If we had it to do again....we wouldn't change a thing! The wedding team were a joy to deal with from the very first day we met them (about 18 months before our wedding date) and we were made to feel relaxed and reassured at every point. The day itself was the fantastic, the room was decorated lovely, service was... More

Our wedding at the Ormonde Hotel, Kilkenny was the most wonderful experience. The staff there, especially Sinead, went over and beyond what we expected. When we saw the room at the wedding fair we really loved it, but when it came to our wedding day and we walked into the reception room, we were blown away. Every little detail was... More

Having never been to Kilkenny before and taking my husband away for his 40th birthday I booked this hotel on the basis of the reviews from Trip Advisor. I am so glad I did. It is very unusual to go to a hotel where they take such a personal interest in their guests, but nothing was too much for the... More

We were on 15 day bus tour in Ireland - may 2014. This was our hotel for 2 nights. Now the first thing that was bad about our stay was that it was comedy festival in town and the hotel was hosting the event.

The staff are very friendly and professional. Our room was a good size and the bed was very comfortable. The shower was very good and Breakfast was really excellent. I wish I had room to try the pancakes as they looked really good.

The location of this hotel was perfect. It was a bit of meandering through town to find it, but it is quite central. The hotel also has a connected parking garage across the street for 5 EUR a night.
