I stayed here on a stag weekend and, while the Club House Hotel was functionally fine, I can't say I'd recommend it for the money we paid. The place just feels a bit decrepit and jaded - I'd expect more the prices we were paying (Euros 70 per person sharing per night).
The late bar was fun and I enjoyed that.
I didn't eat the breakfast but some of the guys reported that it was "horrible", which didn't surprise me, given the vibe of the hotel. But that was the only real complaint as such. If the price were cheaper, the Club House would have been fine for a lads weekend away, as it's functional, reasonably clean and well located.
The staff were fairly impersonal, not rude but just not really interested. I suppose they must get a lot of stags staying there, but a bit more interest from hotel staff is always pleasant. In general, I get the impression that Kilkenny itself is fed up of stags and hens.
In summary, I can't say I'd recommend the Club House.
