The space itself was adequate for a place to crash for the night -- but the water coming out of the pipes is totally gross. After a night of enjoying a few pints of Guinness at the local pub, we came back and tried to drink some water from the sink, but it was disgusting. A quick Google search showed... More

Berkeley House accommodated my last minute (same day) booking and gave me a great deal too. It's perfectly located in the town center amidst restaurants, pubs, and tons of shopping. The staff is very friendly and responsive, continental breakfast is simple but good, my room was clean and the shower was strong and hot. Lots of towels, tea/coffee in the... More

Stayed one night and it was very pleasant. Parking is provided across the street. Location is wonderful, walking distance to many places including Kilkenney Castle. Typical breakfast of cereal, fruit, eggs, bacon, toast... Clean and comfortable bed.

Stayed here for one night for Cat Laughs Festival as all the hotels around were either booked up or too dear for a one night when the head will barely touch the pillow! In saying that still thought this B&B was very overpriced, I’m sure there was some mark up on account of the weekend. Great location and friendly staff.... More

You can't get anything better than the Berkeley house for a weekend away in Kilkenny. The guesthouse is perfectly located, fantastic price and the staff are the best! The guesthouse has a parking deal with the Q park around the corner so you get a discounted rate. We had a small continental breakfast included but we did not avail of... More

We stayed for one night while traveling south. It was clean and comfortable and the location is perfect. Kilkenny and the Berkley were one of my favorite stops. You must go to the Hole in The Wall for great music and fun on the weekend...............................

Trish was very nice to deal with. We stayed for two nights and it was absolutely perfect. We cooked breakfast and made plenty of tea and wine! The location is excellent as it's so central. There is no parking. We stayed in November so it was chilly but we turned on the heaters and it was lovely and warm. We... More

25 of us stayed in these houses in the center of kilkenny. The house is basic but everything you need is there and Trish was wonderful, we met her on arrival and she was just so helpful and lovely, even had cakes for us! I would definitely book these houses again, especially the dorm room one it's like being on... More

We stayed here for a weekend and to be honest it couldn't be more handy. Right smack in the middle of the city everything is within walking distance, pubs, restaurants, shops and the castle is literally around the corner. It's an old school hotel with no bar so more in the style of a guest house. Breakfast is served till... More

For a quick week-end at Kilkenny, the Berkeley House B&B was perfectly located. In the town center, close to many pubs, shops, the castle and near the bus stop (coming from Dublin). The check-in was efficient. I had a room on the 3rd floor. It was clean and cosy however I was disappointed with the bathroom. The pressure of the... More
