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

My husband and I stayed at Butler Court for a night during our trip through Ireland. It was cozy, impeccably clean, great location to walk to everything in town, and perfect for our needs. The Inn Keepers were very friendly, knowledgable of the area, and provided great recommendations for dining. We had dinner at the Hibernian as suggested - very... More

Yvonne gave us great tips and advice for our visit- very helpful. The rooms we had on the lower level were very comfortable and the little breakfast snacks hit the spot. Kilkenny was a good first stop after picking up a car at the airport and Yvonne's friendly warmth gave us a great first impression of Irish hospitality.

Central location, easy to find, very inviting layout of the property. Rooms were clean, spacious, modern, well-decorated, with very nice bathroom, and small refrigerator with breakfast in it for the next AM! Yvonne is a hostess with a lively personality and a fast comedic wit! We thoroughly enjoyed meeting her! The Kilkenny Castle is right around the corner, and they... More
