We emailed the hotel asking for a quiet room and received one...other than the fact we couldn't keep our window open due to the outside kitchen exhaust. Our friends received a nice king-size bed, while we received a MUCH smaller bed. Now we wonder why we even bothered to email the hotel, our friends didn't email and received a better...

For a hotel that was recommended to us we were really disappointed with the room we were given and especially its cost! €150 per night (apparently a special discounted price on booking.com) yet the room we had was simply a glorified box room with a large single bed, it was clear upon exiting the lift to the right in the...

I had lunch at the hotel a couple of weeks ago and decided to book for a corporate delegation. The staff were incredibly helpful and dealt professionally with our numerous requests and changes. The surprises are the bedrooms - they are amazing and quite a contrast to the ground floor spaces! Food and service top class and the staff very...

What a disappointment. It claims to be a 4 star hotel but didn't have a porter to help with bags or valet park the car. The Hotel uses a nearby multi-storey car park and claims to cover the parking charges in the room tariff. Not entirely true. They cover the charges from 6pm on the day of arrival to 12...

Went to the Hibernia restaurant for food, seated quickly, food ordered and arrived quickly. Old furniture but nice and warm. Ordered soup all round for starters and 8oz steak with chunky chips and chicken supreme for mains. Sausage and chips for the young man. No complaints and I must say one of the most tender steaks I've eaten it's was...

Arrived with my husband for a one night stay. Receptionist was distracted looking for a lost jacket. When she finally checked us in there was no welcome, I was asked to please put "the gentlemans" name on the check in form, which was quite embarrassing despite being his wife of 30 years. We had booked a penthouse and were given...

well, it started bad early, with the receptionist not acknowledging me as a customer (not even a potential one) even though I had saluted her, introduced myself and began talking to her regarding a room at the hotel. Not even remotely nice, not cooperative, only really engaged in any pertinent communication when I mentioned I had used Booking services to...

Stayed at the Hibernian during a business trip and had a really great stay. The staff were friendly and very efficient rigjt from the moment I checked in. The restaurant served great food for the evening meal and breakfast and the room was spacious with a very comfortable bed. It is in an excellent location being 100 yards from the...

Visited the Hibernian for my nieces Hen party. It couldnt have been better. The food is the best in Kilkenny. Athmosphere is brilliant & the staff are so friendly. There were 20 of us for the weekend , our rooms were lovely & we were very well taken care of. The hotel is in the centre of everything, night life...

Stayed for one night for work and thought it was a very nice hotel. Very opulent decor, comfortable rooms with very fancy schmancy furniture. TV was a bit small and no fridge, but kettle and coffee machine were provided and the shower was stellar.
