Butler Court is immaculate & quiet with wonderful continental breakfast provided in each room. Comfy beds and modern bathrooms were wonderful. It is within easy walking distance of castle, shops, Smithwick's Brewery, and great cafes and pubs. Owners Yvonne and John and their dog Bo all provided us with a warm welcome and helpful advice. Had an absolutely wonderful time... More

Everything about Butler Court reflects the pride that the owners, Yvonne and John, have in their inn, their town, and their country! Yvonne came running out to greet us when we pulled up to the gate and she treated us like old friends from the beginning. She was full of information about the city of Kilkenny such as things to...

This is a gem of a place with a helpful host and hostess. The rooms are clean, modern, great continental breakfast provided(yummy yogurt, fresh fruit, good juice, home baked bread.) it is a great location from which to visit the castle, walk downtown to shops and restaurants, and even a a day trip to Waterford.

My cousin and I spent a night here on a recent trip to Ireland. We were very happy with our Kilkenny accommodations. The Butler Court is very nicely renovated with clean, well kept rooms, a beautiful luxury shower, in a wonderfully central location. The owners are both very friendly and accommodating. We also enjoyed having our breakfast preloaded in the... More

Our room at Butler Court was large and well appointed. If you have a car, parking is about a 10 minute walk and paid for. The downside here is that you make your own breakfast in your room, so it is limited. Nice town with a good castle to visit a few steps away from the B&B.

We just loved our days at Butler Court. Yvonne is one of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. When we arrived frazzled after our first day of driving on the left, she calmed our nerves and promised tomorrow would be better (it was). I was very impressed by her organization and her willingness to go over driving... More

What a beautiful, quaint hotel in the heart of Kilkenny. The hotel is across from the Kilkenny Castle and shows a gorgeous view from the second floor. The proprietors - Yvonne and John are just darlings. Extremely accommodating and welcoming. We arrived very early and in the midst of cleaning and getting the property ready Yvonne broke from her routine... More

Clean and bright rooms, quite charming courtyard. John and Yvonne very friendly, and informative about Kilkenny, with suggestions for eating. We were looking for traditional music, but the night we were there, unfortunately, was not the right night of the week. Easy walking around Kilkenny.

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!!...
