This was an excellent hotel. It was centrally located near the main tourist attraction - Kilkenny Castle. The room was unairconditioned so you had to adjust temperature with opening and closing the window. Parking was available. Breakfast was provided and you got to sit and view the castle high above on the other side of the river while enjoying great service and food. There was a great place for reasonably priced meals and drinks late into the night. We used the hotel as a base for exploring the town of Kilkenny. Walking down the streets of town you would be surprised when all of a sudden a building or church from centuries ago would just appear right next to a modern building. We used a walking map provided by the hotel to explore the city. The castle was self-guided. We used our cell phone to bring up a description of each room that we had downloaded prior to taking our trip. This guide was provided by Rick Steves online.
