This accommodation is suitable for groups of people who are coming to Kilkenny for the night life or those on a budget. I stayed in this hotel as I was attending a wedding across the road in the New Park Hotel and it was ideal for that. The Brog Maker is very good value for its location, however, I wouldn't... More

Here for a birthday party with a large mixed group. Ok so the venue is basic enough, rooms are basic, but for 30 euro per person you can't be expecting luxury. Food was very tasty and well priced. Staff were the best and most helpful people. The place had a wonderful atmosphere with staff even participating in sing songs and... More

While our room seemed nice at first glance, further inspection led to the discovery of about 50 small flies across the bed and bathroom. However, we slept well as the bed was comfortable and the hotel was quiet. We were advised that we could check out at 8:00am the next morning as we had a flight to catch at Dublin... More

Situated just 20 mins walk from the city centre, this gem of a place must be visited. The hotel offers 14 comfortable nicely furnished en-suite rooms. Very popular for week-end visitors to Kilkenny. A large complimentary car-park along with excellent food makes this venue popular with locals and visitors alike. Room rates are very attractive and price includeds a full... More

Vile, dirty hotel. Food wasn't much either. The staff were very friendly and made an otherwise terrible experience ok. ideal location for the centre of town. but due to the psychedelic wallpaper that made my eyes hurt and the smell of damp in the room was overpowering. Never again. Cheap but certainly not cheerful

We stayed here for one night in March and thank God it was only for one night because if we had of booked in for two, I would not have stayed a second. The room was filthy, tiles coming of bathroom wall. Laminate floor outdated. Curtains stained with mildew. The "T.V" was ancient and 14" screen with two hazy channels!!... More

I stayed here for a hen and would have to say that this is what the hotel us geared towards. It's no ritz or 4 star hotel but what you do get is a very welcoming and friendly place to stay. The staff couldn't have been friendlier . The rooms are not great at all. The shower didn't work at... More

We stayed here for a hen party. Found all the staff so helpful and friendly.The rooms are quite basic but when all you want is somewhere to rest your head its ideal. The food was gorgeous and such good value for money.

Stayed here last week for a wedding just outside town. Ideal. Great breakfast in the morning, handy parking, tea & coffee in the rooms and a walk from the town centre. The staff couldn't be more help. A pleasure to stay at a good price and great portions of good pub grub.

Myself & my husband are regular eaters here on a Sunday with our kids and I can honestly say that I've never been to a restaurant who finds it so hard to cook chips!!
