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

Just an overnight stay but we found this hotel to be clean and comfortable and within a short stroll of the busy town centre. Lovely cooked breakfast too with plenty of choice. The staff were friendly and were helpful when we asked advice on which Italian restaurant to choose in the town. Coffee with sandwiches and scones with cream served... More

We stayed here midweek, Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Greeted by reception staff who were very friendly. Our deluxe room on the third floor was very clean and well laid out. I agree with previous guests in relation to the cleanliness of the carpet in the hallways. They aren't filthy dirty by any means but could do with a good Hoover.... More

I was extremely happy with the facilities available in the hotel. Great spa facilities. Spacious even though the hotel was full it never seemed crowded. Very quite during the night for those staying for work commitments. Service a little slow in the bar area around around tea time.

Do not waste your money on this hotel. Supposedly a 4 star hotel it was certainly not 4* standard and I felt it was a complete rip-off. Upon departure of the hotel at 1pm I was really appalled at being charged €40 for an extra hour late check out.  Whilst not only has this never happened to me before with... More

The hotel is nicely located just outside the city and therefore doesn't suffer from late night visitors on the street like some city centre hotels. The rooms are nicely decorated but the bathrooms could do with investment and a little more attention paid to the worn items in the room. If you are not spending all day in your room,... More

There are some good and not so good issues with Hotel Kilkenny. I will start with the rather bad. - lack of air conditioning. I must admit to being dismissive of other reviewers who complained about lack of a/c. Sure this is Ireland, I thought. No need for a/c. Well talk about Karma!! It was sweltering in the room, making... More
