A Bit of History

Tynan’s is Kilkenny City’s oldest pub, having been established in 1703, albeit originally as a grocer-pharmacy. In 1919, Michael Tynan took over the premises and converted it into a bar. Its shop-pharmacy heritage is still evident today, given that even as a bar it maintained the shop-pub dual role so common in Ireland in the 20th century. The front bar, into which you enter, still is home to a host of stock drawers labelled to account for the range of supplies and medicines which they would once have held; among them noted are lemon, citron, seeds, salts, nutmeg, cinnamon, chocolate, cloves and almonds.

A Note from the Artist

To my mind, the bar is best experienced during daylight hours when the light streaming in the front windows gives it a special character. If you manage to get a seat in the front as the sun starts to sink but the musicians are on the rise, then you’ve found yourself a little bit of heaven by the banks of the Nore.
