The Hibernian was such a fantastic spot, right in the heart of downtown Kilkenny. As a first timer to ireland, this hotel did not disappoint. The room was awesome, and the front desk staff was wonderful. Centrally located, and walking distance to pretty much anything you could imagine, I will absolutely be staying at the Hibernian again the next time... More

Warm friendly greeting, so helpful with info on the area and parking, delicious value for money dinner and a cracking bar not to mention the competitive room pricing and killer location right in the centre of town.

Nice hotel in a great location. Room was large and nicely appointed. Bathroom was also large and functional. Fixtures were a bit dated but adequate. Given the age of the building we were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the room. Breakfast was good, but we did not eat dinner at the hotel, as we wanted to try other more... More

Found every aspect of the hotel excellent. Very centrs (almost opposite the castle), food excellent and staff courteous and obliging. Stayed mid-week and cost was almost half of some of the nearby hotels. Looking forward to my next stay.

Great hotel in a great location in the midst of all the attractions. The room was fine and reasonably priced (at least in early May). The only problem was that there is a very loud rock music bar just around the corner so don't get a room on the Ormonde Street side unless you want to listen to it until... More

Good location and lovely breakfast are the main reasons I've chosen this hotel. The rate was also good. The staff was very nice and helpful, the lovely lady at the reception desk recommended a couple of venues to visit in the evening with the live music going on. My room was spacious, but a bit ran down. Bathroom cleanliness passable,... More

Rooms decent size, a bit run down and air conditioning not great, but clean and bed comfortable. Breakfast was nice and included in price. Staff helpful. Good location for walking to main shops and some attractions. Parking not included in price, but secure parking at a reduced cost is available close by.

Top notch everything and a one minute walk to the Castle. Location is second to none. Fun, informed and friendly staff. Super comfortable beds and easy parking. You will not be disappointed! Just a short drive South of the Dublin Airport on the motorway. Do yourself a favor and stop by the Rock of Dunamase.
