Just stayed 3 of the most relaxing night of the past years. Staff couldn't of been nicer, namely Lorna, Kieron and Michael in the Pure restaurant. Only one major failing is lack of aircon in the rooms. Weather was sweltering at night and not enough fans to go around

We really liked this hotel. Very relaxing and comfortable. It was really nice to have music at night to listen to and also a swimming pool, sauna and spa to relax in. We were only here for one night but it felt like more. The breakfast was the only thing that could be improved on.

My husband and I stayed in Hotel Kilkenny for a one night getaway. No fuss was made by the friendly receptionist Claire about our early arrival and we received a complimentary upgrade to a deluxe room without asking! The room was spacious with a small garden area. We were also provided with robes and slippers. The leisure area was really... More

Dear Chahill, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with the Trip Advisor community. As the weather in Ireland has been fantastic unfortunately it does have its draw backs, as we are not used to this climate, there is not much demand for air conditioning in the rooms. I am delighted to read that your recent stay... More

It's a modern business hotel and doesn't have a lot of charm. But it's well equipped and clean. Our room faced west and, with no air con, was extremely hot (even at 11pm). The reception staff provided a fan though so that helped. Breakfast service was slow. We were seated and then had to wait 10 mins to be asked... More

We were here for a business meeting and just hired a room for the morning. As usual we had ordered tea/coffee/biscuits at the start of the meeting and we were provided with plates of the most scrumptious home baked cookies, that simply melted in the mouth. All the attendees commented on the quality. Later, we had lunch in the bar... More
