To be able to say that every staff member I came across from reception to bar men, to dining room staff to nightclub security, everyone was so friendly, so helpful and great fun, Kilford Arms should be very proud of a hard working staff. Great value, yes it is a noisy hotel but to be expected, it has a late... More

Just back from a fantastic hen weekend in the Kilford Arms. From start to finish everything was perfect. Staff were very helpful in all aspects. Also very accommodating (room for stripper, hanging up decorations etc). Food was really enjoyable as was the breakfast. Great entertainment in the hotel (Karoke was brilliant). Its a great hotel for hen night and stag... More

Very nice hotel, very nice people. Great location. Fun trip. We had a blast. It was nice having a car and going where we wanted when we wanted to. Having parking available was important to us. Thank you for all you did.

Recently stayed one night on our way from Dublin to Dingle. Good property at a great price. Great location, free parking and wi-fi, friendly staff, comfortable room. Hotel has a lift but we did have to walk quite a ways up/down stairs to get to our room. Wasn't a problem for us just wanted to inform those that might need... More

Great location and great value. Our room was lovely and our bed was very comfortable. The staff were very helpful and the food delicious. Will be staying there the next time we visit kilkenny. Nearly forgot to mention they give you free private parking in the rear of the hotel.

Brilliant Hotel with inclusive breakfast, free Wi- fi, and free parking. Brilliant staff who bend backwards to fit your needs. Nothing was a problem and the hotel was very well maintained. Cant find any fault with any staff; from room cleaners to front desk staff. We had to leave early to catch our flight so they even organised early breakfast... More

On arriving at the hotel following a two hour drive we had to wait in the car park for 90 minutes before we could get a space. When we mentioned this at reception we were informed that the car park was open to the public and as it was the cheapest in the area it usually filled up with people... More

Stayed here for one night, if your single and don't mind alot of noise this place is for you otherwise stay clear, rooms basic enough, stags and hens venue so don't expect a lot of sleep, parties go on all night with drunken revellers running through the halls, you'd have to be very drunk to get any sleep, the bar...
