Food was delicious. Very relaxing atmosphere and Ahmed was an excellent waiter. Very friendly and helpful. Will certainly return.

We were in Kilkenny for the Kilkenomics event and hadn't tried this place. We had fish pie - delicious - and it came with a complementary dish of mussels, salad and chips. All exceptionally good and exceptionally well priced. We went back to their place next door the following day (the Bodega) and had shepherds pie and vegetarian curry and these were super too.

Good food, small town charm, great people My wife and I were stopping through Kilkenny and were looking for a nice little place to eat when we came upon Breathnachs. It seemed like its family ran and owned which was great. Everyone knew everyone in the place which was nice to see. We were recommended a few dishes that were more traditional Irish food which my wife and I requested and both of us were very pleased with the food and service! The lady assisting us at the bar was very nice and a delight to talk to! There were many big screen TVs in the place so if you needed to catch your local sports then this is a great place to visit especially when you are hungry for great food as well! I will definitely return on my next trip!
