Just returned from a weekend break with the girls at the Hotel Kilkenny. The staff at this property offer an exceptional service, each and every one of them were friendly and helpful and went above and beyond whether it was at reception, in the bar or at breakfast service. The hotel itself would no longer be of 4* standard, the...

This is not the hotel to stay at if you'r looking for quirky or "irish" or even modern. But it's perfectly reasonable. About 15 minutes walk from the historic centre of Kilkenny, I can understand why all the wedding party reviewers have given it 5 stars. Well organised. Pleasant rooms. Good service.
