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

The TV however was a great big lump of plastic from the last century and had a only about 5 or 6 channels. The bed was comfortable and I would have got a good sleep were it not... More

The location of the hotel is perfect , right in the middle of Kilkenny City. It has an old world friendly atmosphere and you can sit outside on a sunny day and watch the world go by. The bedrooms were fine except the bedspread was a little threadbare and had seen better days. The food was average nothing special. The... More

The hotel staff on arrival were lovely and so helpful. However our room was over (though 3rd floor up) the late night bar. This opens on Friday, Saturdays and Sunday, and unfortunately for us, we were there on Sunday! loud music and people screaming at each other over the music until the middle of the night. Like I said, staff... More

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 However, would not recommend based on lack of double glazing, airconditioning, poor shower facilities and outdated decor.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
