Great location in the city center. We parked our car in to Q parking hall opposite the hotel. It's 5€/day and you pay it to reception when you are checking out. Swimming pool was great for morning swim. Room needs an update, but it was clean. Friendly service.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights - 11-15 July. Positives are 1. the location - perfect - just around the corner from the castle and numerous pubs with great music and fantastic restaurants. 2. The gym and swimming pool - great, both a good size and very well maintained. 3. the cleaning and breakfast staff - extremely courteous... More

Spent two midweek nights in Jul 15. Got a very good deal on Hotels Combined for Euro 113 cheaper than all other sites for a 'standard' room. Was a bit worried, because of the cheap price we got, that we might have been allocated the linen closet but our worries were unfounded. We got a lovely room with king size... More

I have stayed with my wife and daughter in the Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel on more than one occasion. It is very central to this wonderful city. Just a short walk in most cases to everything Kilkenny City has to offer. Car parking is just across the road. The hotel itself never fails to satisfy. The staff are friendly and efficient.... More

Really enjoyed our stay in the Kilkenny Ormonde, really friendly staff and a comfortable room..Good bar food, the staff were under immense pressure on the Sunday morning at breakfast time because of the large numbers staying in the hotel but they coped really well and treated everyone with respect.

I enjoyed my stay at Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel; however, I believe their information to be a bit misleading. They claim castle views but there are not many other views than the parking deck across the street. The restaurant is good and the location is great but don't go for views. When getting to the hotel follow signs to the Ormonde... More
