“Charming guest house, centrally located”
Reviewed 17 December 2011

Stayed two nights for holiday in September.
Perfect location in centre of town though on main street - some noise but did not bother us.
Free parking for guests behind building (accessed from back street).
Building is somewhat older but our room was clean and spacious.
Full Irish breakfast was hearty and hosts were charming and chatty.
Free wifi available but did not quite extend to our room on the third floor.
Additional tips would be to dine at Foodworks and the Design Centre cafe!

Berkeley House was lovely. It is a great location, just around the corner from Kilkenny Castle. It is just a short walking distance from many pubs, restaurants, and shops. We were there for the final game of the Hurling championship. The whole county was partying on the street ourtside, our room was quiet and restful. Billy and Theresa were very helpful. The airline lost one of our bags and they helped us call about it and made sure we got it when the city was in joyous celebration from winning the game. We were on the third floor and there isn't a lift. Just be aware of that possibility. I would love to stay here again.

We travelled as a couple and had a tight budget. We stayed for four nights and found Berkeley House perfect for our needs. It is centrally located and comes with a private car park which is very handy. The room and ensuite were clean and tidy and the breakfast was to a very high standard. We agree with reviews that state that this is not a hotel and that it can be a little cold at night however overall we feel we got more than what we paid for.

I stayed here midweek as the Ormonde Hotel, where we stayed two weeks previous, was full. Very surprised that this premises is in the hotel category? Don't get me wrong, it's fine, but it is not a hotel? There are no facilities to speak of. If you are just looking for a bed, ok, but if you are looking for a hotel, this is not for you.
