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 Laminate floor outdated.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!! Usually I opt for the Sunday Roast with all the trimmings but on the few occasions (like yesterday) where I have been tempted by steak &... More

Called here for early dinner after it had been recommended by people at our B&B who had been attending the national ploughing competition. The restaurant was crowded and very busy with most of the tables being occupied but the two servers worked non-stop and our food & drinks were quickly served. I had a fairly substantial mixed grill at €13... More

Ideal location for a stay in Kilkenny City, close to the center yet far enough away from the traffic and often boorish behavior. Rooms are reasonably priced and breakfast is very good, easy parking, free newspapers and a relaxed atmosphere makes this a recommended place to stay by me!

A group of us stayed in the Brogmaker a few weeks ago and were very impressed with it overall. We checked in early no problem. Basic rooms but very clean. Tea, coffee and biscuits in all rooms. Went downstairs and had lunch in the restaurant, fab food. Two courses only 9.95. Sauce on chicken mouthwatering. Staff extremely friendly and helpful.... More
