Yvonne is a great hostess. Butler Court is perfectly located for your visit to Kilkenny. Easy walk to the castle, restaurants, great pubs with delightful music. Then come back to a comfortable room. Fridge in the room allows you to bring some snacks in .. but hardly needed since there is so much yummy stuff left there for breakfast. Fruit,... More

It's a little confusing upon arrival, as you have to pull into a no-parking zone to drop your luggage before driving to the car park down the street to park for the night. After that frazzled moment, we went up to our room, which was basic and comfortable! It was a pretty quiet stay, unexpected when in the heart of... More

My wife and I stayed at Butler Court for two nights. All the things people have said about Yvonne, the owner, and her welcoming nature are true. She runs a small B&B in the middle of Kilkenny, an absolutely lovely little town. The rooms are nice, think more like a 1950s U.S. motel than anything luxurious. But, very clean and... More

Our family rented two rooms for three nights at Butler Court. Yvonne welcomed us and gave us a very helpful map of the city with great restaurants, pubs and things to do. She even helped us with planning a day trip to Dublin. The room was wonderful and very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the yummy local yogurt they provided!... More

Butler House was recommended to us through a friend and it did not disappoint. The location was great and Yvonne and John were wonderful to host us. We arrived early afternoon with little or no sleep from our flight the night prior and found our rooms were ready in order for us to catch a few hours of sleep before... More

We stayed one night on a driving tour of Ireland, but if we were to do it again we would have stayed two. Kilkenny, while not like the small towns you see on the "Wild Atlantic Way" is itself very charming, and there is enough to do to warrant a full day. I was a little worried when we first... More

We stayed at Butler Court in Kilkenny mostly on the recommendation in the Rick Steves' travel guide. While I do not agree with all of Mr. Steves' recommendations, I loved Butler Court! Yvonne, the owner, was extremely helpful and personable. Our best find, thanks to her, was Andrew Ryan's pub - the real deal - great music! All rooms open... More

Great location with a beautiful view of the Kilkenny Castle and easy walking to the Castle, Smithwicks, Pubs, other attractions - a real gem. Yvonne went above and beyond to assist us with planning on days and nights - her recommendations were always spot on! A great place to stay in a great town - we enjoyed Kilkenny immensely.

Butler Court is fairly close to the castle and a slight walk to restaurants and pubs. This is more of a motel with doors to rooms opening to the outside. The rooms are clean, but basic and somewhat outdated. As noted in other reviews, there isn't a lobby area, so the breakfast is in the room when you arrive, continental,... More

Lovely setting with inviting courtyard and many beautiful plants. Yvonne is SO helpful. She helped us plan our day in the country with the car. Great location. Delightful rooms -- and super cool dog! The in-room breakfast allowed us to be flexible and was delicious.
