This hotel was a little tired, however, the service was very good and the location excellent. The pool and leisure facilities were good. We has a room on the third floor at the end of the corridor which was a great location as it was very quiet. The cold buffet breakfast was very limited but the hot breakfast was fine.... More

Located two blocks from the castle in the downtown area, this hotel is within walking distance of many places (most of which were closed when we arrived after 6 p.m.). We were there during a heat wave with temps reaching 80 degrees F. The lack of air conditioning made our room a bit warm early on. The fire doors in... More

We stayed last week, and have stayed before, but never reviewed. The hotel is in a brilliant location right in the heart of Kilkenny, close to the castle, St. Canice's round tower, shops, restaurants and pubs. Parking is directly across from the hotel, €5 per day, excellent value. The room was spotless, the breakfast menu had everything you could ask... More
