The food was amazing. Our room was amazing. We couldn't recommend this hotel enough. The food. The service. Every staff member we met from the moment we arrived were... More

This is the best location in Kilkenny for outdoor dining or drinking. Across from the castle and on the river it's a picturesque setting. The bar menu hasn't a massive variety of dishes. I had the chicken burger it was pretty tasty. Will return again

Spent a magical day at my daughter's wedding at the Rivercourt hotel last Friday, 19th August. A bit put out that our room was ready when we arrived as the civil ceremony was taking place at 3 p.m. But the reception staff were fantastic and we were soon checked in. Also I had ordered a bouquet of flowers for my... More

Rooms were fair sized with small bath and no air conditioning. Very good breakfast and extra courteous staff. Great location in the middle of this lovely town. Many close options for pubs, dining and sightseeing. Overall a good value.

After driving for hours and arriving after midnight we were tired and hungry- we were greeted with friendly and welcoming staff. Our bags were promptly delivered and room service sandwiches were at our door in no time. The room was a little small but very comfortable. The hotel is showing some age. We noticed the hallway smelled of smoke; thankfully... More

My daughter and I stayed here for a short city break and while the hotel was busy and staff obviously under pressure, the welcome was good and the stay enjoyable. We waited for our room for an hour and ordered tea and coffee on the terrace. The staff were overwhelmed and we never received menus. Reception staff were charming and... More

stayed one weekend night, great location in town centre, good off street parking, very clean, friendly staff. This is a very popular hotel for weddings so if you want a quite room ask for one that is not over the function hall. From what i could see all the rooms with a castle view are over the function room. so... More
