The Ormond is a nice hotel and centrally placed. The rooms are pleasing and in the restaurant both the food and service are excellent. Kilkenny is the chosen haunt of 'hen parties', many of whom stay at the Ormonde. Short skirts, big bums and 'Kiss Me Quick' hats are in evidence. Drunken revellers awoke us at 2. 3 and 4... More

I have been a regular visitor to Kilkenny over the years and at one time or another I have stayed in most hotels there. The town has a very high standard in all aspects of hospitality and entertainment. I would have to say that the Ormonde sticks it's head a little higher over an already very tall parapet. We recently... More

I was treated to a couple of days in the Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel this September for my birthday and must admit I loved everything about this hotel and City. The location could not be any better as it is right in the heart of the city. The staff were so professional and friendly and the cleanliness of the hotel was... More

We stayed 3 mid-week nights B & B, one evening meal. Hotel was in an ideal location, food was good. Staff were lovely. Got a great price too which was an added bonus. The meal at night was particularly good.

Spent one night at this property. The location is ideal. The Kilkenny castle is just around the corner from the hotel. The lobby is well appointed, very modern. Upon arrival into my room, one of the white bath towels hanging in the shower had big black scuff marks all over it, like someone used it to dry car tires. You... More

First impression when walking into the hotel was brilliant. Staff were very professional and helpful. Rooms were clean, airy and very comfortable. Hotel was right on top of the car park, and just a very short walk to the historic Kilkenny castle which is well worth a visit.

Returned for a mid week break to this excellent hotel recently and was not disappointed. It really does tick all the boxes, friendly staff, spotlessly clean rooms, wonderful breakfast, perfect location for shopping and exploring other restaurants and bars. However the comfortable surroundings, cheerful staff and wide choice of beverages mean you wouldn't really have any reason to go out... More

We are a family of 4 and spent one night at the KilKenny Ormonde. Although we loved exploring the town and the castle we won't be staying at this hotel in the future, despite its very central location. I would definitely look for somewhere else. We had a family room at an extortionate rate of €205 for one night. I... More

Stayed for one night in early September at the Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel as we travelled around Irleand... The hotel was very nice, in a great location less than than a 5 minute walk to the Kilkenny Castle and the area shopping and restaurants... The reception staff were simply amazing, keeping our luggage stored for us as we arrived pretty early... More
