Visited kilkenny recently for our wedding anniversary, and from the minute we entered the ormonde we felt welcome. We were upgraded to a suite (for whatever reason I don't know!). Nice pool, nice sauna and steam, if a little small. Very central hotel, within 2 minutes stroll to the castle and plenty of bars etc. All the staff we met... More

Everyone in the group ohhhhed and ahhhhed. Great parking structure... More

spent a lovely weekend in a lovely hotel, staff very friendly and helpful . We stayed B+B and ordered room service for breakfast at a very reasonable rate each morning,which was delivered on time every morning, and delicious. Would certainly recommend this hotel for a nice relaxing break in the heart of a lovely city.

Fab hotel. In the heart of Kilkenny and only 10 mins from the train station. Staff were very helpful & friendly. Food was delicious & very reasonable. Prices for b&b were also very reasonable. I would recommend this hotel if you're thinking of going to Kilkenny!

I have to be upfront and say that this is not the first occasion that we have stayed in this hotel - it is always our first choice when we are down this way - and for good reason. It does not set out to be flashy and glitz, it may not even be the most modern (sorry) but in... More

Visited this hotel when on a tour with Brendan tours. The hotel is right in the middle of town. Killkenny is a very interesting town to walk around, narrow medieval streets lined with shops. Very close to Killkenny Castle. We were on the top floor and it was a bit warm. Overall a very nice hotel. Would definitely return.
