Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do you allow families with children?
A: Yes, Kitty O’Se’s is a family friendly establishment until late evening, but after 10:00PM it may become too busy and loud for young children.

Q: Does Kitty O’Se’s accept credit cards?
A: Yes, but due to transaction fees we only accept credit cards for bills that are over 15 euro.

Q: What’s in the Cottage Pie?
A: Minced Beef, potatoes, carrots, celery, and rainbows.

Q: What’s the best time to arrive?
A: The pub can become busy, so it’s best to arrive for dinner at around 6:30PM so that music will start while you’re eating. You can then keep your table for the rest of the evening to enjoy after-dinner drinks and musical entertainment.

Q: Who’s the strange looking fellow behind the bar?
A: That hardly narrows the field, but one of them is especially dodgy; we recommend you avoid direct eye contact. If he’s roused he’ll start drawing shamrocks in your Guinness.

Q: Do celebrities ever visit Kitty O’Se’s?
A: Indeed they do! Christy Ring’s cousin once stopped in for a pint.
