The hotel is located in the town centre, although Kilkenny is not so big. It is quite small with no elevator to upper levels. The room furniture is quite old, particularly the bed was creaky. Also cleaning should be more accurate. Moreover the wireless connection was not available in the room (as many hotels in Ireland). However, the service included... More

Self catering town houses are also rented through bookkilkenny.ie. I recently hired a town house for a hen party, the house was large clean and really comfortable and catered for all 13 ladies and was large enough for 15. All rooms except one were ensuite. The kitchen and lounge were perfect for our party. From start to end Trish was... More

This Hotel is well situated in the center of town, however it is very outdated. There is no elevator and we were on the 3rd floor, so left the bags in the car. Water pressure is poor so have a good shower before you stay here. Staff were friendly and helpful but that's about all the good things I can... More

We walked into this little gem without a reservation. Theresa, the host, was very attentive. We were given a room overlooking the street. Very clean with an updated bathroom (ensuite) with lots of hot water. The hotel is in a beautiful Georgian building. The interior is a bit dated but spotless. Very good breakfast, and if you want a full,... More

We only had one night in Kilkenny, I booked this hotel because I liked the location. I had done my research on TA so I knew it wouldn't be perfect. Pros I sent an email requesting a room on the first floor as we had a lot of luggage and the stairs are steep to the higher floors. They were... More

The location of this hotel is definitely the top selling point. It is right in the heart of Kilkenny and an easy walk to Kilkenny castle and the main strip of shops and bars. The room was average and wifi barely worked in the rooms, the staff were very lovely though and the cooked Irish breakfast from the hotel over... More

We spent 1 night here and found it to be very nice. Our rooms were not fancy, but they were certainly adequate and clean. We really had no complaints. When we told Theresa that we were leaving for church before breakfast was being served, she gave us a voucher for the hotel restaurant across the street which serves breakfast starting... More

My friends and I stayed in Berkeley House for one night and was disappointed with the standard of accommodation. It looks lovely on their website but the rooms we very obviously not the rooms shown in the pictures! I was in a room facing onto the street and it was freezing, even when the radiator was on full blast. The... More

My friend and I stayed at the Berkeley House for one night while touring Ireland. Billy was quite helpful with providing tips on where to go for dinner and Irish music as well as information on going to the Kilkenny Castle and the craft center across the street from the castle. The room was basic, comfortable and tidy. The shower's... More
