Nice little place! Room was clean and had a nice little courtyard. Owners were very nice and helpful. Gave us a great little map and suggestions for any type of food and music we wanted. Only draw back was parking garage kind of a hike uphill with luggage. They do validate your ticket so parking is only $8 a day.

Stayed for single night on way to Cashel. Kilkenny is a really large quaint town and Yvonne&John were wonderful in directing us to sites and restaurants. We visited Kilkenny castle, strolled to a few shops, then ate at G-La Trattoria(excellent food) and ended up at Matt the Millers pub which is amazing with terrific trad music and super bar staff!!...

Butler Court welcomes you with open arms and impeccable environment. After a long day traveling through Ireland it is a bit of home in the middle of a great city and area. It is quiet and comfortable. The room was clean and bright and the shower was absolutely perfect. Whether for vacation or business - this is great place.

From start to finish we had a great experience at Butler Court! Yvonne was a wonderful host - so friendly and helpful. She recommended a sight that wasn't in the guide books and it was one of the best things we saw: Go see the Cahir Castle and the nearby Cottage - so interesting and not overrun by tourists! She...

A great bargain in Kilkenny. Our room on the second floor did not have a lot of character (reminiscent of a typical American motel room), but it was spacious, comfortable and affordable. Most appreciated was the in-room continental breakfast of cereal, juice, yogurt, fruit and homemade Irish soda bread. Very convenient in the morning and healthy too! Hosts John and... More

Yvonne was extremely helpful during our brief stay and got us settled in quickly with good restaurant and pub recommendations. Great location to walk to everything. Parking garage close by. It was a nice break to have breakfast in our room in our pajamas.

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.

Pros: -- good central location, close to restaurants and attractions -- large bathroom and shower -- friendly staff -- they provided a few spots out front or covered garage a couple blocks away -- credit cards accepted Cons: -- breakfast was perfunctory and minimal, self service in the room -- walls thin, somewhat noisy
