The food, the rooms, the staff and just the location itself is what makes this a gem. There really was nothing in the hotel that I could fault. It is kept clean and tidy at all times and caters to all ages. I will go back.

We stayed for one night in the Hotel Kilkenny and everything was fine. The check in was fine, the girl checking us was friendly but seemed a bit flustered. The room was nice but the bathroom looked jaded. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was fine - nothing special. There was plenty of staff on so service was... More

I stayed for one night in January for my sisters hens, I was the organiser and have to say from start to finish was treated brilliant. Reservations couldnt be more helpful in dealing with my group booking and when we arrived we were given lovely rooms. We had organised a private function room for the first part of our night...

The room was spacious and clean with comfortable bedding. Breakfast is really nice. Help yourself to fruit, yogurt, cereals and breads and then request one of their many available cooked to order plates. Great service. All staff we encountered were terrific. If you are without a car be aware that it's about 15 minutes to walk to the center of... More

I had my fingers crossed that the positive Tripadvisor ratings were justified but I needn't have worried. Plenty of parking space. Staff were courteous and helpful. My single room was larger than expected with plenty of space to work and a comfortable bed. Big bathroom was well equipped. I preferred a casual bar dinner so chose not to dine in... More
