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

This is a fantastic B&B, warm, clean, modern, charming and relaxing. The hosts are wonderful, with lots of local suggestions on food, sights and travel. Rooms are well appointed and exceptionally clean. The breakfast is in the room and generous. It allowed for snacking throughout the day.

My husband and I recently stayed at Butler Court for one night. The room was clean and spacious, the bed was large and comfortable, the bathroom was a dream, and the continental breakfast was plentiful and nutritious. The location in Kilkenny is ideal for exploring the town on foot. Yvonne greeted us on arrival and gave us lots of recommendations... More

Great B&B, great room, and great location, and the best hosts in the world. We had a flat tire driving in from Dublin, and called ahead to warn them that we would be late. By the time that we arrived, they had already made arrangements to have the tire fixed at a nearby garage, and showed us where to park... More

We came across this B&B by chance. What a pleasant surprise! The rooms were clean and spacious. The owners were pleasant, cheerful and very accommodating. The location was great. Our only misfortune was that we couldn't stay longer!! We all loved it!

My daughter and I visited Ireland for the first time in mid-June and were eager to see the area where my parents came from. We decided to stay in Kilkenny and chose Butler Court at Rick Steve's suggestion in his guidebook. I am so glad we did. Yvonne and John were so gracious and helpful and suggested great pubs to...

Great location, lovely room with space for luggage and a desk, huge comfortable bed, big bathroom with double size shower; quiet location; guidebooks available for perusal; information on where to eat and what to see, very clean, ample continental breakfast in fridge in our room. Lots to see in this town, and this is the perfect home base.
