Welcome to Malzards Bar
At the heart of the village of Stoneyford in Kilkenny is the Malzard-O’Gradys Pub and at the heart of this pub is Fred Malzard; a man who knows how to bring together a local community in a lively celebration of storytellers, musicians, hurling enthusiasts (young and old) and experienced pint pullers.
Dating back to 1789, the Malzard-O’Gradys Pub has been in the family of its current owner- Fred Malzard- for over five generations and 200 plus years. Originally, the business was started by James (“The Boss”) O’Grady, on the main street of Stonyford Village, County Kilkenny, to service a population that had risen locally due to the opening of a large woollen mill. In 1894, Fred’s great grandmother married a Malzard from the Channel Islands. When Fred’s grandfather- Alfie Malzard- returned to Stonyford to manage the pub, the Malzard name was added to the pub front. Intriguing history aside, this pub is all about family and community.
