This is a great location, with comfortable accommodations, and extremely nice and helpful owners. We had one of our best nights in Ireland by our hosts suggestion to go see the "Kilkenny's at a local pub. The band was fantastic, fun, and full of local flavor. Our hosts also directed us to a nice restaurant in town and let us... More

This B&B was one of the places Rick Steves Ireland 2014 book suggested. I spent two nights there. Yvonne was very friendly and helpful, suggesting places that I would feel comfortable in since I was traveling alone. The room was large, very clean and a great shower. At first I was a little disappointed about not having a "full Irish... More

We stayed for 2 nights in this delightful B&B. The location is perfect for parking the car and walking around beautiful Kilkenny. We had a clean, comfortable, quiet room just as requested. We loved the in-room breakfast; our fridge was stocked daily, we made as much coffee as we wanted and ate all of the fresh fruit provided. There was... More

Central location to Kilkenny Castle, shopping and restaurants. Modern design with eco-friendly features which I appreciated and wished hotels in US used. Good sized rooms with wood floors which I loved for their cleanliness and appearance. Good sized, modern bathroom with excellent shower. It is in city central so you could hear some road noise although the street gets quiet... More

My husband and I stayed at Butler Court for a night during our trip through Ireland. It was cozy, impeccably clean, great location to walk to everything in town, and perfect for our needs. The Inn Keepers were very friendly, knowledgable of the area, and provided great recommendations for dining. We had dinner at the Hibernian as suggested - very... More

Yvonne gave us great tips and advice for our visit- very helpful. The rooms we had on the lower level were very comfortable and the little breakfast snacks hit the spot. Kilkenny was a good first stop after picking up a car at the airport and Yvonne's friendly warmth gave us a great first impression of Irish hospitality.

Central location, easy to find, very inviting layout of the property. Rooms were clean, spacious, modern, well-decorated, with very nice bathroom, and small refrigerator with breakfast in it for the next AM! Yvonne is a hostess with a lively personality and a fast comedic wit! We thoroughly enjoyed meeting her! The Kilkenny Castle is right around the corner, and they... More

So friendly, so helpful, Yvonne helped to make the Butler Court experience so very special. On top of that, the room was great. Butler Court is very convenient to the Kilkenny Castle and Butler House as well as to the shops and pubs of central Kilkenny. I can't imagine a better place in town.

Yvonne was so friendly and helpful and funny! Our room was quiet enough for a Saturday night to get some good sleep. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. We had a great time exploring the Castle and a little bit of the city on our brief one night stay in Kilkenny. Would definitely stay at the Butler Court again.

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
