stayed here over the weekend. within minutes walk to Kilkenny city centre. Location very good. Room basic but had all the essentials and was nice that there was complimentary water. Had dinner in hotel restaurant - i ordered a veggie lasagne. It was not a great size portion and a little expensive to dine there overall. Breakfast was very good.... More

Great location right on the main street and super close to the train station and all of the attractions in the city center. We had 32 steps up and down to our room. It was like an obstacle course. Not sure we ever went the same way to from it. Some of the rooms were a little old but full... More

It's a basic hotel; the accommodations, as the title suggests, are nothing to write home about. I had a single room and it was pretty small. The layout of the hotel is confusing, but going through the pub door late at night is kind of fun, I guess. As others have mentioned, the hotel is well-situated at the heart of... More

I stayed one night at the Kilford Arms in Kilkenny. The hotel is well located amongst many pubs and shops. However, the rooms appear to not have been renovated since the 1960s. The beds in the room had linens that despite clean were worn out. The carpets still had scents remaining from past guests--perhaps it was a smoking room once?... More

Central location close to everything of interest. Stayed here on a Sunday night with breakfast included. The twin room was pretty basic but had everything you can think of, including tea/coffee facilities and safe deposit box. Also worth noting that the water pressure in the bath tap is the best ever ... The breakfast buffet was pretty good to so... More
