John and Yvonne are excellent hosts- friendly, informative and eager to please. Well located B&B. Rooms are off the street so very quiet. Very clean, large room with all the amenities. In room continental breakfast with fridge was a welcome treat- to be able to eat on our own time as we are early risers. Cereals, yogurt, juice, bread, jams,... More

Butler Court is a fantastic place to stay. From the very lovely John and Yvonne who run it and are so full of great information for all the surrounding areas as well as Kilkenny, to the modern up to date lovely room I stayed in. It is in the perfect location for everything in Kilkenny with lots of beautiful walks... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at Butler Court. Location is right in the heart of Kilkenny, but it's remarkably quiet. Hosts Yvonne and John are friendly and very helpful with dining suggestions. Yes, you don't get a full hot breakfast, but they provided a generous number of cold breakfast options and the refrigerator in the room was a great... More

During our short stay in Kilkenny, the Butler Court was a home away from home. The reception we received was warm and inviting and we immediately felt at ease. The room was comfortable, clean and very neat. It was also very pleasurable to eat our breakfast in our room and the breakfast items provided to us were of very good... More

Extremely helpful hosts, large and comfortable bed, super clean bathroom and quiet but central location across from Zuni and several other hotels where you Can get full breakfast if that is what you want. We were fine with the cold selection in the room and grabbed just coffee from the Kit Kat just down the street so this beautiful courtyard... More

John and Yvonne are incredibly gracious, helpful hosts. This small B&B is perfectly located just a blocks walk to the castle and High street, but enough off the main path to feel totally secure and quiet. Our daughter loved their dog!!!, and the patio is lovely. Definitely recommended!

WE loved this place. Owners are hands on and very helpful for everything. their place on Patrick street is two minutes from the castle and the start of the main streets in kilkenny - however when you walk into their quaint courtyard you feel like your outside of the town. to describe this as a motel would be wrong -...

We arrived in Kilkenny early and proceeded to this B&B to see if an early check in was possible. It was, and we were easily checked in and shown to our room. Yvonne took the time to chat with us and tell us a bit about the town including recommendations for places to eat, stroll and visit. She was a... More

We were here for just one night in May, and we had an excellent experience. The location of this B&B has to be one of the best in Kilkenny - a very short walk from the Kilkenny castle and all other points of interest. Never needed to use our car while we stayed in Kilkenny, as everything was close at... More
