If you like Irish pubs, you'll really enjoy Kitty Hoyne's. We started a recent family vacation with dinner (for two couples) plus Trivia Night. Although we were mighty, we went down to defeat. But we enjoyed ourselves so much we returned later in the week for another meal. The beer-list is actually better than what you find in most pubs in Ireland, since craft-brewing is still a fledgling business over there. At Kitty Hoyne's they draw an excellent pint of Guinness, but have a number of local and not-so-local brews on tap. The Irish cannonballs are, as reported, excellent, and the staff engaging. They treated us to a round of Irish Cream liqueur shots (Brady's, new competition for Bailey's apparently). Since the pub-owner is a Kilkenny man, the decor includes not only traditional Irish pieces but more up-to-date items as well, like the framed photo of the victorious 2012 Kilkenny junior team (Gaelic football). Well done, lads, and well done, Kitty Hoyne's.
