Matt the Miller's has a terrific look from the outside. It draws you in - you want to be there. We found it fine for drinks. It is extremely large, and the vibe is much more nightclub/bar than pub. That doesn't mean bad at all - just know what to expect when you go in. It was very loud and... More

We visited Matts whilst looking for some good grub after a long trip. We both had the seafood chowder and guineas stew and I have to say we devoured both. Very hearty and warming, perfect for a winter's evening. We were pleasantly surprised to find there was also live music, a proper irish folk musician who played all the well... More

Staff were very efficient. The menu is very appealing. Really good pint of Guinness. We were waiting for 2 more to join us and we got 3 more offers from staff to take orders. After the meal was delivered, same again, came back to check everything was ok a few times. The live music was a lovely touch, two guitarists... More

Well worth the walk through the town to the river at dusk. The food, atmosphere and music were all great. We ate our beef stew, drank guiness and were transported to fairyland with the beautiful acoustic music. I'd recommend it

One of the best bands we saw in Ireland played at Matt the Millers on a Thursday night. The atmosphere was great and the staff friendly and helpful. Didn't eat any of the food, but did drink plenty of the beer. They pour a good Guinness and Kilkenny Draught. I definitely recommend this place if you're looking for some traditional... More

This place was a recommendation for the music but we came for lunch and will be back for the music tonight. Morons took excellent care of us and the experience was excellent!

Highly recommend this spot for a cosy dinner and some traditional music. Excellent attentive bar and floor staff. The Guinness was perfect and the 2 live acts we saw where great, one even sang a Paul Weller song for me. Gets busy for dinner, and rightly so so get there early.
