You can try the Smoked Chicken with seasonal dressed salad, or the Classic Steak sandwich, Chicken Tagiatelle, and also their grilled homemade Beef Burger. Petronella also hosts various events.

First established in the 1850s, Matt the Miller is a traditional pub overlooking the River Nore. It attracts a diverse range of patrons, although currently, it serves Kilkenny's younger set. The upstairs bar is particularly lively over the weekends, with an emphasis on traditional and rock music, while the downstairs is a little more sedate; its timeless wooden interior is the perfect place to nurse a quiet pint.
Kyteler's Inn is an excellent example of a medieval tavern and dates back to 1324. The pub takes its name from a local Kilkenny woman, Dame Alice Kyteler, who married four times and was convicted of practicing witchcraft in the same year. Tastefully restored, the pub's traditional interior with timber floors, wooden tables and an open fire makes for an excellent atmosphere. The Irish stew comes highly recommended.
The Field is an historical bar and restaurant serving breakfast and typical Irish specialities. It often hosts the best bands of the area, offering wonderful live music every night! This is the perfect place to spend a night with your friends or simply taste some of the best specialities of the area.
