The atmosphere is good and the music and stories were entertaining. They need to work on the food a bit though. It was just OK and the Irish Stew was pretty greasy. Still worth a visit.

My husband and I went there to eat. I picked this place because of the age and history of the building. We happen to be there when there was music starting within 15 minutes of our arrival. We loved listening to the authentic Irish music....More

Really liked this place, looks great from the outside and inside had a great atmosphere. We got here quite late and there was a great live band on with a few people dancing. Was a fun experience on an otherwise relatively quiet night in Kilkenny.

My wife and I have been here many times. Here last Sunday while staying in KK. The front bar is a great spot to have few drinks and then eat there. Always great food. Certainly recommend.

I'm giving the Inn a 4 star only due the dessert, the mains were lovely but the dessert was seriously lacking and tasted defrosted. This Inn comes highly recommended by all tourist information in the city and is definitely worth popping into!

I agree. We went on a Saturday night in March and had no problem. However, during the summer months it may be very crowded.

Medieaval building in the heart of Kilkenny dating back to 1324. Once home to Dame Alice Kyteler tried for witchcraft. Kytelers Inn is NOT a restaurant but a Pub - which is our main business. Yes we also serve bar food.There are three floors with four bars - cheek them all out for the one that suits.On offer at peak season twice nightly from 6.30pm. is a programme of trad music,balladeer, irish dancers & seanachie. You can watch & eat & drink at your leisure.Weekends and Bank holidays we also have Late Bar extensions with bands & DJ for those that want to party a bit later into the night.As it was in Alice Kyteler's day - Kyteler's Inn is a place for "merrie making" - Come and visit us to find out more..Also check us out - Trip Advisor Bars/Nightlife
