The Hibernian hotel is in a perfect location close to all the good bars and restaurants in kilkenny and also the castle. The hotel itself was comfortable with a good atmosphere but very average apart from that. Breakfast was good in the morning. There was good choice and the option for a fresh hot breakfast. I tried the fry one... More

Apparently, there has been a lot of renovation work on the bedrooms recently. The room that we had was in good order, though I did notice that some of the electrical sockets were a bit loose. (I didn't actually go round testing them, I noticed that they were a bit wobbly when plugging in appliances.) Our bathroom was a different... More

Everything about this hotel was exceptional! Staff, rooms, food, service, and atmosphere. Our stay was a short weekend. However our memories will be long and happy. We will definitely recommend this hotel.

We booked a standard king room but we were upgraded to a suite for the same rate! Included breakfast. There is an awesome bar with great food on property. Its located centrally in the town centre and... More

We were pleasantly surprised and had a wonderful stay in The Hibernian Hotel last weekend. The warm reception we received was complimented by the blazing fire in the bar, where we enjoyed a drink before exploring the City. The room was clean, spacious and the bed extremely comfortable. We asked for a peaceful location (to avoid late night revellers) and... More

I stay here last weekend for a girls weekend. The hotel itself is beautiful, the rooms were lovely and the nightclub downstairs was very good. But what made the weekend great was the staff. The night porters jason and brendan were excellent. They were very friendly and helpful. The bar staff and club bouncers were very friendly too. Also the... More
