We were only staying overnight, so location and price were a priority. This hotel was just north of the city centre and we walked down for a lovely tapas at Grapevine. We were pleasantly surprised by the comfortable and clean room - I particularly enjoyed the lovely deep bathtub. Breakfast was not included, but a full Irish breakfast plus cereals,... More

Located just north of the town centre - easily walkable in a few minutes. Good car park behind the hotel. Plus points - decent sized room, spotlights beside the bed, decent breakfast. Minus points - wifi only available in the lobby, hotel feels a bit gloomy and dingy. Corridor smelt of smoke and plenty of butts lying on the roof... More

The Kilkenny Inn suited us perfectly.We had a decent sized room with a really comfortable bed and spotless bed linen. The bathroom... More

We arrived late and tired but the receptionist was helpful. Room was spacious with everything we needed and a very short distance from the main street. Due to the central location I don't imagine any rooms will have a great view but this was a great place to stay if you are visiting kilkenny as it is just far enough... More
