One night in Kilkenny

One night in Kilkenny

Hi! We (2 adults in our mid 50's, young at heart) will be in Kilkenny on 8/28 for 1 night. Trying to decide on a hotel, as there are not many options at this late date. I have narrowed my search down to theses three: Kilkenny River Court hotel, Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel, and Hotel Kilkenny. Any insight as to the pro and cons of these hotels would be greatly appreciated. Any visitor tips are also welcome! Thank you!

You'll not go wrong with any of those good hotels.

But for me, the River Court location would swing it.

Hotel Kilkenny would be about 15 minutes walk from the very centre of town.In the other 2to, I'd be asking for really quiet rooms so as not to be swamped wedding or hen party noise.

On location I would go for the Rivercourt or the Ormonde.

I have stayed in Hotel Kilkenny a couple of times but now prefer to be right in the centre of town.

On our recent trip, we stayed at the Pembroke and it was lovely.

We spent 1 night at the Pembroke last month and it was great... air conditioning, good location right around the corner from Kilkenny Castle, free buffet breakfast.

We had a fabulous Italian dinner at La Rivista... the Carbonara was AMAZING!
