Butler Court
Ranked #3 of 75 Kilkenny B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 December 2017

My wife and I had been told to visit Kilkenny but really didn't have a clue what to expect. So, I check on line and found this spot and booked us in for a few nights. John and Yvonne responded quickly to my emails and we were welcomed upon our arrival with "open arms" or at least it seemed like it. The room, number 7, was on the second floor and was everything we could have asked for in comfort. Lovely bed, nice bathroom and areas to set up my computer and other electronics without a problem. While we had a car, which gets free parking close by, we never left Kilkenny but just stayed in town and explored. We visiting a number of spots - and did some shopping - but the highlight really was the Kilkenny Castle.

As I said to Yvonne (hostess), it's not a matter of if we come back but when! And we will certainly reach out to Butler Court for a place to stay.

We stumbled on this place in late August 2017 while we were a little lost and in fact, we liked it so much that we never actually made it to our target destination. The owners are very helpful, friendly and hospitable. John is a wealth of tourist information and is always happy to chat. The room was Large and the beds are all Super King size which was perfect for me being 6 foot 3". Very clean and comfortable room, even the shower was a good height for us taller people. The location was fabulous and we pretty much walked the entire village. We enjoyed great food, irish music, historic buildings, a castle, and some of the friendliest people in Ireland. The continental breakfast was very good, the bread was nothing like we have here in Australia but it was actually really nice. Overall, we left as happy travellers so thank you John and Yvonne from Ralf and Melissa Queensland Australia.

Room Tip: We chose up stairs where we found it more private, also the rear of the courtyard would be good.

Delightfully situated motor court which used to be castle stables. Clean, roomy with self catered breakfast. Hosts very solicitous hosts who were very helpful with travel tips. Even found us a great parking space for our vehicle.

This B & B is a fun place to spend a night or two. Bo Jr., the family dog, patrols the courtyard and personally welcomes each guest. The rooms come with continental breakfasts in the room. It's not fancy, but it's pleasant and definitely a bargain.

Room Tip: A popular place to stay, so book early. Friendly hosts and pet.

Very comfortable room, beautiful courtyard, and lovely host. John and Yvonne are so gracious and helpful. The location is perfect. Walking distance to everything, but quiet, calm and peaceful. Coffee, tea, fresh fruit, and wonderful yogurt and muesli made locally.
And best of all, Beau the dog! I highly recommend Butler Court.

Kilkenny is a lovely city and Butler Court was the perfect place to stay. Lovely courtyard setting within walking distance to everything we wanted to see. Plus, John and Yvonne have it arranged to park your car in a Parking Garage just down the street, no charge to us. NO driving for two days. Our room was more than spacious and very cozy. The continental breakfast in our room, mini frig, was great and more than enough. We very much enjoyed our stay and thank both John and Yvonne for being such gracious hosts.

The best of both worlds! A small , cozy, personal experience right in the middle of the city of Kilkenny! We parked, unloaded, and the owner, Yvonne, immediately made us feel so welcome. Our room is freshly painted, clean clean clean! Our fresh continental breakfast is ready and waiting, we can have whenever we are ready. plus.. Yvonne gave us a day full of activities for touring on foot tomorrow. Sooo glad to NOT get in the car! This will be one of our FAVORITE Irish memories!
