Beautiful hotel centrally located in the heart of Kilkenny. My boyfriend and I experienced a very courteous check-in and check-out. Dinner and breakfast were both of a high standard. Car parking is free between the hours of 18:00 and 12 noon. Outside of these hours, a fee of €1.50 per hour applies.

Stayed here with my boyfriend for one night and was very disappointed. Room was noisy, breakfast was terrible, and on top of this the staff were terribly unprofessional with dealing with our complaints. Will not be returning.

My husband and I were in Dublin on business and wanted to get out to a smaller town. Since we did not want to hire a car, Kilkenny was a great choice because it is on the rail line. We arrived on a cool foggy morning and easily walked to the hotel in the center of town. The lobby and... More

Lovely hotel. Very central for Kilkenny City centre. Nice old charm feeling to the hotel. The bar is very cosy comfortable. The building is lovey. Apparently it was a old Bank building. Only problem was when at dinner in restaurant we booked through Lidl and they gave us the set menu which I believe includes tea or coffee. When I... More
