What can you say about the Kilkenny Inn? It's clean, well appointed and friendly. The barman is certainly very amiable and will have a talk to anyone. You definitely want to request a room at the back, especially if you are a light sleeper. But when you wake, you'll be greeted by the rarest of sights in Irish hotels. A... More

The hotel is within walking distance to the centre of town and as there is secure parking at the rear of the hotel I was able to head out for the day without worrying about taking my car. My room was spotless as was the rest of the hotel and the breakfast was... More

This hotel is a short walk to the town centre on a quiet street. seems it has been recently modernised and has nice, comfortable modern decor and is spotlessly clean. Good value at €69 for B&B. Free parking behind the hotel. Fine for a bloke by himself but might not reach the required standard for a romantic night away! Generally... More

Nice clean hotel with friendly staff. Don't bother with breakfast though it's a bit rough and microwaved several times over by the looks of it. No one eats it so get breakie in town. The Guinness is second to none though! Not too bad just get breakfast in town instead. Make sure you check out the castles in Kilkenny and... More
