The home of great live music and even better Guinness!! Ryan's Bar is a traditional Irish bar with a modern twist. With an excellent outdoor seated area to the rear you can listen to live music all year round. When it comes to live music entertainment you wont find much better.
Ryan's Bar can be found at the heart of any festival weekend. Kilkenny plays hosts to some of Irelands best festivals, the Tradfest over St. Patrick's Weekend, the Roots Festival in May, the AKA Fringe shadowing Kilkenny Arts Festival in August are just some of the events to be found in Kilkenny City throughout the year.
Andrew Ryan's has been a public house for over one hundred and fifty years and has had rooms to rent for many of those years, mostly to farmers and livestock dealers who attended the nearby Fair Green for the markets held there.
