Food was good and staff friendly. However, would not recommend based on lack of double glazing, airconditioning, poor shower facilities and outdated decor. The noise from the street at the left bank kept us awake till 3am.

It's a centrally placed establishment in the center if Kilkenny, not far from the town park, the castle and the river with cafés and restaurants just by the riverside. The bar is a very famous one and had won prizes. The restaurant is of good standard, but it could be better if the staff could attend more to customers. Staff... More

my wife and myself stayed at the Hibernian recently. First of all it is a beautiful hotel inside a classy hotel with a beautiful bar. It is located right in the downtown of Kilkenny. This can be good or bad. It was a Friday night we stayed and it was Party Central. We could hear bands playing down the street... More

The Kilkenny Hibernian Hotel is a very good hotel in the center of Kilkenny, 5 minutes by walk of the castle. The hotel is nice and located close to a parking (possibility of having lower prices). The staff is efficient and welcoming. The rooms was big and very well-equipped, very functional. It was not noisy even if it was on... More

Unfortunately, I was not suppose to stay here but the hotel I was booked in, claimed to have sold out to a convention at the last minute. The room was extremely small, I couldn't even wheel my luggage between the bed and the dresser to make room. The bed was a double, not a queen. The pillow was as flat... More

I stayed in the hibernian with a group as part of a hen party package and we got a fantastic deal. Our room was lovely and modern although some of our friends' rooms weren't quite so modern. There was a bit of noise from the street at night which didn't bother us as we were up late, but would definitely... More

We had a perfect weekend, great staff, location and restaurant. I left my charger in the room and only realised when I got home. I called the hotel and they immediately offered to post it to me. I was delighted with the hotel and would recommend it to friends.
