Kyteler's Inn

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.

Lanigan's Bar & Restaurant

Lanigan's Bar & Restaurant is located in the center of Kilkenny, right next to Lanigan's Hostel. An ideal getaway for those looking for an entertaining night out on a budget, this bar offers delectable blend of Continental and local Irish cuisine, as well as a range of beers and other drinks to help wash down the meal. Besides the food and drinks, Lanigan’s also plays host to live music, featuring Irish folk music on Thursdays and Sunday, and on other days playing host to local as well as traveling bands and DJs. Call for further information.

Dylan Whisky Bar

For a taste of Ireland's authentic whiskey culture, the rustic setting with leather-clad furniture, Irish coffees and whiskey poured in dazzling glasses, Dylan Whisky Bar is just the place to go. They have over 200 whiskeys that are amongst the world's finest, so if you're a connoisseur, you're in for some amazing delight. They also have an astounding variety of gins, wines, beers and cocktails.

Billy Byrnes Bar and Guesthouse

Billy Byrnes brings an intimate, cozy ambience that was an essence of Irish pubs traditionally. The rustic but flamboyant decor is amazing to enjoy the local craft beers and some finger food. They also serve coffee, hot drinks and beers from around the world. There's also an innovative bus-turned-restaurant called the Bula Bus, that gets a street food vibe and serves fast food cuisines of the world. Billy Byrnes has got a beautiful beer garden seating where smoking is allowed and there's a fireplace.

Left Bank

In operation since 2008, Left Bank is one of the most happening bars in Kilkenny’s. Set in hip, sophisticated environs, the bar has separate VIP areas and top DJs spinning tracks across multiple genres. Patrons can dig into finger food in case they begin to feel the hunger pangs. You can also spend your time listening to the live music performances, lay back in the heated outdoor patio, snug up to the fireplace with your loved one or simply sip on one of the expertly-prepared concoctions. Besides this, Left Bank conducts workshops on preparing cocktails and also provides space for events and private parties. If you are looking for a memorable evening, head to Left bank for a great time.

Matt the Miller

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.
