Reviewed 28 September 2014

Visited this hotel when on a tour with Brendan tours. The hotel is right in the middle of town. Killkenny is a very interesting town to walk around, narrow medieval streets lined with shops. Very close to Killkenny Castle. We were on the top floor and it was a bit warm. Overall a very nice hotel. Would definitely return.

Something very nice about this hotel - well-appointed rooms with free WiFi and all mod cons. The room rate includes breakfast (time your breakfast to avoid rush hour) and the food in the bar is very nicely presented, quality fare. There's a sports club across the road which can be used, and parking in Q is included. Cheerful, helpful staff....

Norman, OK
Reviewed 23 September 2014

I loved Kilkenny. Such a nice city and so many things to see. The staff at the Ormonde were very nice and helpful. My issue was with the room. The pillows were terrible and gave us a bad night's sleep. The bathroom was just okay. It's a little dreary and could use a remodel. The location is very good though.

The Ormond is a nice hotel and centrally placed. The rooms are pleasing and in the restaurant both the food and service are excellent. Kilkenny is the chosen haunt of 'hen parties', many of whom stay at the Ormonde. Short skirts, big bums and 'Kiss Me Quick' hats are in evidence. Drunken revellers awoke us at 2. 3 and 4...

I have been a regular visitor to Kilkenny over the years and at one time or another I have stayed in most hotels there. The town has a very high standard in all aspects of hospitality and entertainment. I would have to say that the Ormonde sticks it's head a little higher over an already very tall parapet. We recently...
