4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Had two great nights with the family recently. The staff couldnt have been nicer or more helpful. The kids club was excellent with a wonderful girl called Maria in charge. The bar food was just ok. Breakfast very good. Hotel central so everywhere within walking distance. Leisure centre great for the kids.

Whilst planning to stay at a nearby resort, we decided to extend our stay with a night in Kilkenny city itself. Utilised some Tesco Clubcard Tokens and booked a night at the Ormonde. Total cost for us €30 for the night. The Receptionist, on our arrival initially didn't know that. If she had, I may have expected her attitude. No... More
