Was there last Saturday night. Great bar, great staff and great whiskey. I can't recommend this enough.

It can be hard to find a cosy grown-up pub these days. The Dylan does cosy in spades! Simple idea:- great whiskey menu, all the old reliables plus a winter warmers list. I thought it had been there forever, it has that kind of feel. A great antidote to all the barn-like drinking holes currently popular in Kilkenny.

We stopped in for a drink. We loved the atmosphere, maybe because we are fans of Bob Dylan. Nice selection of whiskeys and helpful recommendations by the bartender.

Wow! Great whiskey bar in Kilkenny.
Had 5 pages of different whiskeys on the menu.
Felt like you went to your favorite local pub. Friendly, very cool inside. Memorable.
