“Recommended by Locals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2011

While overnighting in Killkenny, we inquired a reputable source about a local pub where we could enjoy an atmosphere that's not tailored to tourists. We were quickly pointed to family-owned Syd's in favor of other establishments touted in Ireland travel guides. From the moment we stepped in, we knew it was a locals' hangout because literally every one of the dozen or so patrons turned to see who the newcomers were. Nothing fancy at Syd's, belly-room at the 1-1/2 level bar, plenty of tables, good service, and ready conversation...just what we were looking for!
