Anocht @ Kilkenny Design Centre

Anocht - Irish for 'tonight'

Ever since 1989 in Kilkenny Design Centre we have served great food, fresh every day. On Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays we transform our upstairs space into a relaxing, atmospheric room fit for the finest evening dining.

Anocht serves an amazing menu inspired by the wealth of the Kilkenny Food Trail.

Lighting creates mood, linen drops create intimate spaces. Food is served on specially commissioned stoneware by Castle Arch Pottery and walls are adorned with extraordinary work by Irish artist Kate Buckley.

Created by chef Paul Cullen, in conjunction with the established Kilkenny Design Centre's kitchen team, the menu is a testament to the quality of Kilkenny's food producers. The offering is modern Irish and draws together the best of local products with dishes like Kilmore Quay potted prawn and crabmeat, Paddy White's rib eye steak and prawn and crabmeat with Highbank Orchard Syrup.

Sourced from independent artisan wine growers, the wines are supplied by le Caveau wine merchants in Kilkenny. These growers work their land with passion and respect for the environment. They believe that hard work in the vineyards results in healthy, delicious fruits which, in turn, require very little intervention in the winery. Take a look at our wine list here.

We have a full drinks licence and an extensive bar selection including a cocktail menu and local beers from O'Hara's, cider from Highbank Orchards and various liqueurs and aperitifs.
