Our group of 6 stayed here in 3 rooms early in May 2015. We couldn't be more pleased with the accommodations, the location and mostly our hosts! Yvonne & John were so welcoming and helpful we felt like family. The location is ideal in Kilkenny, walking distance to everything. Nights were quiet, easy to sleep. The included breakfast was ideal... More

Yvonne was wonderful and Butler Court is very close to Kilkenny's attractions. We had made plans that were ruined by weather so Yvonne helped us schedule a private tour. Our room was really great and quiet. Beau the dog is very welcoming. It was great to have a continental breakfast in the room.

Lovely alternative to a traditional hotel or B&B. Beautifully decorated and maintained separate units with a pleasant courtyard to sit out and read a book. The owners are more than helpful and very knowledgeable about the area. I plan to return.

We spent two nights at Butler Court while enjoying Kilkenny and the surrounding area. The location was fantastic, down a quiet courtyard but still within steps of everything Kilkenny has to offer. Our room was comfortable, clean, spacious and we really enjoyed having the continental breakfast and fridge in the room. While not quite the massive Irish breakfast we had... More

This is a great location, with comfortable accommodations, and extremely nice and helpful owners. We had one of our best nights in Ireland by our hosts suggestion to go see the "Kilkenny's at a local pub. The band was fantastic, fun, and full of local flavor. Our hosts also directed us to a nice restaurant in town and let us... More

This B&B was one of the places Rick Steves Ireland 2014 book suggested. I spent two nights there. Yvonne was very friendly and helpful, suggesting places that I would feel comfortable in since I was traveling alone. The room was large, very clean and a great shower. At first I was a little disappointed about not having a "full Irish... More

We stayed for 2 nights in this delightful B&B. The location is perfect for parking the car and walking around beautiful Kilkenny. We had a clean, comfortable, quiet room just as requested. We loved the in-room breakfast; our fridge was stocked daily, we made as much coffee as we wanted and ate all of the fresh fruit provided. There was... More

Central location to Kilkenny Castle, shopping and restaurants. Modern design with eco-friendly features which I appreciated and wished hotels in US used. Good sized rooms with wood floors which I loved for their cleanliness and appearance. Good sized, modern bathroom with excellent shower. It is in city central so you could hear some road noise although the street gets quiet... More
