I recently organised a family weekend for a group of 70 people (mainly families and children from babies to adults) From the very beginning everyone was enormously helpful and could not do enough for us. As we all arrived at different times we were delighted that check in was so quick and easy. The Hotel is in great location, close to everything. Rooms were spotless. There was a very friendly atmosphere throughout the hotel and the staff were excellent. Some of our families needed little extras and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast buffet was lovely, piping hot and plenty of everything. Bar food was quick and tasty, and others ate in the restaurant and gave great feedback. I would highly recommend the Kilkenny Ormonde and we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We had rooms on all floors and nobody had any complaints.

Really enjoyed my one night stay recently at this hotel. Central location, although very quiet, made walking around Kilkenny a delight. Enjoyed using the pool and jacuzi. Breakfast was excellent. Have recommended to others visiting Kilkenny

Stayed here for two nights and was not disappointed. Hotel is lovely, nice large rooms very comfortable beds, breakfast buffet very good and the breakfast staff could not be more helpful, we also had dinner on one of the evenings and it was excellent would definitely recommend it.
The hotel is in a very central location close to lots of bars and restaurants and the car park is just across the road a €5 per day. The hotel also seems to cater well for children. I would definitely go back to this hotel and would highly recommend it.

Stayed two nights here with our two children. Staff were so friendly from the moment we arrived. Breakfast was lovely and the restaurant for our evening meal was just what we needed as a family. Very family friendly hotel. Probably the most family friendly hotel I'm stayed in with my children. The children had a ball and so did we. The Ormond should be very proud of their staff as they are so wonderful.clearly looked after and happy staff. We will DEFINITELY RETURN AGAIN. this hotel is great for all persons not just families. There we're plenty of different groups there for all occasions, there was a stag, some sort of formal event on to which the room for it was just BEAUTIFULLY decorated! The stag party from what I could see we're having a great time. The kilkenny Ormond hotel cater for all persons and all occasions and I would not hesitate in going back. We look forward to our return.

Booked for 2 days over midterm with my husband and two kids...very good deal so wasn't expecting too much! But from moment we arrived it was a great experience. The reception staff were extremely friendly and courteous as were all the staff we met during our stay. Hotel had a lovely relaxed atmosphere, it was very well maintained. Our tap broke but from moment we brought it to attention of staff it was dealt with. The manager on duty (think it was Colin) was a great example of Irish hospitality and obviously understands the value of customer satisfaction! Excellent location, value, facilities and staff..what more could you want?
