Stayed here on tuesday night. The staff at reception were lovely and got us checked in nice and quick. Rooms are nice and clean. Might need slight updating as the carpet was fraying the whole way down the corridor from the lift. Dinner in the hotel bar was a disapointment. I got the curry and it tasted from a packet... More

We have stayed here as a base to explore the local area of kilkenny and waterford. Location wise it's perfect as it's not right in the centre but it's a short 10 minute walk to get there. Good parking facilities. The staff are helpful and friendly. The rooms are spacious, clean and modern. The breakfast includes serve yourself continental as... More

I stayed in the hotel back in January and I have to say I absolutely loved it. I went for the deluxe room and it was absolutely beautiful. There was a lovely big bathroom as well. We ate in the restaurant and the food was fabulous could not fault it at all. We also ate in the bar on our... More

We arrived in Kilkenny on all Ireland football final day. Probably not something that holds a great deal of interest in Kilkenny. ( if you are not Irish reading this ask a local what I'm talking about). Anyway we checked in and got to our room. It was a really nice airy room with plenty of space. Anyway I watched... More

Very good hotel if you are on business. Rooms spacious, otherwise nothing special, with shower-in-bath rather than walk-in. Heating turned off at night but I asked for an electric heater and it was quickly provided. Breakfast buffet very limited and congested, but excellent pancakes! Bar quite soulless. Dinner very good (especially the hake!) but very very limited wine and beer... More

Wouldn't stay here again. Shoddy and dated... Food was reasonable... Will go elsewhere the next time I'm in Kilkenny. Nothing special, expensive for what you get... Room had shoddy painted plywood in bedrooms for the tea and coffee, the handle was scummy.

I booked a 2 night stay through living social and usually don't expect amazing things when I've booked through a discount site. However, Hotel Kilkenny was one of the best stays we have had. We stayed in a deluxe room which was lovely, the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was a good size. We also had a balcony... More

Beautiful town!Hotel is situated in 15 min walking distance from castle and city centre. Very nice and helpful staff, friendly and professional!Perfect swimming pool, good food and interior design.
