Stayed for 2 nights mid-week. Hotel very conveniently situated in the heart of Kilkenny (which is a beautiful place - very clean and full of wonderful buildings and lovely shops. Used the pool (not huge, but clean and reasonably quiet), steam room (a bit sterile-looking but nicely toasty) and jacuzzi (lovely). The room itself was warm and cleaned to a... More

My husband and I stayed at the Kilkenny Ormonde for two nights - Sat and Sun - at the end of last week (June 2015.) First let me say we loved Kilkenny! It is a charming town full of fun pubs and sights. Great place to spend a couple of nights. One of the more interesting aspects of Kilkenny is... More

We were very impressed by this hotel. First of all it is in walking distance of the downtown of beautiful Kilkenny. The Hotel has a nice bar/coffee shop in the lobby. The Hotel staff was very friendly, polite and helpful. Our room was very nice and clean. Wi-fi was relatively fast. Our breakfast was wonderful and lots of choices.

We had a private family function here recently and must thank all the staff, especially Mags. Good value meal and we were looked after in a friendly and efficient manner. This hotel is centrally located and easy to find.

We wanted to stay in town this visit, after a previous trip to the area where we stayed in a lovely guest house about 15 minutes outside of town. We went with this property which is fairly large and had good options for room types. It was OK, nothing special in a positive or negative sense. Location is good for... More

Myself and my partner recently spent a night in the ormonde hotel. We found the staff pleasant and helpful. Food was average. Have stayed in nicer hotels in kilkenny for lower price, but the ormonde is perfectly adequate for a break away, just nothing special.

The Ormonde is a nicely appointed hotel situated very close to Kilkenny Castle and High Street shops. The front desk crew was very helps with great suggestions for places to eat and shop.

Spent one night in the Kilkenny Ormond last weekend with my husband and three children and I would thoroughly recommend it. The family room was really nice and spacious and the staff very friendly and efficient. The breakfast choice was great with the pancakes machine being a big hit with the kids. Lovely leisure centre also. Great location - parking... More
