What a little gem in the centre of Kilkenny. Modern and comfortable in design. John and Yvonne could not do more to make your stay relaxing. Will definitely be going back there with the girls. Family friendly and parking provided. Excellent...

What a joy--arrived tired from my over-night flight from EWR to DUB, then the drive to Kilkenny. Yvonne revived my spirits immediately with such a warm welcome. My room was inviting with a wonderful shower stall. A healthy variety of choices for breakfast are provided in the room. I especially loved the soda bread, butter and marmalade. Coffee preparation is... More

We spent three weeks in Ireland this summer and Butler Court was by far the best place that we stayed. It is the perfect spot to stay in Kilkenny - a delightful short walk to the village center, and right near Kilkenny Castle. The rooms here are clean, well appointed, and very comfortable. The bathrooms were perfect - and the... More

Butler Court was the first overnight stay for my husband and I on a two week Ireland vacation. It was Perfect. Yvonne and John were delightful. They were great with suggestions, conversation and still gave us our privacy. We looked forward to the homemade yogurt we had in our room every morning. We recommend Butler Court to anyone staying in... More

We were quite delayed in arriving into Ireland, and after some hassles at the airport, we were exhausted when we finally arrived. Yvonne, our host, was so gracious, patient and kind. We had two rooms, and both were beautiful. The beds and linens were top-notch, and they've thought of many little extras that make the stay wonderful. We really enjoyed... More

We got two pairs on 29 / 7/16 somewhere around eight in the evening and Yvonne met us- a very nice woman, showed us the rooms were very large and clean including the bathroom – The price was reasonable. Gave us an explanation of where to go to eat and a bit about the place. Very welcoming place and an... More

Yvonne and Frank were the perfect hosts. They were so helpful and informative. Also great location, right near Kilkenny Castle. Continental in room breakfast was great because of Yvonne's brown bread.

John and Yvonne and Bo the dog - no better hosts in all of Ireland! With lots of charm and a great location, this place can't be beat. The rooms are spacious, clean and every amenity you need is provided, including a complimentary continental breakfast. The beds are very comfortable with snowy white linens and all the rooms open onto... More

Clean quiet location with big rooms. The continental breakfast was a nice change, The yogurt is amazing. Of 7 B&B's this is the only one that had the heat turned on which helped on the cool rainy day that we had. Book early, we would have like to have stayed two nights but even booking two months in advance most... More
