“Cant beat the location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Great location, right in the heart of things. Lovely couple that own the place that are super friendly and helpful! Their dog Bob is very cute and friendly as well. It was very clean and well kept. I would definitely stay here again!

This is a lovely place to stay. Yvonne is so helpful and accommodating. She understands how weary travelers
feel and makes them comfortable from the moment of their arrival. It's like staying at her home and being taken
care of like you are family. I would definitely stay here again. Kilkenny is lovely as well and the location is tops.

if you come to Kilkenny you definitely have to stay here. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and stylish for a very good price.
Bob the Dog will probably visit you in the morning after getting out of your room.
It is in the Center of Kilkenny.
We enjoyed our Stay and will come again if we can
Thanks a lot for making our Ireland Trip so nice.

stayed 2 nights,friendly and helpful owners, room was a good size and nice bathroom. they serve a continental breakfast which was perfect to get our day going(good coffee). Location is very good, you can easily walk to the castle, restaurants and Pubs.
Only area that could improve was better water pressure.

We had quite a good stay in butler court, but I have some things to complain about.
First, the breakfast: we did not enjoy the self-service breakfast in the room, especially considering we paid 100 euro per night; breakfast was not good and in general we would have preferred having the breakfast with the owner and the other guests.
Second, I really missed curtains! We had to choose between artificial light or exposition to the other guests while changing our clothes.
Beside this, the room was confortable and clean, and well furnished. At the end, the position is central and is really easy to reach pubs and monuments.

We only stayed at Butler Court for one night, but would have stayed longer if travel plans permitted. The courtyard is charming, and the location is ideal. Our room was clean, up-to-date, quiet, and was plenty large enough for my husband and myself. We knew before going that the breakfast was a continental one placed in our rooms so had no expectations of anything else. It was perfectly adequate (and after a few days of full Irish breakfasts and pub meals, it was actually a relief). Yvonne was very welcoming, and soooo helpful. She helped us print our boarding passes for Ryanair and coached us through their web page, showing us what not to click on and saving us $$$ (if you've ever flown Ryanair you know what I'm talking about). I would definitely stay there again.
