Breakfast was included, and was also very good, buffet style. Easy walk into the city center. They were in the midst of upgrading the wifi while we were there, and by... More

We had the bayo burger and warm chicken and bacon salad with death by chocolate for desert. The food was all lovely and the staff were exceptional. The view of the river is fabulous and you can see the castle.

This hotel is located very close to the castle and the town centre making shopping and eating options readily accessible. The Wi Fi here was the best we found in Ireland, It appears to have been upgraded of late. The rooms were clean and large. Breakfast and dinner were excellent

Get a castle view room. It was a full moon over the castle the night we stayed. It was just beautiful at night looking out at the castle. Very convenient to everything and has plenty of parking on site. Breakfast was excellent! It was my husband's birthday and the manager left a bowl of fruit and a nice birthday wish... More

Probably because the hotel has a lovely balcony overlooking stunning Kilkenny Castle. Breakfast was excellent and the staff super helpful. Dee the maitre de was brilliant. We had a good room the Butler which had two doubles... More

I can hear all the music and guests of a wedding below us downstairs and am very upset that we have arrived here today feeling tired already and am now counting down the minutes to when the reception finishes at 2am! I'm 7 months pregnant... More

I wasn't sure what to expect going to Kilkenny, but what a great little town! The hotel was a little older, but the location was right in the middle of where everything is (middle building in my picture). Our room overlooked the castle, and was comfortable.
