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.

The bathroom was nice and clean. The WiFi was not more than OK. The hotel was located very central in Kilkenny. Not very friendly personnel. No full breakfast due to lack of personnel. The beds were really bad

We have made Kilkenny our small break location over the last couple of years. Only 80 minutes down the road and a nice mix of locals and plenty of tourists from all over the world. It's a very laid back town but not in the service you get in the bars and restaurants, they know how to get your money... More

Recently my partner and I decided to take a cheeky night away, have dinner, drinks and relax, so it was that Kilkenny and the Hibernian Hotel were chosen. Check in is 3pm and having arrived at 1pm we went walkabouts, (the hotel took care of our overnight bag until we returned). Kilkenny Town is so quaint and steeped in history.... More

This hotel has a brilliant location in the city centre. The staff were very friendly and the rooms very clean. We stayed for one night for a hen party and the food in the restaurant was also great. Would stay here again.

The Hibernian Hotel in Killkenny was a nice, well kept older hotel minutes from Kilkenny shopping and other tourist attractions. When we checked in, Sarah was a wonderful help in getting information for us. Only issue was a noisy bachelorette party on our floor. We had to call the front desk at 2:30 a.m. and it was dealt with immediately.... More

I have stayed here twice, on both occasions with a large group of workmates on a staff night out. The hotel could not be more central, the staff are very nice and we have had a good meal on both occasions that we have been here. The rooms are clean and comfortable, but very hot at night and there is... More

We stayed here for two nights...and wished for more. The hotel, while older, is not run-down or shabby by any means. We were in Ireland for a week and the wireless internet here was by far the fastest. The room was very comfortable and well-appointed.The staff was cheerful and helpful. We parked the car in a nearby garage and spent... More
