Good location in the centre of Kilkenny, everything within walking distance. The only negative my husband & I have about the Ormonde hotel is the breakfast is not a tranquil experience.

We found it a little hard to find though, is a very busy small downtown and Ormande street wasn't well market and is just a small cobblestone street off a more main street. The hotel was in a very good location, about a 2 minute... More
