Very pleasant stay for two nights, good sized rooms for a family of four. Staff were helpful (especially in the restaurant and bar) and breakfast was good. The central location is very convenient for the castle etc. although the flipside is that it was a little noisy outside (burglar alarm in the middle of the night and motorbikes once or... More

Just taking a few minutes out to review the Kilkenny Ormonde. A small group of 8 (middle aged...cough) men headed down there last weekend for an over-nighter in a futile attempt to convince the youngest of the group (32) to give serious thought to his impending wedding plans. Some might refer to it as a stag but we're well past... More

Recently stayed in this hotel for two nights.The hotel is very centrally located in the heart of Kilkenny. We parked our car up and ended up not using it for the whole weekend as we were easily able to walk around the city. Although the hotel does not have parking they offer very good value in the adjacent multi-storey car... More

Recently stayed in the Ormonde Hotel two nights for a wedding. Staff very friendly and most helpful. Leisure centre great to use, although I wish they would play background music of more southing nature. Location ideal for both walking the town, shopping and driving to outline tourist spots. Visit Kells village about 20 minute drive.

We were booked into the Ormonde via a tour of Ireland. There were three of us, and usually that means three twin beds in a room the same size as used for two people. The Ormonde gave us a huge room, which was more than twice the size of the standard size room. Needless to say, we were very comfortable.... More

It seems that this hotel, which served us so well at Easter, has undergone a bit of a change. If I had to guess at the change, I would say staff cuts.
