“Weekend trip”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

Had a wonderful weekend in Hotel K despite the horrible weather. My object was to visit the old buildings in the city, and this hotel is perfectly situated, being near enough to walk or a short drive if preferred.
Good rooms, nice decor. Very friendly and efficient staff, and first class meals. \\\\\\room spotlessly clean, same for bathroom.
Overall a good experience, and well worth a return visit in better weather conditions.

Room Tip: The ground floor was very quiet. Perfect! Maybe not a good hotel for a noisy "lads" weeken...

This is a great hotel - Met the same bunch of mates two years in a row here in Jan and we were as impressed as ever and considering a returen for a third time! We were on a ladiess weekend but I imagine a family is just as welcome! Clean, tidy but lovely cosy and comfy (except that insane clown pictur in the bar) great decor in the rooms, friendly well trained staff who can have a laugh, Lovely leisure centre etc.

Room Tip: I was on the groundfloor this time. Lovely room I just have a thing about ground floor view was nice...

Great hotel. 2nd time I've stayed here on business and just booked my 3rd for tonight rather than go in to Dublin.
Bar staff are very friendly as us the reception staff also. Nothing is too much trouble.
The only thing is that the gym could do with a bit of a refurb, old machines and a bit of a battered floor.
Other than that, great.

Definitely be back when we come to Ireland next.

Went for a 2 night break to Hotel Kilkenny. Hotel was spotless and tastefully decorated inside. The place was buzzing all weekend with music in the bar each night. Service in the restaurant and bar was excellent. Staff very friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely and relaxing and warm. The facilities pool, sauna, jacuzzi were excellent and very clean. Would definately go back there again and would highly recommend it as a romantic/relaxing get away. Thanks again for a lovely weekend.

Room Tip: We had a deluxe room included in our special package. Very comfortable, spotless and quiet.

Just back from a lovely weekend at the Hotel Kilkenny. Booked a package which included breakfast, dinner on one night and a spa treatment each. Found this to be very good value. The dinner was excellent 3 courses and plenty of choice. The spa treatments were also very enjoyable. Stayed in a deluxe room and would highly recommend the upgrade very spacious and nicely decorated. The hotel was very busy with lots of functions over the weekend but this did not impact our stay at all. Breakfast was very busy on the Sunday however there was a second room set up to accommodate the overflow. The leisure centre was also very well kept and we enjoyed all the facilities on offer. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a relaxing weekend away with easy access to kilkenny city.

The bar and restaurant food is delicious and good value.The staff at this hotel are so friendly, especially the waiter Jack in the restaurant, he is super friendly and very attentive.
