I organised a three day break for a group of eleven female friends and availed of the Golden Years package. It was a great success.
The welcomes at reception were friendly and efficient and our rooms were all delightful, with views of Kilkenny Castle. The facilities and location of the hotel were very suitable for us as the city centre is within a short walk, there is a selection of golf clubs in the area and the hotel has a leisure centre with beauty treatments.
The quality of the food was wonderful and each meal was a pleasure.
We arrived on a Sunday and by doing so seemed to have missed any noise from entertainment on the Saturday - or weddings on the more popular days at the end of the week.. The small resident's lounge was perfect for a late night drink and chat.
A slight downside is the charge of €2 to exit the car park and the difficulty some time in finding a parking space.
Those of us with extra time available would have been very happy to stay on for an extra night but unfortunately for us the hotel was fully booked!
However, everyone on the break will be recommending the hotel to friends and would be happy to return.
