The hosts are wonderful sharing important tips for us to enjoy our evening. We appreciate that they gave various suggestions for dinner and entertainment without trying to sway us toward specific ones. Additionally, they help us find a place in Dublin to stay. Quality people running a comfortable, quality place.

Perfect location for anything in Kilkenny. Everything is in a 5-15 min walk. The owners are very nice and accommodating. There is a parking garage around the corner from the B&B which they validate for you. The room and bathroom was very clean. The breakfast is just continental, but there are restaurants down the st to get some breakfast.

We absolutely loved our stay. We were very sorry it was only one night but Yvonne, John, and Bo were wonderful hosts. We will definitely be returning to Butler and Kilkenny. The rooms were spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. We liked the garden area as well. Everything is within walking distance and Yvonne was wonderful in explaining which... More

Butler Court is almost more of a hotel than B&B, and I mean that in the nicest way possible. We had great interaction with our hosts, and we enjoyed our 2-night stay. Bo was a sweetheart and loved the attention, and Kilkenny turned into a great find during our trip. We had a great room with a King Size Bed... More

Delightful host and hostess welcome you to a very well maintained and centrally located accommodation. A bit noisy, but not terribly obtrusive. Great spot to stop for a night or two during your travels through Ireland . . . would definitely stay there again.

After a long and frustrating first day of driving in Ireland, this was the perfect destination! Our room was lovely, quiet, and comfortable. The owners were kind and very friendly. They provided us with a warm welcome and wonderful recommendations for places to visit and dine during our short stay. We would go back in a heartbeat. It highly recommend... More

We loved this B&B. Located in the heart of Kilkenny and walking distance to all of the sites. Rooms are clean, modern and tucked away from the street for privacy. The continental breakfast is right in the rooms for you to enjoy at your leisure. Yvonne your hostess is a great source of local information, for sites in the area,... More

My wife and myself, granddaughters and friends have all stayed at this great B&B/Hotel right in the heart of Kilkenny for many years. Since my wife's grandmother was a Butler we attend the Butler family reunions at the Butler Castle in Kilkenny every three years and walk the one block over to the Castle for the events. However, because we... More

At first glance, you may miss this place (we accidentally went to Butler House - right next door...oops!). But once you are in the alley, it is very quiet and peaceful. Although some people may not expect, this is a motel-style guesthouse - there are two floors and separate doors per room from outside. This was known to us so... More

It's a gem in downtown Kilkenny, and the hosts are wonderful. Fronting on one of Kilkenny's downtown streets, but with rooms tucked back in a quiet courtyard, Butler Court provides walking access to shops, pubs, the castle, and--a bit farther but still walkable--St. Canice's Cathedral. The room was clean and quiet; and the in-room continental breakfast provided great flexibility in... More
