Stayed here last weekend. It is nice and the concierge at reception was so friendly. The spa is really nice but the service in the bar at lunch and dinner was so slow. It was not the staffs fault, there was just low on staff and that really let them down. The food was amazing though at lunch and dinner....

Just back from a lovely night. We booked the girls night in package which was €150 per person. Best value ever. The afternoon tea was amazing and the dinner was 1st class. Mikado Cheesecake an amazing highlight. The staff were so friendly and made the experience all the better I will most certainly be back soon!!!

I was here for a hen party, one of many here as it turns out. They seem to have cut themselves a niche market here. And for 125 EUR they've made it affordable luxury. The price included a shared room, a three course meal and breakfast. All of it was excellent. Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely doorman...

I've stayed here a number of times on short family breaks. Always found the staff to be extremely friendly and welcoming. The hotel is situated just outside of Kilkenny, on its own estate so its secluded and quiet, but still only a short drive from Kilkenny center. So your getting the best of everything. My kids love the place. The...

This is a long review, sorry - I've reviewed Yindees restaurant separately but simply put - AMAZING! We booked the Girls Allowed package for four of us arriving the 10th of October. We arrived at about 4.30pm and there was a wedding taking place so there was little children in their fancy dresses and little suits playing outside which added...

We stayed for 3 nights with our 5 and 3 year olds and had a lovely break. The place itself is beautiful and has lovely grounds. We were upgraded to penthouse suite which was pure luxury! The kids club was great and we made real use of it, along with the pool and playground (although small). Breakfast was lovely and...

Second trip here and hotel is still beautiful. Very chic and modern. Love the décor of the rooms-if its a treat splurge on a suite you wont be disappointed .Yindees food is beautiful but also have a traditional restaurant if thai is not your thing. 5 mins into Kilkenny city if you fancy getting out of the hotel.

This really is a fabulous option for a few days break. The hotel is located a few kilometres outside of Kilkenny city, in a large estate and golf course. Staff were really excellent in the hotel, from check-in to housekeeping, bar staff and spa attendants. Everyone was friendly and helpful, without being intrusive. Special mention to Sean Cork in Tubbers...
