I stayed in the 4 star Hibernian Hotel for a week July 13-19 2009. When booking I explained I was taking my mother in law in her 90th year, on a break and specifically requested a quiet room and a lift. I called the night porter at 02.30 on the first night complaining of a loud droning noise, he was... More

My wife and I just returned from 10 days in Ireland, during which we stayed at a variety of small hotels, Inns and B&Bs. The Hibernian Hotel was one of the lowest priced hotels from our trip, but also our favorite. The hotel decor is great - very stylish, and well kept. The main thing that impressed us was the... More

This was our third hotel (kudos to Josh-son-in-law who found it) Dublin, Cork, Kilkenny back to Dublin. This was the third of four fabulous hotels. Kilkenny was the most walkable town. Lot's of little stores to stop into plus a very nice mini-mall. Don't miss Penney's (not JC Penney). Also there is a $2 Euro shop for incidentals and munchies... More

have stayed here on a number of nights. Every experience is great, rooms really good and big, comfortable and a really good sleep away from home. Lovely staff and great food, super location "in the middle of it all", but really an oasis. Super managment and really good service

We spent a night in February, and would liked to have spent a few more. The hotel could not be in a better, or easier to find, location in the city center. The parking garage across the street worked out well. The staff was well informed and very helpful in getting around town. The rooms were warm when we arrived,... More

We have no complaints about the Hibernian. We stopped overnight on our way from Dublin via Cashel to Kinsale. There is complimentary parking in a garage across the street, which is a bonus, because there is not alot of parking in Kilkenny. We did not hang out in our room much, but it was comfortable and clean. The location of... More

Kilkenny was at the end of our three week trip to Ireland and we were getting a little worn down. We had looked forward to Kilkenny so much and I was worried that we would be let down after having seen so much beautiful countryside, castles, pubs etc. We checked into the Hibernian on a Monday. The lady at reception... More

And the room was immaculate. We ordered room service for breakfast which was amazing too. i would definitely recommend this hotel. I didnt notice any... More

Think Twice before staying here - On our first night at this hotel we stayed on the first floor, we were very disappointed with the cramp and somewhat tatty looking room. We went to bed at about 11.30pm after a nice dinner and a drink - just as I was about to drift off, music started to thump (there's a... More
