Was here for a hen weekend, perfectly central location and easy find. Having nightclub downstairs I thought might be a problem but you wouldn't even notice. The food in the hotel was beautiful, the Vol au vents I seriously recommend! Only criticism is the ROK.s were far too warm

Enjoyed a two night midweek break in the Kilkenny Hibernian Hotel. The location of the hotel is extremely convenient for all the sights and there is good parking (€10 for 3 days). The room was very comfortable and clean and the bed was huge! Tea and coffee making facilities and we had no problems with hot water. The bar of... More

The Hibernian is a fine old hotel very convenient to the car park and the castle. Large comfortable rooms, but no hot water. This is a four star hotel and they were told of the problem twice and all they could say was "it's in an older part of the building". We gave it the requested ten minutes and nothing!... More

Didnt have breakfast or eat in hotel so cannot comment on the food. Check in was fine. Check out was 12 and as we had a late night... More

We booked the Hibernian at the Kilkenny tourist office sight unseen and we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. It's located in town within walking distance to many pubs, restaurants, shops, and across from Kilkenny Castle. The room was huge, nicely decorated, a modern bathroom. The bed was a little hard by my standards but that's a personal preference. Parking... More

Stayed here 16/4/15, what a great location right in the centre of town near all the sights. Staff were efficient and very welcoming upgrading our room, 320 which was very pleasant with separate sitting area and bedroom! Very reasonable cost and car park (which is very near) charges covered within your stay. I actually forgot an item and the hotel... More

My boyfriend and I have just come back from two nights staying in this hotel and are completely disappointed at what we experienced. We arrived on Thursday 9th April hoping to have a relaxing two nights here but this was not the case. Our room was clean and the bed was big and comfortable but the tv made an awful... More

Had a lovely evening with a group of friends. Had a rib-eye steak which was cooked to perfection, and accompanied by a lovely sauce. Everyone I ate with was very pleased with their food and the service was top rate.
