"Stag Party"

Myself and 20 of the lads stayed at Lanigans hostel and were down for a pub tour in Kilkenny, but thanks to the treatment we got in Lanigans Bar we ended up staying the whole weekend there. Breakfast and the 10oz steak were savage and the drink deals are what kept us there. Thanks a million lads see you soon Paul Stag party Cork

"Lanigans great pub"

Stayed at Lanigans Hostel which in itself was great with nothing compared to the crack I had in Lanigans Bar, It is located in the midddle of the city, staff were full of fun with great special offers on drinks, after a top notch rock band the DJ kicked in and we drank and danced into the early hours, the only thing wrong is that the night had to end .........Michelle
