From the moment we stepped inside you can see the place is well managed . Staff were attentive from the moment we walked in. I had the burger and it was amazing to be frank. It is a little overpriced on the wine side but it is a great place

Location of this place is great and it is one of few places that actually has any sort of view. Guests that usually go there are not my cup of tea bud interior is appealing to me so I keep coming back for solo, peace and quiet time.

Recently visited The Left Bank (twice!) on a visit to the city. We went in on a Sunday night for a few drinks and loved it so much we went back the next day. It's a fantastic building from the outside, as it was once the old Bank of Ireland in the city. Inside is beautifully decorated with dim lighting.... More

We popped in today for a bite to eat. Thankfully there weren't too many there so we could sit anywhere. The bar is very spacious and cosy. Loved the open fire. Menu was ok. I had the burger which was nice. Our waiter was very friendly and efficient.

The left bank is well worth a visit while in Kilkenny, so many different areas, lovely open fire to relax and have a coffee or later during the night to have a dance and some good music.

This is a stunning building that has become a bar/restaurant after being the local bank. Floor to ceiling bars, dark wood brass etc. adorns this place which seems pretty popular with the locals. Unfortunately the restaurant portion was closed for 2 weeks when we were there in January as the entire restaurant was on shut down after the Christmas period.
