Lenehan’s – 10 Barrack Street, Kilkenny City

Lenehans is the sort of pub that becomes extremely busy on a Monday morning for no particular reason. The pub still derives good business from teachers, nurses and clergy in the locality, as well as the soldiers in the nearby barracks and workers from the Labour Exchange. Jim likes the fact they are off the beaten track.
