Myself and my girlfriend stayed in Step House last friday night and then Kilkenny on saturday night. Really wished we had done it the other way around, as kilkenny hotel was the usual hen night mess and Borris was such a lovely relaxing time. We had been to the step house hotel for a meal last feb and promised we would be back to stay. It took a while, but we finally made it and it certainly didn't disappoint. We ate in the bar this time, as we got down late enough and didn't really fancy a formal dinner. The food in the bar is fabulous as well and really nice atmosphere.
Beautiful hotel, lovely room, great staff, wonderful location, tasty breakfast. We couldn't ask for more and certainly couldn't fault it.

We'll be back.

Room Tip: Book well in advance. Lots of weddings and hard enough to get rooms

Second visit to Step House Hotel, this time for a birthday party. Our hosts James & Cait Cody and their family always make everyone feel welcome. A bright fire in the lobby sets the tone and the genuineness of Aisling and her fellow receptionists augers well for ones stay. Rooms are beautifully appointed, though the TV channels are limited! Food is really excellent - well done main Chef Alan, a family member. Another plus are the great scenic walks around Borris. This family run boutique hotel is well worth a visit - a popular spot for weddings with lovely private gardens off the function room .
Another visit a must for us. Thank you all the Cody/Foley family. F&F

Room Tip: Plan you break by deciding where you would like to see before arriving in this small Co Carlow town

I've been here four times now and it's 60 miles away from my house in Dublin. Keep coming back. Unbelievable food (award winning) and a great wine list. Not cheap, but the best things in life rarely. Great value for money. Can't recommend this enough. I haven't stayed but the restaurant is Michelin quality

My wife and I received a gift of a night in Step House, it was a rainy November afternoon and we arrived into the most welcoming atmosphere, with open fires and smiling staff, the room was large, warm, comfortable, with interiors to die for, we met the owner and her daughter, they were so friendly and accommodating, they really looked after us and our little guest Louis, Borris is a beautiful town with Step House being the Jewel in the crown, we can't wait to return.

I am just back from a lovely stay at the Step House Hotel. Myself and my partner stayed for one night. The room was gorgeous, very comfortable, the bathroom was very spacious and the bed which was in the centre of the room overlooking the huge bay windows was huge.

We had a beautiful dinner in Rubens with every course being recommended by the waiting staff. there was one very nice, professional waitress whose recommendations hit the nail on the head every course. really enjoyed it.

The pub was a nice little spot with a great deal on prosecco. All the staff in this hotel were some of the best we've ever encountered, from the restaurant to the reception desk to the pub 1808, they were friendly and accommodating.

We are already planning our next trip to this hotel and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to go for some unbelievable grub and a comfortable nights stay.
