Stayed for one night, room was lovely, clean & spacious. Had the usual fry up the next morning and no complaints there either. Great location, not even a 2 minute walk into the town. Staff were lovely, very friendly. Nice little bar aswell although we only stayed for one before headed into the town. Will definitely stay here again when... More

Stayed here for 2 nights, it's not the ritz but that's not what we wanted so it was perfect. Rooms are basic but they we're clean which is important. Cannot praise the food enough- portions are very big and you get breakfast regardless of what time u get up- doesn't have the usual 10am finish time like most places. If... More

We stayed here after a Wedding. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was super and very reasonably priced. The bedroom was comfortable but a little basic. I would highly recommend this place.

Stayed down at the weekend as I was attending a wedding in the Newpark Hotel across the road, checked in just after eight, and even though the kitchen was supposed to close at eight the staff had no problem cooking up seven steaks and chips for a bunch of hungry travellers. The staff were very friendly and the bar is... More

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
