I was here for my friends wedding and it was beautiful. The man who checked me in was very friendly and helpful. We had a private drinks reception which was a very warm and comfortable room. Although I had booked a single room, I couldn't believe I had a single and double bed in the room. The room for the... More

Myself and my fiancée spent two glorious days in Hotel Kilkenny, the staff were nothing but great hosts. We ate in the hotel and found it to be great surprises, very good food. The menu was limited but excellent value for money. Location is a little further than we expected from Kilkenny town, but as the weather was kind to... More

Our arrival was a nice drive. The grounds are pretty but you always feel like your at some kind of hotel complex. The lobby is nice, it was good to see a program for kids, though we did take any kids. Our room was a disappointment! This hotel was sold as a 4/5 Star Hotel, not even close. The best... More
