Had a really nice time in Kilkenny while staying here for the night. Very friendly staff. Found the car park a little bit difficult to get in and out of, but didn't bother me too much. The bar attached is a lovely place to have a few drinks and the barman on the night was very friendly.

Hi, Myself and my wife got a great deal for a 3 night midweek B&B deal in this hotel, the room was very spacious and 3 beds in it, the beds were really very comfortable and the room was nice and quiet as it faced on to the rear of the hotel. We had one evening meal (roast of the... More

This is one of the cleanest hotels that I've been in, in Kilkenny. The staff are wonderful!!! They have great midweek prices. The pub staff rock! Especially Tom and Peter! I also enjoy the bands and traditional music that they offer. I prefer Kilfford Arms over anywhere else in Kilkenny, this truly is a home away from home. Thank you

Enjoyed a two day escape, great value, great location in the heart of town. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby and only a short walk to the historic castle, well worth a view. Hotel is a mix of old and new and bars are lively and comfortable. Has a unique bar with stone building remains inside as part of the... More

We attended a function at the hotel last night. The building , decor etc looks nice. It was clean fresh and very presentable. Unfortunately thats where the good experience ended. The treatment by staff of patrons was appalling. The function room we were in was like sitting in a fridge. No heating at all. Staff response to requests to turn... More

Excellent food in the bar. Good prices and plenty of food given which to be fair was really delicious. Cons: Room window wouldn't close properly, shower... More

Lovely hotel, had a nice bar and restaurant. Rooms was lovely and tidy, they provided free bottled water. Location was fantastic. Less than a two minute walk to shops and 10 minute walk to the main town centre. Staff were very friendly, will definitely be returning!

Lovely staff,great food,very clean & comfortable accommodation & a fantastic location without breaking the bank. We would never consider alternative accommodation if we get... More

Hotel was nice and very clean but as for the majority of the staff that we all dealt with ( there were 10 of us)they must of all lost there Christmas spirit apart from the lady on reception who was very helpful. In paticularly the bar man in the hotel lounge obviously didn't know how to smile or deal with... More
