My husband and I spent one night in this hotel recently. We were looking for someplace cheap because we were going to a family occasion in the city and we would really only be sleeping in the hotel. The Kilkenny Inn suited us perfectly.We had a decent sized room with a really comfortable bed and spotless bed linen. The bathroom... More

My Sister and I had a few days here this month (July 2015) and were absolutely blown away by Declan (the owner) and David (his Son) nothing was too much trouble, the room was lovely, the breakfast, amazing but the warmth and hospitality we were shown will stay with me always. Thanks so very much guys, first, but definitely not... 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

We stayed for one night. Our room was lovely and had all the necessities supplied. This is a lovely hotel. The staff very friendly and attentive. The front desk helped us find a doctor and gave directions to tourist attractions.

To be honest, this was not one of my favorite hotel visits. I actually had another hotel reserved (but inadvertently had the wrong date plugged in - and when I realized it, it was all booked up for the date needed.) So I went with the Kilkenny Inn. It was clean and twin beds were comfortable enough. Carpets need a... More

Stayed for one night while on business trip. Not that impressed. Reception is ok but the rest of the hotel is tired, needs done up and a strange smell throughout. Breakfast was average - a bit greasy, staff were friendly and the beds were clean. Shaver light not working in the bathroom the fan made a racket and could hear... More

We really enjoyed our night in the Kilkenny Inn Hotel, the staff were so friendly and the breakfast was beautiful the next morning. The gentleman serving us breakfast was very nice and polite. I would highly recommend this hotel.
