Our group from Texas had been touring Ireland for a week, and came across Paris Texas Bar and Restaurant near the end of our trip in Kilkenny. We were a little worn out on traditional Irish food and were missing BBQ and TexMex from home, so we thought we would give Paris Tx Bar and Restaurant a try for lunch. Being native Texans our expectations were low, but wow, were we surprised! The BBQ pulled pork was amazing, as well as everything else our group of 8 had that day. Staff was very friendly and the place is just beautiful inside - much nicer than anything you would find in the real Paris, Tx! Wish we had more time in Kilkenny and we would have come back that evening to the pub as it looked outstanding as well.Will definitely be back next time through. Highly recommended for anyone wanting a taste of authentic US southwestern cuisine - they do it right.

Wir hatten Hunger und sind durch Zufall in dem Lokal gelandet. Unglaublich lecker, große Auswahl, super Service und faires Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Wir waren sogar überrascht, wie günstig s war, obwohl es nur wenige Minuten vom Schloss entfernt liegt. Ein super Tip, wenn man unkompliziert sehr gut essen möchte.

Quite a great place to enjoy Texan food. So flavourful I drank a regular coke and thought it was plain. A little pricey but the waiters were so nice when looking after me and my sister when having our food. We didn’t book a reservation, and we were seated no problem 😌
