Okay, close your eyes, and picture a local pub as seen in Irish films. The Field Tavern on the Parade of the Kilkenny Castle completely fits the bill. Outside, the Field is clad with honey colored wood, has a glass front of casement windows, and a black sign with brass lettering. There is a petite sidewalk seating area enclosed by... More

I was in Kilkenny on St Patricks day with a friend after the parade we wanted to go somewhere for a drink. The music from the live band in the field enticed us in the door.

Stay away from this pub. Was in with a group of friends and we were told to leave for absolutely no reason. Very rude owner who was on a power trip. Spend your money somewhere else.

Not much to say. Great music and a good dance night. Prices are reasonable. There is nothing that stands out. Just another pub.

The field is a tiny little pub smack in the middle of the town, I love this place for lunch or a bit of music on the night out.

We had a blast at The Field. The evening started with dinner upstairs. We had a mix of pub food, and everyone was happy. Was the food memorable? No, but only because the owner came up and talked to us so long. We discovered that his friend has a pub in a city we frequent, we shared info and ...... More

Full of atmosphere and staff pleasant. Live music , most definitely worth a visit for a drink. Small venue so probably not an all night location.
