Yvonne welcomed us with a warm smile and helpful insight for our 3 night stay. Our room was large, clean and bright. A nice continental breakfast provided for you each day was more than plenty for us. Within a 5 minute stroll to the heart of Kilkenny - very convenient with free parking nearby in a parking garage - free... More

Great accomodations - clean, well stocked. Convenient continental breakfast right in the room so you can eat breakfast and start your day when you want. Yvonne and John were so helpful and friendly. Of course, there's Bob, the dog who is just adorable. The location is perfect for exploring Kilkenny yet very quiet for sleeping at night. Definitely a wonderful... More

It's hard to fault the rooms at the Butler Court, which are set in a quiet courtyard off Patrick Street, just five minutes from the centre of Kilkenny. Very well appointed, with comfortable beds, TV, refrigerator, bathrooms with walk-in showers, dressing table/desk and free Wifi, all rooms have electronic card entry (as does the courtyard entrance outside working hours). Proprietors... More

It is surprisingly difficult to find a decent B&B in Kilkenny City - we've tried now a couple of times and this is the first place which matched our expectations. The accommodation is 'motel' style with rooms accessible at general ground level or the open access external landings on first floor level. The rooms are modern, very clean and the... More

Butler Court came highly recommended (even by Rick Steves, god of all things travel). The room itself was very nice, although we could barely get it to heat to a livable temperature the entire evening. Upon checking in we were never informed of a check out time, and just asked not to leave too early. There seemed to be no... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for a pre-Christmas shopping weekend. After spending an evening on the net, looking at a whole range of overpriced accommodation in Kilkenny, we came across Butler Court. They offered a really good price for 2 nights accommodation and had such great reviews on trip advisor that it was an obvious choice for us. We... More

Three of us stayed one night at Butler Court, and wished we had booked for a longer stay. John and Yvonne were friendly, cheerful, funny and gracious hosts, within a few minutes of talking to them we felt like we had been friends for years and could have talked for hours. We are still quoting John whenever it rains or... More

A lovely little block of rooms on the site of the old stable block for Kilkenny Castle. John and Yvonne are wonderful hosts in this quiet, comfortable B&B, an oasis in a town that tends to get pretty noisy on weekends with hen parties.

We had a great stay at Butler Court! When we arrived in Kilkenny it took us about 20 minutes or so to find a parking spot so that we could check in and drop our luggage off (which was our only pain point.) Yvonne greeted us and instructed my husband on how to get to the parking garage and said... More
