Matt the Miller's bar: kilkenny's buzzing spot

This is one hell of a lively Irish pub...we had a wonderful lunch earlier on the friday of the august bank holiday weekend..great service and we decided to come back later to hear the "KILKENNY'S" a local band play...the pub was full of all types of people singing and dancing what an atmosphere..we were brought out to dance by two lively irish ladies...then a DJ took up where the band left just seemed to keep getting better...we were so sad to stop around we called at 10 am for breakfast the next morning and the pub was as spotless and clean'd never think there was such a "hooley" the night before...i love the kindness we were showen here and we will be back soon...keep up the great work... We will be recommending you to all our friends.!!!

Matt the Miller's pub: party people

Well myself and my girlfriend found this pub on the net and we also hear our friends talk about it..and its everything they said it was...we had lunch and an evening meal which was fablous...the service is excellent given the kitchen is 3 floor's up we were told...the meal's were better than our hotel and thats a we came back at night to find a buzzing 25/30s age group enjoying the live music followed by a really good mix of classic hits and good chart music...we'l be back as soon as we can...a great band on monday night,a pity we had to travel on tuesday morning early....
We have to give them 10 out of 10....
Regards....Jim and Anne

Matt the Miller's bar: Another people meeting pub

Very young crowd in this pub, lots of fun and loud music.

Dress Code They don't seem that fussy but l have discovered like Dublin people like to dress up and look good and this pub is no exception. However you could also dress in jeans and still gain entry to the pub.

Everyone congregates on the ground floor but once you battle through the crowds, make your way upstairs for some oxygen and beer. I would certainly go there again, it's a really friendly chatty bar.
