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

Great location. It is walking distance to all historical locations, shops and restaurants. Comfortable and clean room. Parking is a bit out of the way, but it was not a problem. WIFI is available in the lobby.

We stayed 2 nights in Kilkenny and had a wonderful time. Great location, quiet room, nice hot water and slept like a baby. Enjoyed everyone we met and delicious breakfast too. Would definitely recommend.

We arrived in Kilkenny on a whim on a Saturday night. They had one room left, so we worried it wouldn't be up to par, but it was lovely - lofty ceilings, a gorgeous back-facing view of the old castle walls and greenery. Hopped across to the hotel for a great dinner (have the lamb) and some drinks. Excellent value.

The people were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was pretty good but the rooms were badly in need of refurbishment. Bathrooms were old. Beds appeared to be on slats with no box spring. We had two rooms and both were in need of improvement. Good location though.

Berkeley House is the PERFECT LOCATION in Kilkenny. It is literally only steps to the historical mile walk, less than a block from the ATM, a short walk to the best restaurants and pubs (WITH MUSIC) in town. TERESA is the MASTER OF THE HOUSE. Her recommendations were impeccable.

Stayed here 11/5 for a girls night out in Kilkenny. It was great value for money for a Saturday night in Kilkenny - very central, friendly and helpful staff, clean, comfortable room. For a value break with basic accommodation it was perfect. Breakfast was good and I will return.

Its was our first stop in Ireland and we loved this house and Teresa. We stayed 2 nights and the room is clean, big and bathroom is clean. Teresa was most helpful with directions to Kilkenny from Glendalough and full of information on place to go for our travels. We can see what you mean about Irish dancing being more... More
