Good craic here, we were on a stag and this hotel is the perfect spot for a stag.. Will go again if on a stag in kk again. Bar staff were dead on and couldn't do enough for ya. Breakfast for €8 is a bargain and tasty. Cheers.

Would not stay here again,if your looking for somewhere Just to lay your head it's for you.This place is seemingly under renovation but by no means should they be putting people up in the rooms which I was shown too on arrival.Very very poor as 4 women were asked to sleep in bunk beds,I'm sorry but if I wanted a...

I booked here as I wanted to be really central, and yet at a reasonable price. Then I went and read reviews and was filled with trepidation ..... But - what a fabulous surprise when I arrived !!!! The rooms have been renovated ........ not sure if all the rooms have been done yet .... but I was in room... More

Stayed here one night during the Kilkenny Arts festival. Perfect for the price. Clean room, hot shower, comfortable bed and in a central location. The place is being done up and we got one of the very newly refurbished rooms - white and bright!!! I'm sure it could be noises at the weekend but it was perfect for us midweek.... More

Overpriced for what you get. We had trouble even getting in one morning. You get a discount on food downstairs but it isn't worth it. And they'll claim they have free breakfast and they totally don't. Every day they had a new excuse why there was no food out. Lame. I'm normally not picky at all. I can put up... More

On booking this so called 'hotel' I was pleased as it looked spectacular online much to my disappointment when I arrived it was awful. The room was tiny with an en suite which smelt of damp, had no shower curtain which didn't matter as you would of been just as filthy after having a shower it was that bad...the towels... More

On a Christmas night out, my three sisters and I were supposed to stay here. One of my sisters booked this, admittedly none of us thought about reading any reviews. On the plus side the bar man that checked us in was a really nice guy, but I have to say that's the only good thing I can say about... More

Not going to write too much here because there's not much to say. This was probably one of the worst rooms I've ever had to misfortune to stay in. Yes I had read the reviews beforehand but I didn't book this my brother did (for 10 of us). At least we could laugh about it and it'll be a talking... More

So landed into the Metropole on a late Friday evening to join a stag party. Within a couple of minutes you can gauge what a place will be like and I knew the Metropole was not going to be good! The first issue was being told by the person behind the bar he'd be with me in a minute. Approximately... More
