“Jackies Hen”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

Cliodhna was very friendly and helpful giving us a reserved area for the night and we had a great night. Plus it was really nice to visit a pub where the bouncers had a smile for you too :-)

“Do not go near the Left Bank, the worst staff I have ever came across!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

We were in Kilkenny for a girls weekend & had been having a lovely walk around the town when we came to the Left Bank. It looked very impressive from the exterior so we decided to go in for a drink. However the staff were very rude & stuck up, they refused to serve us and when we asked why, said we were in the wrong area. We weren't drunk, loud or making a scene but were refused service. On the way out again several of us noticed that those in the bar were near silent, that you must only be allowed to stay if you are not going to make any noise & if you DIDN'T want to enjoy yourself. If you actually want to have some fun on your visit to Kilkenny then do not go near the Left Bank, you want to make sure you go to the right area.

“Hen Central!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

Had area reserved for hen party of 25. Met at the door and escorted to our area. Brilliant music. Great cocktail bar. Ideal for hens and stags and you're assured to bump into lots of them here!

“Lovely bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

We had a lovely late afternoon drink here. The atmosphere & staff were great and it was exactly what we were looking for. It was pricey enough (almost EUR12 for 2 drinks - a Beer and a Wine) but we knew that before we went in. When we were heading home at around midnight, there was a queue to get into the place so not sure what it was like late evening.
