Room and view were fabulous. Was worth paying extra for a delux room. Rose on the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful! Highly recommended. Great location. 5euro overnight for secure parking is excellent. Would definitely stay here again

Stayed here last weekend for my hen. From the moment I began the booking/planning process I knew it would be a great experience as staff were so easy deal with. On arrival we were given the 'Butler Room' which was huge. We had a pre dinner nibbles in the room with the rest of the 37 hens only to be provided with extra seating. Where else would you get this ? Ate in the hotel restaurant on the Saturday night and WOW. Not one complaint - amazing for such a large group ! There were no delays between courses and the food was delicious. I don't like to mention too many names for fear of forgetting someone but restaurant manager Anna definitely knows how to make things run smoothly.
I was particulary impressed with the breakfast. The deadline was 10.30 but at 11am they were still replacing cheese, grapes, croissants, etc instead of removing them from the display.
All staff were pleasant and welcoming. Porters were on the ball to carry out requests even going beyond their call of duty. Hotel was spotless and parking so reasonable for such a central location. I'll definitely be back as will a lot of my friends. So, thank you all for a fantastic weekend. I'm a bit of a worrier so its particulary nice to hear everyone else was so happy with their stay and a huge relief to me. Keep up the good work. Declan Moriarty, you should be very proud of your team.

Really nice hotel first time to stay there and will be back soon. Great views of the castle and its right in the center of town. Had food there on both nights and both food and service were excellent. The bedroom was spacious and clean with all the usual amenities. Really nice all rounder if you wanted a quiet weekend away or there is some great pubs close by if its a night out on the town.

Relaxing night at Kilkenny River Court Hotel. Found the room at the last minute or I would have tried the spa treatments too. Nice, clean, comfortable room, great views, good food. Only oddity was having to leave a room key in a slot by the light switches to keep the power on. Appreciate the effort to conserve but it was not explained.

Celebrated our wedding anniversary in Kilkenny River Court at the week-end. The Reservation
Staff & reception were brilliant, friendly and efficient. What can be said about the Dining experience, the food in the restaurant was superb, what a fantastic chef! The River Court is centrally located so it is ideal for shopping, sightseeing and music. Definitely a hotel stay not to be missed!
