We arrived in Ireland by air and made this B & B our first stop. Great location, excellent hosts, and comfortable rooms. Basic continental breakfast in-room was provided the night before ... No cooked breakfast, buy more than offset by the proximity to the central town and the enthusiasm and assistance of our hosts. They helped us with a recommendation... More

We loved Yvonne and found her friendly, helpful, and accommodating, so I really wanted to give this 4 stars. However, for 90 euros, we found the room to be a bit sparse and were surprised that the shower was completely open to the toilet and sink in the bathroom--no half wall or curtain to prevent water from getting on everything....

I stayed in Butler court for two nights and had a wonderful experience. Yvonne runs the guesthouse with her husband, though I think he was away while we were there. She made sure we felt welcome and really took the time to talk to us and make us comfortable. The hotel's location is one of it's greatest assets, just up... More

Wonderful little gem that is right off the hub of the city. This small and perfect place is nestled in the city yet feels like your nowhere near the city. Yvonne is so sweet and helpful she really makes the stay great. Rooms are decent size with lovely decor. Breakfast (cold) is in your room which I personally love including... More

It was our second to last hotel in a two week tour of Ireland and it was one of our favorites. If you stay on the second floor, you have a view of the castle. Kilkenny is one of the places I would like to spend more time in when I come back to Ireland. Yvonne was very welcoming and... More

Butler Court is located in the heart of right where you want to be when exploring Kilkenny. The nice thing about the property is that the rooms are tucked back so that you don't feel like you are that close to the action when you are in your room. Free parking is included at the garage around the corner so... More

We had a wonderful stay at Butler Court. It is a fine place at a reasonable price in an excellent location. The owner was friendly and most accommodating of our special needs. It is also possible to do self-catering meals at this property, difficult if not impossible at other places where we stayed in Ireland. Very good value for the... More

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
