A peaceful getaway in the city centre

Names after the iconic Statham-Ford Special racing car, our Bar & Restaurant pays tribute to the Statham's Garage which designed and built this award-winning car on the site where we now stand.

Our laid back style and hospitality, great selection of wines and cocktails, live entertainment and our city centre location makes us a popular choice for guests and Kilkenny residents alike. Whether you’re popping in for a coffee and a homemade scone, brunch after a lazy morning, catching up with friends over afternoon tea or with a bite to eat in the bar, enjoying a romantic dinner for two, celebrating a special occasion with a private party or looking for a great night out with live music every weekend, Statham’s Bar and Restaurant has just the spot for you.

Our American European fusion food philosophy is all about bringing together the best of two cuisines to create new and delicious menus for our guests. Statham’s kitchen team combines American and European traditions and techniques to bring a new level of creativity and flavour to the plate. Dishes like Surf & Turf with Irish Black angus fillet steak and award-winning brown Cork lump crab, Barbary duck breast with duck leg confit and grilled pear, a deconstructed Snickers Tart and the best Crème Brûlée in Kilkenny paired with a sensational cocktail menu ensures a great time in Statham’s.
