We decided to visit Kilkenny at the last minute. We were very happy with the Hibernian Hotel! The location is ideal, breakfast was great! All of the staff were very friendly. Highly recommend this hotel! We enjoyed the pub in the evening. Wish we had more time here

The location of this hotel would be ideal for some, but for others it may be just a little too close to the action! The hotel is nice enough, although a little dated and some of the rooms could do with smartening up, but it was clean. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, and the food was very... More

This is a perfect hotel for a visit to Kilkenny, it's great to be able to walk out the front door and be in the centre of it all. Very friendly staff, lovely rooms & good grub. They don't have parking, but they organized a three day pass for the car park right across the road for 10 Euro, which... More

The hotels location is amazing. Its right in the middle of everything, 15 mins from the train station and looking out on the Castle. Room was lovely, the only problem was that it was very warm. Windows don't open at all so it was very stuffy, but when we requested a fan it came in no time. This helped a... More

Stayed here for three nights and was very pleased with the room, service & location. You can't get more central than this, two minutes walk from Kilkenny Castle, High Street, shops and restaurants. The hotel itself has a grand bar and restaurant, they offer complimentary parking for the length of your stay in the multi-storey car park opposite. The hotel... More

The location of this hotel is perfect for people who want to stay in the center out Kilkenny. A lot of the other hotels are on the out skirts of the town and require a taxi to bring them to hotel. The hotel is only a few minutes walking distance from the pubs and restaurants of Kilkenny. The rooms are... More

Arrived in Kilkenny on a day tour, looked around for somewhere to eat. Having checked out good places to eat on Tripadvisor before arriving chose to eat in the Hibernian Hotel as it is close to the castle and we didnt have a lot of time to spare. Didnt stay at this hotel we had Sunday lunch in the bar.... More
