Beautiful hotel to stay in and the breakfast is great but the highlight here is the Restaurant. I had the best Fillet steak in my life here. It was cooked medium to perfection With beautiful veg and mash. The deserts and starters were great too but the steak was just WOW cant wait to go back again

Lovely hotel and friendly service. We stayed 2 adults and 2 children at the end of August. Hotel was very busy but service was excellent and efficient. The only things that let our holiday here down were uncomfortable beds and pillows were so hard. Dinner in the restaurant was very disappointing, we had it as part of deal so was... More

I travelled to Kilkenny by train with three other adults who have disabilities and stayed in the Kilkenny Ormond. It was right in the middle of town, We had any amount of access to the leisure club which was fab for the girls. The staff there were so friendly and helpful, When menus were handed out my client's were not... More

The Ormonde is a newer hotel near to central Kilkenny. They have a lovely bar/parlor area and a few restaurants as well. The hotel is newer and in good condition. There is no air conditioning and given that it was rather warm the day we were there, that made for an uncomfortable night's rest. The beds were also very firm.... More

The hotel is perfectly situated for wandering around the town and the rooms are a food size... Just felt a little tired and not clean. The sports facility was amazing as it is part of a sports club including a full size pool with lanes. The redemptive feature was the brunch... One of the beat we had all week while... More

Stayed in this hotel twice now and I look forward to a third time. The staff are extremely friendly and will go the extra mile to help you. The hotel itself is beautiful, it's clean and very relaxing and as it's situated in the city is so close to everything. I could go on for ages about how much I... More

Very pleasant stay for two nights, good sized rooms for a family of four. Staff were helpful (especially in the restaurant and bar) and breakfast was good. The central location is very convenient for the castle etc. although the flipside is that it was a little noisy outside (burglar alarm in the middle of the night and motorbikes once or... More

Just taking a few minutes out to review the Kilkenny Ormonde. A small group of 8 (middle aged...cough) men headed down there last weekend for an over-nighter in a futile attempt to convince the youngest of the group (32) to give serious thought to his impending wedding plans. Some might refer to it as a stag but we're well past... More

Recently stayed in this hotel for two nights.The hotel is very centrally located in the heart of Kilkenny. We parked our car up and ended up not using it for the whole weekend as we were easily able to walk around the city. Although the hotel does not have parking they offer very good value in the adjacent multi-storey car... More
