This pub has been around since the 1300’s and still serves great Irish stew. Good service, lots of beer selections and good live entertainment every night. A must stop of you are in Kilkenny.
We were treated to absolutely great traditional music by the Raglan Rogues (great voices and players), and an enthusiastic crowd. The Irish set the bar for friendliness and this evening was no exception.
Kyteler's Inn is a fantastic place to spend time over drinks. There is quite a bit of history about the place which adds to the ambiance. It's a lively time on an evening - live music many nights (including the night we were there - which was energetic and entertaining...and irresistible to singing along with). Plenty of drink choices and a lot of rooms and nooks to wander through. The bar staff were friendly and quick with service as well.
