My wife and I stayed at Butler Court for 3 nights in July. The accommodation was excellent and within walking distance of the local shops, pubs and Kilkenny Castle. Parking was free at the nearby QPark. The room was spotlessly clean and Yvonne was an excellent host. This is a good home base for visiting the Rock of Cashel and... More

We just returned from a 6 day trip to Ireland (Kilkenny and Dublin) and Butler Court was definitely and by the far the best lodging we had on the trip in terms of value and hospitality. The room was clean, comfortable and cozy, and the bathrooms were surprisingly large. The location was great for us -- a little bit on... More

For us, Butler Court is the very best style of B & B, Irish style. Yvonne and John, the owners, are on the premises and are very welcoming. They are a treasure trove of local information about services, places to visit, the best pubs and restaurants, Irish music venues, travel routes, and more. Bo the dog is a sweet doggie... More

We had planned on spending two nights in Killarney but decided after one night to leave...we had originally wanted to spend a night in Kilkenny but didn't think time would allow. After meeting 3 couples that LOVED Kilkenny, we knew we had to cut Killarney short and go to Kilkenny. BEST decision of our trip. We also LOVED Kilkenny. We... More

We arrive late in the day and only had a few minutes to make it to the last Jamison tour. Yvonne was so kind to call and get us into the tour even though they were already booked. Butler Court is in a great location. Walking distance to stores, restaurants, and pubs. The rooms are nice with big bathrooms. Great... More

Butler Court is conveniently located a block from the castle in the center of town. We had a little trouble finding it, since there are no street numbers, but once we did, we were delighted with the B&B. John showed us our room and validated our free parking in a ramp a block away. He also gave us an excellent... More

We stayed here just one night and wished we had planned for a longer visit. The town of Kilkenny is wonderful. Yvonne was so welcoming. The rooms were comfortable. It is just minutes from Kilkenny Castle.

We stayed two nights at Butler Court. Yvonne and John were very helpful in helping planning our itinerary around the area and suggesting good restaurants. We enjoyed their very friendly dog who we can't remember his name. He would visit us each day.. The accommodations were good and kept well. Good location for downtown Kilkenny. Overall, we had a very... More

We were looking for the Butler House and actually came across this by pure accident. It was the perfect find. Yvonne was very kind and accommodating as we arrived later in the evening. It was in a great location by the pubs, Kilkenny castle and other attractions. Thanks!!find

My family and I had a great stay here while in Kilkenny. The rooms were nice and clean. The B&B is set up like a motel, which was a nice change of pace. It was my favorite shower of the trip - spacious and great water pressure! We all enjoyed the continental style breakfast which was self-serve in our rooms.... More
