    Matt the Miller's pub.: Fine entertainment and decent food.

    by pfsmalo Written Jan 2, 2013

    Right on the corner of Lower John street and John's Quay, with two big bouncers on the door there was no risk of the over-enthusiastic Hurling supporters gate-crashing. The main bar is at ground floor level with the band further back on a raised podium. Just behind this bar is a staircase that takes you up a floor to the eating area. There is also a small bar up here for those that want a bit more quiet. Even when the band played a couple of rock or country numbers we were able to speak to each other without problems.

    We took the roast-beef specials and mash each, I had a couple of pints of Guinness plus half of lager and it came to just 28€ for the lot. Cheap!!

    by evaly Written Mar 26, 2013

    Probably the best best restaurant in Kilkenny quality wise. They have a great selection and everything is cooked perfectly. The prices are great for what you get. Highly recommended.

    Favorite Dish: The duck- perfectly cooked, falls off the bone

  • The Gourmet Store: The best sandwich

    by evaly Written Mar 26, 2013

    A small deli on high street, The Gourmet store serves, by far, the best sandwiches/paninis/wraps in Ireland. As the title suggests all of there sandwiches are made with the finest ingredients and at €3.50 a sandwich, it's amazing value. I simple cannot rave enough, a must eat.

    Favorite Dish: The Florence Panini, to die for

    The Fig Tree Cafe: Excellent café in the town centre

    by Flying.Scotsman Written Feb 27, 2014

    An excellent place with friendly staff for a light lunch. We had scrambled eggs and a BLT (with lots of b!). For those few people who don't know, a BLT is a bacon lettuce and tomato sandwich. It is on the High Street, so it's very convenient if you are sightseeing. It has a 4.5/5 rating on Tripadvisor. See:
