Booked in for 2 nights - lovely feel on entering the hotel. Room was spacious and very clean. Hotel central to everything - left bank bar across the road - main shopping street around the corner. Fine big pool, jacuzzi and gym (not used;-).......Beautiful restaurant...very tasty food.Lovely reception area to sit down for after dinner drinks. Spa well laid out - staff very friendly and professional....facial and back massage - didn't want to go home after it - nice relaxation rooms to avail of and no pressure to leave!! Will definitely be back to see more of kilkenny city and surroundings and time to spend in the hotel.

I would highly recommend this hotel to all my family and friends. It is in the center of the city but in a quiet street just off the main street so we both enjoyed a good nights sleep. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The room was spacious and very clean. Breakfast was plentiful and had a wide variety of food to cater for all needs. In some reports I read the leisure facilities were across the road and I have to admit I was a little disappointed but in fact they are linked by a corridor under the street so you never have to leave the hotel. Overall a very pleasant stay and I would definitely return.

We stayed two nights.As much as I liked the central location I don't think it was a 100% value for money. It is a noce hotel bit we were dosappointed with the room.It was very dark and didn't seem to reflect the standard of the hotel

Location is really convenient.It's only few minutes away from the castle.

Kilkenny remains a nice place to visit and this was my first to the Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel - I hope that it will not be my last.
The hotel lounge was buzzing with interesting people all apparently enjoying themselves and that gave rise to an atmosphere of vibrance which carried through into most other aspects of the hotel.
The rooms, (we used three), were all good, well appointed, and with good internet connectivity.
The hotel is within a minute or two's walk of the Town centre and its only issue is the slight inconvenience of car parking in a multistorey park - but that is just across the road so very easy to get to.
The best hotel we have stayed in in Kilkenny.

We spent one night in the Ormonde Hotel. We got a free upgrade which meant a queen bed and a single bed. The room was very large for a British/European-type hotel. The bathroom was spacious and very modern. Everything was clean and the staff very helpful. Good hot showers. Would definitely stay there again! Also great location for pubs, restaurant, shopping.

Room Tip: Always call ahead a day or two ahead to confirm your room. At that time, ask of a chance of an upgra...

Had a great time in The Ormond Hotel In Kilkenny. Staff are very helpfull and friendly. Rooms are very nice, kept very well and very clean and plenty of towels. Their was a double bed and a single bed in out room so no bother sleeping. The Ormond is very well located in the centre of kilkenny so you have all yourto sight seeing and shopping right on your doorstep. Breakfast in the hotel was excellent and again plenty of staff on hand to help you with any of your needs. The Hotel is well worth a visit.
