“Nice Wedding Venue”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Attended a family wedding and rehearsal dinner. It was very nice. The food was good and the reception area very spacious. We really enjoyed ourselves and had no problems with the service that I was aware of. Very pretty place too.

“Great Music”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Popped in here for a drink before dinner on Saturday. A band were just setting up when we got there (not sure of their name) but they were absolutely brilliant and had some people up dancing within a few minutes of starting to play. The drinks were reasonably priced. We planned on coming back after dinner but the place was absolutely packed at that stage.

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Ate there twice during a two-day visit to Kilkenny, which I think says a lot! The staff is friendly, the food is good and the overall atmosphere is very welcoming.

“Irish Hospitality at it's best!”
Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

Had great evening at Lanigans Bar in Killkenny last weekend. Great place with lots of history and bar has been lovingly restored by owners, a delightful brother and sister team PJ and Kiera. Learned about history of hurling which seems to be the local game of choice. Great pub food and great place to spend an evening. If you are an American traveling to Ireland stop in Kilkenny and if you have time for one pub....make it this one!
