ON THE PARADE KILKENNY
The Field bar sits in the centre of Medieval Kilkenny resting in the shadows of its iconic Castle. Established in 1620, as The Castle Tavern, it is one of the city’s oldest Bars boasting both a rich history and a modern vibrance which has made it a mecca for locals and tourists alike. Good food and live Irish music are the staple diversons of the day that all are treated to.
Featuring live Traditional Irish music acts performing from early afternoon to closing with a rich and diverse a la carte menu to choose from its no surprise that The Field has become a visitors delight.Throw in the intriguing tale of the ghost of the former Kings lover still roaming the building nightly and the stage is set to step in to the antiquity of The Field in its present guise as an famous Irish bar which exoudes presence.
A REAL DOWN HOME MUSIC BAR
In a short ten years The Field Bar has become so synonymous with Live Music in Kilkenny that columnists critics and punters alike have dubbed it the “Home of Live Music in Kilkenny”. With acts to suit all tastes Live Music runs from early afternoon to closing each day featuring such big name performers as Rob Strong, Brand New Cadillac, Loose Cannons and The Groove Republic. The music ranges from Rock and Blues to Traditional Irish, Folk and Bluegrass, in short there is something for everybody.

GREAT FOOD @ THE FIELD
SERVED FROM 9AM TO 9PM DAILY
The menu is simple but tasty – a mixture of locally sourced foods including Black Angus meats and fresh seafood from a nearby fishing village – with Fish and Chips, Seafood Chowder, and a Lamb Stew to die for. Food is served from 9am to 9pm both in the ground floor Field Bar and in the upstairs Castle Tavern Medieval Bar and Restaurant which is an entirely separate entity and a throwback to medieval Norman Kilkenny.
