First night in Kilkenny after a long drive we were looking for a nice Irish dinner without any music; we just needed to relax. And Bollards was perfect. The Guinness beef stew was wonderful, and one in our party has celiac disease and the waiter was extremely helpful discussing gluten-free options. Great atmosphere and staff. Go elsewhere to dance, go here to eat.

Warm, welcoming atmosphere for a pre-dinner Pint by the coal burning fire on a blustery day . . . total relaxation and enjoyment. Did not stay for a meal, so can't offer ant insight there.

We stopped by for some tea and my boyfriend had the sample plate of 3 beers for €5 with local Smithwick's beers. Too bad we found the place so late and didn't have so much time in Kilkenny.. If I'm coming back, this is the place where I'm going for dinner and pints.

Very very poor used to be fantastic value with a great atmosphere but that has changed dramatically in the last while. I got a lasagne but the portion was so small I thought it was a child's meal when I asked the bar he grabbed the plate from my hand and shouted at me awful experience, the food was salty and reheated. The New European bar man is rude and aggressive.
