Very central hotel with its own off street parking down a narrow alley. The car park is tight and busy so be careful. It is quite a walk in the rain to get to the front of the hotel with bags etc and there is no drop off at the front. We were asked to pay in full on check in - first time this has happened to us?? The hotel room was grand and done the job requested - it is although very outdated and needs modernising. The bar area is quite busy doing meals all day long and we had a good meal included in the package - the apple pie was on of the nicest we have tasted in quite some time. Again this hotel is very central and didn't take the car out in the two days we were here. Wandering down the street to the various pubs and listening to the live music was really good as each one had something on. The castle is also very good and a must see. My first time in Kilkenny and I would recommend it to anyone - very friendly people and great Guinness. If we had to stay here we would as we have no complaints but we would try one of the other central hotels next time as they seem to be of better quality. We did however really enjoy our stay - "you get what you pay for, so don't expect the Ritz "
