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

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This Hotel is well situated in the center of town, however it is very outdated.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
