.
