Ristorante Rinuccini


Kilkenny
30/05/2024: A recommended Italian restaurant. Attentive staff. Unfortunately our bottle of wine was corked, but was exchanged with many apologies. The food is simply a poem. However, you should reserve in advance, otherwise you may be turned away. But of course everyone can try their luck.
30/05/2024: Love this place never disappointed Fabulous meal last Sunday.

Hole in the Wall


Kilkenny
24/05/2024: This tiny pub is a real gem, and I only discovered it while searching for a historical hole-in-the-wall spot—it's truly hidden. The owner, a recently retired cardiologist, is a fantastic storyteller. Wishing a happy retirement to the Doc! I wish I could have stayed longer to enjoy more of the "black gold" (Guinness, no doubt). In my opinion, people like Michael and these small, charming pubs are the true essence of Ireland. The honesty, chatty nature, and welcoming approach exemplify pure Irish hospitality. This place embodies the real identity of Ireland and is a must-visit for anyone looking to experience genuine Irish culture.

Rive Gauche


Kilkenny
16/06/2024: Gorgeous quirky restaurant in a great central location near the Castle. Great buzz inside and great choice of food. Striploin steak was delicious and pepper sauce was so peppery which really made it. Chips weren't great but mash potato was beautiful. Pate to start was really sloppy but was so tasty. Not the cheapest restaurant in the town but well worth it for a special treat. Staff were all really friendly and good craic. Lots of great wee pubs nearby for a drink before or after. Can still taste that pepper sauce yummy 😋
27/04/2024: Dined here for dinner after having lunch at Left Bank, which was great! Ordered duck aranchini. Out of this world. Excellent combination of sweet and savory flavor and textures with the crispy fried arancini and mango, ginger and bit of remounted. A truly excellent dish! Also had house soup, a mushroom and leek I believe. It was a smooth soup, very flavorful and offered with bread as well, which was nice to complement. Perhaps a tad salty for those sensitive but didn’t diminish from the dish overall. I had the new lamb shoulder with mash potato, broccolini that was super tender and other seasoning. The lamb was great, crispy outside, bit of the succulent fat that I love, the gravy was nice and little pearl onions. A great hearty dish and a solid portion that could satisfy a big guy. The prawn and scallop in a vermouth cream sauce with Parmesan sauce, truffle, capers was just okay. The scallops and shrimp were soft, as though they were tossed into the sauce raw and just simmered. No searing, so the texture was just very soft, didn’t get much of the truffle oil flavor but the sauce itself wasn’t bad. It was mild, Parmesan flavor and we added the side potatoes to it to soak it up. The dessert of bread pudding with cranberry, vanilla sauce and ice cream was a great finish! Staff was attentive and great decor. Still highly recommend and 5 star.

Butcher


Kilkenny
03/06/2024: A pleasant restaurant with an excellent location in the center of Kilkenny city. The staff was friendly and ready to help when choosing food. We chose a 9oz fillet steak with a side dish (roast vegetable with Kale). The meat was juicy, freshly prepared, the vegetables were also soft and delicious. The ambience is extremely nicely decorated. My recommendation for this restaurant!
