Start at the front desk. The girls at the desk were very pleasant, the guys were abysmal and very unprofessional. Bar - waiting staff are lovely. But there is a reason they are called waiting staff. We were left waiting ages for our food (both nights) and the first night when it did arrive both our meals were cold. Second...

We were two couples staying for New Year's Eve and New Year's day. Initial impression good and rooms on 1st floor very good. Bar OK but seating ridiculous. Our deal was dinner for New Year and B&B for New Year's day. The New Year's eve dinner included a 'champagne' reception which no-one knew about until we happened to see a...

Absolutely fantastic hotel. Set in beautiful grounds just outside Kilkenny. Was quite busy for early in the week so there was a nice bizz without being overcrowded. Dinner was amazing and well worth the money. Staff friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The same can be said for breakfast. Excellent range for all tastes. The bar, like most hotel bars,...

Had a Christmas 2014 stay here with my wife and three children. Nice looking place but average enough when one looks under the bonnet. Lobby is expansive but a very cold place and not very welcoming. Downstairs bar is badly laid out and seating is awful with cup leather chairs which only allow about two to three people seating. It...
