Our first hotel in Ireland! Great staff, comfortable room, and the breakfast was so delicious! They were very accommodating to our multitude of questions. :-) They have a nice restaurant/pub connected so after an adventure out and about, it's easy to have a nightcap before a great night's sleep.

We only stayed for one night in a lovely room with patio area. The staff were extremely friendly on reception. The Breakfast in the morning is excellent. Although I think the service and greeting of people was bit slow. Food was excellent when we did get it. The Hotel is well set out, very nice inside, and centrally located, it...

Went to stay in this hotel with my boyfriend, We bought the hotel deal online, for 1 night stay with a 2 glasses of prosecco on arrival, and a bottle of wine at dinner as well as full irish breakfast for just 90 euro. Staff were excellent, friendly and welcoming. Room was spacious and clean, really enjoyed our stay

Stayed here for Saint Patrick's weekend and have to say was very impressed. We booked a Deluxe room which was very big and had a balcony. Rooms were very clean, although the bed was 2 single beds pushed together which does annoy me. Food in restaurant was good, staff were great especially the girl who worked Saturday and Sunday afternoon....

Hotel is nice and modern; lobby and lounge are nice, lovely outdoor terrace and nice sized rooms. Rooms are decorated nice but the one we had was starting to show a little aging and could use a deep cleaning. Not dirty enough I would recommend against the hotel, still nice. Hotel sits on the edge of city center so an...

Our overnight stay was a gift from our daughter, we arrived knowing little of Hotel Kilkenny. It is located on the Callan side of town, it's location is a comfortable walk to the always interesting centre of this compact city. The feel of the place upon arrival one wet but busy Friday evening reeked of quality. This feeling carried through...
