  The Pumphouse
by dubrovnik

The Pumphouse is one of those pubs which really caters to an audience.On any one day you can experience a total mishmash of characters from all walks of life.This gives rise to a diverse feel to the pub but always guarantees an atmosphere. Frequented by a youthful crowd this pub has almost become a cult classic in Kilkenny. Dimly lit with wooden finish it has comfortable seating and a reputation for great music.If your looking to escape from the norm or just curious this is always a good pub to try.

The standard of service is great with few flaws.The staff are friendly and accommodating. The Pumphouse also has a pool table and dart board. A sample lunch menu can be seen below.
