Attended a wedding here at the weekend and I'm most glad that it wasn't my wedding day which the hotel, in my opinion, botched. Firstly with the match on the call to dinner was delayed which was fair enough and expected. However we were all sat in the ballroom at ten to 7 ready for our meal. Well we were... More

Dear Reviewer, Unfortunately the center criticism of your experience is based on the time it took Hotel Kilkenny to serve the wedding meal. Your review is fundamentally wrong, very misleading to the reader and incredibly unfair to the people who invited you to their wedding and the management and staff who attended to the wedding. The All Ireland Hurling final... More

When we stayed, we found the breakfast staff were pushing us through and not worth the money. The bed was uncomfortable, we would give this place 4 out of 10. Been in many hostels with better services and food. Would never use this hotel or chain again!

There was a wedding on in the Hotel on both nights of our stay and we definitely would not have noticed any difference in service. We would... More

The KILKENNY HOTEL is an excellent property and the staff could not have been more helpful. We had a wonderful stay and would recommend this hotel to travellers from near and far. The food was also very good and the rooms are spacious and well appointed. A great place for a stay in one of Ireland's most walkable cities.

Went here on a course. Was put up as part of the faculty. The hotel was very cute and quite eclectic. The staff were lovely and the town was beautiful. I must admit i didn't spend a huge amount of time in the hotel but the room was very comfortable and fit for purpose. Overall i had a good experience.

I was a bit worried that this hotel may be a bit far from the city center, but it was at most a 10 minute walk to the castle and the area around it. The hotel is nice, good rooms, lots of towels, comfortable beds. Low shower pressure as in all hotels we stayed in in Ireland so can't really... More
