The Left Bank is one of the finest bars you will see any where.The decor and lay out of the bar is amazing.This is a very big venue with many different bars but it still has great character and a wonderful atmosphere.The Staff were really friendly .especially Adian who gave us lots of useful information about where to go and what to do during our stay in Kilkenny city.We would highly recommend the Left Bank for a good night out.

Nice architecture and design of venue but unfriendly and untrained door staff ruin the left bank. We were disgusted to see them vindictively manhandling anyone they took a disliking to. It is a pity the pub is at a focal point beside the castle as there are several other much better bars around the medieval mile worth discovering.

Visited this pub as part of our stag night and there was a great band playing , atmosphere was lively and it seemed to have an upper class feel to it , it has a few levels I think but only one open on the Friday night , a nice place for a drink

On a recent visit to Kilkenny for my Daughters Hen Party, we called to The Left Bank Bar for a cocktail lesson as part of the activities. Anthony was our host and he was excellent at his job. We had great fun and we really enjoyed it. It is a very busy lively bar more for the younger generation.

We stopped here for lunch before visiting Kilkenny Castle, which is just across the street. Good pie; cold Guinness; good service. Street parking.
