Walked into Syd's pub on a cloudy afternoon in Kilkenny. It was cozy and cheery and not as dark and grim as some other pubs. Syd was so friendly and helpful giving us tips on where to eat and what to do the rest of our stay in Ireland. This one is a true standout.

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!
