Great location. It is walking distance to all historical locations, shops and restaurants. Comfortable and clean room. Parking is a bit out of the way, but it was not a problem. WIFI is available in the lobby.

We stayed 2 nights in Kilkenny and had a wonderful time. Great location, quiet room, nice hot water and slept like a baby. Enjoyed everyone we met and delicious breakfast too. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed one night in Berkeley House,Kilkenny city, we booked two rooms as there were three of us . On arrival we asked if breakfast was included , we were assured that it was and told that even if we came to dining room after 10 o c we would get food . We were told that it was served from 8 30am til 10 00am. The rooms were clean and spacious . I informed the lady at reception that the bulb in the bedroom was blown ,also the light and shaver unit in bathroom was nt working ,she told me she had nt a replacement for these,my husband had to go to the other room,which was on the next floor to shave .The next morning we were down to breakfast at 9 45 am. We assumed that we would get a cooked breakfast as the sign outside stated BED AND BREAKFAST E40 . The same lady said we would only get continental breakfast . when we went to buffet table [the window sill] there was fruit ,yoghurt , cereal 3 slices of rubber ham and few slices of salami.I asked for more meat to be served and was told," i had a full house last night and breakfast was on since 8 30" . This was most disappointing especially as we could have stayed in a nearby hotel with full irish breakfast for E45.Kilkenny is a beautiful city and the people very friendly , but the treatment we recieved at berkeley house was the worst that we experienced anywhere .

We arrived in Kilkenny on a whim on a Saturday night. They had one room left, so we worried it wouldn't be up to par, but it was lovely - lofty ceilings, a gorgeous back-facing view of the old castle walls and greenery. Hopped across to the hotel for a great dinner (have the lamb) and some drinks.
Excellent value.

The people were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was pretty good but the rooms were badly in need of refurbishment. Bathrooms were old. Beds appeared to be on slats with no box spring. We had two rooms and both were in need of improvement. Good location though.

Berkeley House is the PERFECT LOCATION in Kilkenny. It is literally only steps to the historical mile walk, less than a block from the ATM, a short walk to the best restaurants and pubs (WITH MUSIC) in town. TERESA is the MASTER OF THE HOUSE. Her recommendations were impeccable.

Stayed here 11/5 for a girls night out in Kilkenny. It was great value for money for a Saturday night in Kilkenny - very central, friendly and helpful staff, clean, comfortable room. For a value break with basic accommodation it was perfect. Breakfast was good and I will return.
