The countdown is one and our annual trip to Kilkenny gets closer each day. Great city, with amazingly kind, generous and friendly people. This is always reflected by our wonderful Butler Court hosts, Yvonne and John Dalton, who are the best anywhere. In a perfect spot, just a few minutes walk from the City Centre, yet in a quiet, secluded...

I stayed here with my wife for a weekend break. We really enjoyed the independence of having a beautiful and clean room right in the city centre without having to get up for the usual Full Irish in the morning. The breakfast provided was healthy and fresh. Exactly what we wanted. There is also a lovely cafe just down the...

This is a great little place to stay. Walking distance to sights. Parking is located in a nearby garage (several blocks away), included in room rate. Simple continental breakfast is in the mini-fridge. Room was clean and quiet. Yvonne, the owner, couldn’t be nicer. She is very helpful in finding good restaurants. I would highly recommend staying at this accommodation.

My wife and I stayed 1 night at Butler Court on a recent trip to Ireland. Yvonne was so pleasant and helpful. Our room was comfortable and the breakfast healthy and hearty. Best of all, Yvonne gave us many local tips including a recommendation to attend a concert that night at the cathedral. It turned out to be a highlight...

We stayed our first night in Ireland at Butler Court during our one-week trip to the emerald isle. We had problems finding the place initially (even though we had a GPS in the car!) because we were not familiar with how buildings are numbered in Ireland. Another thing to learn when coming from Canada. Butler Court is located on the...

Perfect location. Yvonne was gracious, helpful and fun to talk with. The room and breakfast could not have been better. Kilkenny is very walkable and the castle tour and craft site/stores are quite interesting.

Great location and value in Kilkenny. Yvonne is welcoming and friendly with helpful hints if you need them. Room is lovely and warm - breakfast is in your room and includes fresh locally sourced yogurt, bread, butter and fruit. Cappuccino is just down the street if you need one. Very close to all of the Kilkenny sights - great base...

We spent a few nights here during our stay in Kilkenny. We really loved staying here: the rooms were very clean and modern, comfortable and quiet (even for a downtown location). Yvonne, the hostess, is a wonderfully nice person who was extremely helpful for anything we needed during out stay. Geographically, it is very well located to take advantage of...

We only spent one night here... but wish we had allowed more time to stay longer. Property is a great location for exploring Kilkenny, the Castle, art galleries, pubs, restaurants, shops, etc. Not that difficult driving in and out of Kilkenny if you want explore outside of town. Parking is 2 or 3 blocks away, but it is a secure...

This B&B is in a central location for walking around Kilkenny. No onsite parking available, but parking in a parkade is included in the room price.
