I've stayed here a number of times on short family breaks. Always found the staff to be extremely friendly and welcoming. The hotel is situated just outside of Kilkenny, on its own estate so its secluded and quiet, but still only a short drive from Kilkenny center. So your getting the best of everything. My kids love the place. The... More

We stayed for 3 nights with our 5 and 3 year olds and had a lovely break. The place itself is beautiful and has lovely grounds. We were upgraded to penthouse suite which was pure luxury! The kids club was great and we made real use of it, along with the pool and playground (although small). Breakfast was lovely and... More

Second trip here and hotel is still beautiful. Very chic and modern. Love the décor of the rooms-if its a treat splurge on a suite you wont be disappointed .Yindees food is beautiful but also have a traditional restaurant if thai is not your thing. 5 mins into Kilkenny city if you fancy getting out of the hotel.

This really is a fabulous option for a few days break. The hotel is located a few kilometres outside of Kilkenny city, in a large estate and golf course. Staff were really excellent in the hotel, from check-in to housekeeping, bar staff and spa attendants. Everyone was friendly and helpful, without being intrusive. Special mention to Sean Cork in Tubbers... More

Stayed with friends over Valentines weekend and had a great time. The hotel is incredible and the rooms are very spacious. Ours even had two bathrooms which was handy!! The Asian restaurant was really good, and there was a singer/guitarist in the bar. Breakfast was very good and the was a wide selection of food available.

We had a family gathering end Dec. Place is really nice, rooms perfect... cant fault anything expect the sitting areas.

Reception area was cold as the doors... More
