Love the food in the bar in The Hibernan Hotel but unfortunately the service is Sooooo slow it's just not feasible during a lunch hour. It would be nice if the staff could recognise the people who only have 50 minutes compared to leisurely lunchesrs. It's a pity as the dishes & surroundings are gorgeous.

Kilkenny was the biggest surprise of my Ireland trip! It's a very charming city (town) with a huge restored castle and so many beautiful churches. The Hibernian was right in the middle of everything. There were plenty of restaurants and pubs and shops to explore. As for the hotel, it has a beautiful outside. The staff was friendly, the rooms... More

Went there on business for 2 nights - everyone at the Hotel was very helpful. Would go back again if staying in Kilkenny (Business or non-business) as it was very central with parking just across the street

We stayed in the Hibernian Hotel in June for one night. It was our first time staying there and we will definitely return. We loved the old world style of the hotel's interior and the room was comfortable and clean. The location is brilliant and we were able to enjoy all of Kilkenny's delights without having to far to walk... More

I was lucky enough to have my hen night organised with the Hibernian Hotel Kilkenny. They could not have made thing easier for me and my girls. Nothing was any bother. The night itself was brilliant. We started off with a cocktail class in the left bank which was a great old giggle. The barman was so nice and patient... More

I went here on my hen night with 16 other girls. We were quite disappointed with it overall particularly with the actions of the staff. We had been told on the phone that as the bride, I would be staying in the 'Penthouse' which was on a floor all to itself. I had intended to share this room with two... More

Good central location Welcoming staff Good parking rates for central hotel Restaurant meal was gorgeous with great service. The service at breakfast was variable and wasn’t as professional as it should be. Not 4 star, more 3 star. General decor dated, with soft furnishings requiring replacement.

Rooms are slightly outdated. Stained bedding/curtains and furniture. The bedding also had what looked like cigarette burns in. We stayed for one night, I believe it to be way overpriced. Stay @ the Langtons!
