I visited Marble City Tearooms on Sunday with a friend, I got the stuffed peppers with goats cheese and my friend had the BBQ salmon. The portions are generous and the food is delicious. I would highly recommend others to eat here. 😊

Visited The Marble City Bar three mornings in a row during the wonderful Kilkenny Roots Festival 2017. Service is superb, the food jolly good and the atmosphere lovely. The upstairs bar is beautiful, so elegant.

We stopped in here on a Saturday, after enjoying a lovely morning shopping in Kilkenny. I hate writing a bad review, but the service here was absolutely shocking. One gentleman is particular was down right rude, to the point that we felt had personally offending him in someway. From slamming down our pots of tea to turning his face in... More
