Food excellent both breakfast and dinner staff were very friendly and helpful. Bar was cold and very dirty - crumbs and uncleaned tables. Bedrooms were very comfortable and clean. Parking available and just a short walk to city centre.

I spent a weekend here with my girlfriend, which she surprised me with. I was a little weary of course, not knowing what to expect. My fears were unfounded, as this hotel was immaculate. The room was huge with a tv, safe, ample tea making facilities, iron & board, a table with two chairs, and large wardrobes and lockers. The... More

We stayed in Hotel Kilkenny for 2 nights. We were well looked after. Nice big room and spacious as we had a travel cot. Staff were very friendly. Lovely pool and gym. Breakfast was lovely too as you could order what you desired. Only a 10-15 min walk into city centre. Would definitely recommend staying here if your coming to... More

Stayed here on a family break. 2 adults and 2 children in a triple room with extra foldaway bed. The room was pretty standard, spacious enough but extremely stuffy. We were on a ground level floor which we were delighted with at first until we realised the windows were locked (maybe screwed) shut. We tried to open the window to... More

Just back from a weekend stay with family which was lovely. Efficient check in, spacious rooms and a friendly welcoming team made our stay really relaxing. Thanks to Laura at Front Desk who handled our booking and looked after us so well. We look forward to visiting again.

Helpful staff, nice large room off of the orchard, good full breakfast, close walk to town and excellent service. There was a kid's activity room where children could be supervised - we didn't use this but I made note of it. Good parking, live entertainment in the evening -- nice stay.

Hotel was nice, bathrooms seemed old and could use updating. The modern decor was nice, but things seemed worn. Good bed, good breakfast. Expect about a 15 minute walk to city center and 25 to train station. All walkable but not directly in city center, safe to walk at night.

Spent a night at the Hotel Kilkenny with a friend. 4pm check in is late. Most hotels are 2pm. Because of the late check in we rearranged our day to arrive around 6. There was one person on reception and we stood around for 15 minutes but there were five people waiting at reception. We needed to leave as we... More

We stayed 3 nights in Hotel Kilkenny due friends wedding. Staff was very friendly and breakfast was good. Location at walking distance for the city but not in the center was convenient. But the room level compared to the price just wasn't as good as in many other hotels we have stayed in Ireland. Room was big, clean and had... More
