“Friendly Place”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

We met some friendly locals and chatted to a lovely staff member who was very helpful with suggesting nice places to visit and go for dinner, great recommendations and the cosy little bar itself was a really nice spot to visit

“Good pub”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

I knew this house in a previous life before it was a pub. Very little has changed - it was always a welcoming, comfortable house - it still is. A really nice place to relax and have a drink.

“Welcoming pub in heart of town!”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

We stopped at The Blue Bar after a day of wandering Kilkenny. It was great, as the bartender had a wonderful sense of humor and the other patrons were friendly toward the tourist Americans!

“Great pub”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Visited The Blue bar every night on our 4 night stay in Kilkenny and it was brilliant.We were a large group(44) of thirsty Welsh golfers and most of us started the night here.
The landlord worked his socks off every night and was very friendly despite all the stress from running the bar flat out.He seemed to be serving 6 at a time without any bother,class act.
The Guinness was excellent and well worth the wait(no rush)
The bar was very clean and will be back again in June.Well done Landlord,great job.
