Billy Byrnes is one of Kilkenny’s most famous public houses, more of a social club than a bar and a popular meeting place for locals young and old with a reputation for good beer, good food and a warm welcome. Billy Byrnes Bar & Restaurant like to keep things relaxed and informal and as one of their guests, you will be automatically granted local status. Whether you are looking for a bit of local colour, some top quality live music, or just a quiet corner to read the paper you will find it at Billy Byrnes.
There are quiet, comfortable, newly refurbished rooms all offering ensuite, TV, tea and coffee making facilities and best of all your own secret stair case that leads straight back to one of the city’s most popular public houses.
Step out onto the street, and you’re already in the heart of the city, just a short stroll through winding medieval streets from the River Nore and all the attractions of historic Kilkenny. Whatever your taste, you’ll find plenty to see and do, including the magnificent Kilkenny Castle and its grounds, the 100ft tall round tower at Canice’s Cathedral, the atmospheric 17th century Rothe House, and the world-famous Kilkenny Design Centre, as well numerous shops, cafés, bars and a couple of Michelin-starred restaurants.
