The Ormonde is a newer hotel near to central Kilkenny. They have a lovely bar/parlor area and a few restaurants as well. The hotel is newer and in good condition. There is no air conditioning and given that it was rather warm the day we were there, that made for an uncomfortable night's rest. The beds were also very firm....

The hotel is perfectly situated for wandering around the town and the rooms are a food size... Just felt a little tired and not clean. The sports facility was amazing as it is part of a sports club including a full size pool with lanes. The redemptive feature was the brunch... One of the beat we had all week while...

Stayed in this hotel twice now and I look forward to a third time. The staff are extremely friendly and will go the extra mile to help you. The hotel itself is beautiful, it's clean and very relaxing and as it's situated in the city is so close to everything. I could go on for ages about how much I...

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...

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...

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...

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....
