The Top Bar


The top floor of Kytelers Inn houses a large and atmospheric space called The Top Bar. Reminiscent of a Baronial Hall, it can be configured to suit a wide range of events including wedding receptions, family and office parties, product launches, corporate receptions, meetings, music and literary performances and it has even become a theatre during Kilkenny Arts Week. The Top Bar has many quirky features including a Church Pulpit which has a new life as a DJs box, period artworks and split level seating.

At weekends it becomes a Late Bar with music and the hub of the Kilkenny social scene.
