Didn't stay here but called in for drinks. A great location in the middle of town in a heritage type of building that is quite imposing. This place was buzzing with what seemed to be a lot of sports teams and mainly males. Still an entertaining place to come for a drink and enjoy the fun. Not for a romantic... More

Wouldn't usually pay these prices anywhere else so not sure why Kilkenny Hibernian seems to have such an inflated opinion of themselves. Arrived to reception and checked in which was fine. Made my way... More

I stayed in this hotel for one night as part of a hens party. The location of the hotel is excellent, right in the centre of the town and close to the castle. There is a car park across the road from the hotel and the hotel pay for your parking from 6pm until mid day the following day. The... More

We stayed in the Hibernian for two nights. It was a lovely spacious and comfortable room. The staff were very pleasant and could not have been more helpful. Breakfast was fresh and really tasty. The hotel was so central that we could forget about our car for three days and car parking was available for only €10 for the whole... More

Mid week stay ,in august .reception staff very friendly. We were up graded to a better room, but on looking at the standard rooms just as good. Food top class ,service was brill. Bang smack in the town. We enjoyed our short break in Kilkenny , and will go back to the Hibernian hotel again.

One of our favourite stops on our trip in Ireland. Great location, lots to see & do. The hotel staff were nice, the food was great. Kilkenny Castle was a interesting location to visit. The locals were fun, friendly & informative.
