    Anna Conda: My Anna Conda don't want none ....

    by TxDevil Written Dec 18, 2007

    I don't remember much about the inside of this pub - but the beer garden out back gets very crowded. It's a late bar (at least on the Friday that I was there). And the people that frequent this place are gems. I had the time of my life this night. Met some really kick ass people and talked for hours on end. Again, no Newcastle - only found it in Dublin - but Smithwick's soothed my agony. haha. Wish I would have paid more attention to the music and actual pub - but, I was busy.

    HAHA.

    Will return in the future.

    Dress Code: Casual.

    Matt the Miller's: Just Over the Bridge

    by SabrinaSummerville Written Sep 22, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Matt the Miller's is just one of Kilkenny's many landmark pubs. It's also probably one of the largest and is indeed hard to miss - the big pink building just over the bridge facing towards the castle.

    They do great barfood and in the night it's a haven of loud music, sometimes live bands, and plenty of activity and fun.

    Marble City Bar: Traditional Pub

    by sirenna Updated Jul 19, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    "The Marble City" is one of Kilkenny's many names, arising from the vein of black marble found here. My sister and I stopped in at this little pub for a quick drink one afternoon, and found a quiet, friendly crowd - mostly elderly gents. I'm told it livens up at night though.
    Kilkenny high street is lined with colourful little pubs - it's so tempting to pop into each one for a jar, though you'd be in a right ol' state if you were to do that!

    The Anna Conda: Traditional Irish Music

    by Sylvander Written Oct 2, 2004

    Desperate for some live Irish music (harder to find than you might think), we found what we were looking for at the Anna Conda one Friday night. The music started around 9.30pm (which is fairly typical) but you need to get there a fair bit earlier if you want a good seat. The Anna Conda is long and narrow and if you end up at the far side of the bar you wont hear much.
    If you're looking for live music, just ask around in town and check out the flyers in the pub windows. Other live music venues include the Pumphouse, Kytelers, Matt the Millers, Rafter Dempseys...

  • Coda: disco of the future?

    by arthur_dent Updated May 5, 2004

    The owners of this fine establishment are not afraid to jump up and shout "Disco is not a dirty word!" Coda offers a world of vibrant music - funk, disco, dub, hip-hop. You name it it's here. Admission is generally around the 10euro mark, but you get the very best in dj's, drink, and if you're lucky, live music. I don't know who the owners of this place are, but it's clear to see that they've got it going on. Drinks are expenxive, and the bouncers can be a little unpleasant, but this club is like a badly built Russian space shuttle - once it gets going there's no coming back.

    Dress Code: You've got to make some kind of effort, to prove you're not a knacker.

    Club51: Knacker Haven

    by caribou_ire Written May 2, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Club 51 is attached to the 'super pub' O'Faoilans. It has recently been revovated and now it has the appearence of something you'd see in a James Bond movie. The laether furniture and furry walls, however beautiful cannot hide the fact that the place is swarming with people looking for trouble. Perhaps the owner thought by doing the place up, he would distract people's attention from the ever existant fight going on, or the unconscious drunk in the corner puking all over himself. He was wrong. Fun can be had there, yet a certain degree of caution must be had. Although this can be said about any nightclub in the country, Club51 seems to me to have that extra edge. Exciting for some, not for me.

    Dress Code: not the most strict place around. shoes would help.

    The Irish are renowned for their hospitality and so a night in one of the pubs can't be beaten. Many will have traditional entertainment - and more often than not, someone will start an impromptu singalong
    Beware of the guinness - if you're not used to it.

    Cleere's: Parliament Street Pubs

    Parliament Street is just one long line of pubs. I'd recommend the Pumphouse, Cleere's or the Widow's.

    I drank here so often the summer after Leaving Cert that I really should have shares in the place. It's a popular place with 16-19 years olds.

    Seeing as we were all underage at the time, we couldnt visit the brewery. This beer used to be known as Smithwicks, but it was eventually changed to "Kilkenny"
