Went for dinner tonight and potentially to see music, which we chose not to stay for. We ordered the lamb stew and the lasagna with a white sauce. The food came and was by far the worst food we had in our 12 day visit to Ireland. The lamb was so tough I could not chew it and I would... More

Can't beat enjoying an evening in an establish that close to 700 years old. We had good pub food at a reasonable price. Service was quick and efficient. This was followed by taking in some live music (no cover). Just note that the music is in their courtyard which is covered but outside, so smoking is allowed. We did leave... More

We food was marginal but my husband had the lamb stew that he said was very good. The rest of us had a chicken pie which was just "ok". The food was served quickly but... More

This place was recommended by our hotel because they start live music earlier than most. Which appeals to us because we've had a long day. We decided to go for dinner and to listen to some live music. I wish I would have known that by wanting dinner, we would be seated in the basement bar. Where they played an... More

I had the bangers and mash and it was lovely the sausages were huge and the gravy to go with it was perfect! We had a couple of drinks here... More

A nice enough place with a long history, atleast according to the menu. The full bangers and mash is huge and delicious. The fish was good the chips soso. Nice family atmosphere, though it had several floors, each with a different feel. Id say its pretty touristy. We ended up in there on learn to play the irish drum night.... More

This was very interesting because they had a storyteller as well as an Irish band. The story about the first person in Kilkenny to be accused of witchcraft was entertaining. Although the band was good, they lacked sparkle and seemed as though they're a bit fed up of doing the same thing every night. The food was pleasant and the... More

Do you want authentic Irish food , music and atmosphere? Here it is. The inn has an interesting history, the food was great Pub fair and music started at 6. Had the Irish stew and local beer. We are not late eaters. The best Irish pub experience on our trip.

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
