We stayed in Hibernian Hotel for one night. It was a fantastic stay, from start to finish. The hotel is very clean, very cosy. But above all was the friendliness of everyone of the staff. We had evening meal and breakfast,and the food was first class. A very attractive place to stay. We will definately be returning shortly.

All 5 very happy ladies as we returned home from our post covid catch up. From the first encounter with hotel we were greeted with a friendly and courteous reception staff. When she heard we were travelling from 8am that morning she didnt hesitate in securing our rooms much earlier than we had expected. We thank u for that.! Our 3 rooms were very clean cosy quiet and comfortable.(just a small neg comment ) too hot and windows only opened very little for security reason i understand . The breakfast was the icing the cake! 3 tier breakfast stands all set up for us and then hot breakfast served . 5* and attention to detail was superb. I highly recommend your hotel to family and friends

Just called in on spec and got an exceptional rate for a lovely junior suite. Over all given the continuing constraints of the Covid restrictions, we were exceptionally pleased with the outstanding level of service by the lovely friendly and attentive staff. Could not be more pleased. Faultless.

We arrived late but was greeted with a very warm welcome on arrival by a lovely lady named Anna Marie. Anna was so professional and friendly, definitely set the standard of first impressions very high. We stayed in room 120 and were absolutely blown away at how beautifully presented and spotless the room was with a fantastic view of the main street. Simply gorgeous! Dinner on Friday evening along with breakfast both mornings was delicious and service was executed flawlessly by the staff. Such a warm and friendly atmosphere created by a team that seem to be genuinely interested and happy in what they are doing. Nothing was too much trouble and customer service seemed to come so naturally to them all. One staff member that stood out to us was Helen. She served us breakfast both mornings and I could also see her still buzzing around the hotel after lunch. It was clear she works very hard and again seemed to enjoy serving each customer. Another staff member I would like to mention is Robbie from the bar, Robbie served us drinks Saturday afternoon and was a very polite, bubbly and witty gentleman. He set the perfect tone that you would expect from a nice hotel bar in a busy city like Kilkenny. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed my stay! I have done nothing but gush to both my friends and family about how amazing everything was and how the Hibernian will forever be my first choice of stay when I revisit in the future. Sincerely thanking the entire team for going above and beyond all my expectations!
