The Ormond is a nice hotel and centrally placed. The rooms are pleasing and in the restaurant both the food and service are excellent. Kilkenny is the chosen haunt of 'hen parties', many of whom stay at the Ormonde. Short skirts, big bums and 'Kiss Me Quick' hats are in evidence. Drunken revellers awoke us at 2. 3 and 4...

I have been a regular visitor to Kilkenny over the years and at one time or another I have stayed in most hotels there. The town has a very high standard in all aspects of hospitality and entertainment. I would have to say that the Ormonde sticks it's head a little higher over an already very tall parapet. We recently...

Spent one night at this property. The location is ideal. The Kilkenny castle is just around the corner from the hotel. The lobby is well appointed, very modern. Upon arrival into my room, one of the white bath towels hanging in the shower had big black scuff marks all over it, like someone used it to dry car tires. You...

First impression when walking into the hotel was brilliant. Staff were very professional and helpful. Rooms were clean, airy and very comfortable. Hotel was right on top of the car park, and just a very short walk to the historic Kilkenny castle which is well worth a visit.

Returned for a mid week break to this excellent hotel recently and was not disappointed. It really does tick all the boxes, friendly staff, spotlessly clean rooms, wonderful breakfast, perfect location for shopping and exploring other restaurants and bars. However the comfortable surroundings, cheerful staff and wide choice of beverages mean you wouldn't really have any reason to go out...
