We booked recently to see Damien Dempsey and Jack L in the Set Theatre in Kilkenny and were very fortunate to book a most magnificient hotel in Kilkenny for the two nights of the gigs. The Kilkenny Ormonde is one of the best hotels I was ever in. From the moment you step into the foyer which is totally immaculate, you are greeted by the lovely staff on reception and take in the atmosphere , you know you are on a winner! Everything about this hotel is top class. Our room was stylish, comfortable and well maintained. Our breakfasts were second to none and again the staff were so friendly , professional and efficient. The icing on the cake for me was the way in which the staff prepared for a wedding party on that day. The red carpet was laid out and heart shaped candle holders lined the entrance to the hotel. Again inside , was a beautiful display of candles for the couple. Check it out anyone thinking of Kilkenny for their big day!! It was clear from the staff member who was constantly checking the carpet , the level of care the wedding party could expect in the hotel.
We went back on Saturday night after the gig in the Set , as Kilkenny itself was buzzing on that night. The Hotel had live music in the bar and was a great finish to our evening. !! I would also recommend the Hotel Spa and leisure facilities. The Spa has offers on if you feel like treating yourself. Again check it out on the hotel website. I must mention also the central location you enjoy while staying in the Ormonde. You are right in the heart of Kilkenny city , a stones throw from the castle.!!
Looking forward to staying again in the Kilkenny Ormonde and hope this review is helpful.
