Description: Matt The Millers Bar & Restaurant is a perfect location for your meal, private parties and festive occasions. We offer an extensive drinks menu and the same high service standards that we strive to deliver in every area of our operation. Enjoy lunch, a romantic occasion, dinner or your own private event. We cater for every taste. You will also find some wonderful private snugs throughout our bar. These snugs are perfect for small get-togethers where you can enjoy all that Matt's has to offer in the secluded confines of these salubrious havens of comfort & quiet. We have been partying at Matt's for 20 years now so we have learned a thing or two about throwing the very best parties to suit every occasion. We have Traditional Irish Music every evening along with more music on select nights of the week. For private parties, we can put any one of our five bars at your disposal and we are happy to do as much, or as little as you need us to do to make your party a huge success. There will always be a warm welcome and a hearty smile waiting for you at Matt's. Our bars are ergonomically designed to ensure only the highest possible standards of service whether you're having a morning coffee, an afternoon tea, an early evening beverage or a pint with friends at one of Matt's famous party nights. Every effort is made to ensure that our extensive menus of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are constantly updated to make sure that every taste is catered for. Our extensive food menu is also available at the bars, with breakfast, lunch and dinner served. So, whatever you're looking for and whenever you want it - you can rest assured that it's waiting for you at Matt the Millers' Main Bar.

Really good pub atmosphere with excellent food at sensible prices. Lovely place for lunch and great for dinner - especially if you go when they've got Irish music on - it's great fun!

“A nice Kilkenny pub.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

If You like pub grub, this is the place for dinner. Food is fairly good, but a tad over priced. During lunchtime service can be a bit slow, but its understandable when You see how busy it is. Arrive at 12 or 2 for a quiter mealtime. Breakfast , probably best try The Field or The Pantry instead. Monday to thursday there is trad Irish music (not sure which night). Avoid on friday and saturday nights unless You like texting because this is the only way to communicate with the friend beside You (due to excessively loud music), also like being in the back of a cattle-truck after midnight. All in all though, not a bad spot

Matt the Millars is a buzzing venue in the heart of Kilkenny, we recently travelled there on a hen party and they were very accommodating allowing a stripper and all ( I got the ok from John the manager on this before we landed) they had even organised a private room for us that we had for the occasion. A great spot for hen's with good lively music! a must visit!

“Nice pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

Good nice pub. But all of the bouncers on that strip of road are all on the doors at 8pm and don't like big groups it seems. They all radio eachother to tell other bouncers not to let you in if they don't like the look of you. Langtons turned me a few people down even though it was the 1st pub we were going to. they obviously told matt the millers and they turned us down too. No reasons given. just that we were too drunk even though we had finished work at 5 and were there at 8... had one pint in the field bar before going there so we were far from drunk. Went to matt the millers later that night and the pub itself is nice. 3 floors, plenty of live music.
