We stayed here on a Saturday night. The room was very nice and the location was great. Easy walk to the castle and all of the pubs and the Medieval walk. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Parking right across the street also.

We had a night at the Ormonde passing through. What a great hotel, nice rooms, very good staff. Great location and convenient parking. Would definitely recommend. We stayed on a Saturday night which is very busy, but we had no noise disturbance. Highly recommend

5 Star treatment from the time we first hit reception until we left.Nothing was beyond the staff especially the ladies on reception. Would not hesitate in rebooking this hotel. Kilkenny is a fabulous city and the Ormonde is a fabulous hotel.

Stayed for three nights (room only). We had a lovely room, very quiet as requested and it was a very good sized room. We were attending the Kilkenny Arts festival as my daughter was performing. This hotel is right in the heart of downtown Kilkenny and everything is within walking distance. The Black Abbey, St. Canice's Cathedral, Kilkenny Castle, the... More

This is a pleasant hotel, with a nice bar, in a good location. The rooms were plain, but very large and clean. I wish there had been a safe in the room. It was well situated to venture out and explore the city, as well as to walk to Kilkenny Castle. The family dining plan did not offer a lot... More
