We stayed last week, and have stayed before, but never reviewed. The hotel is in a brilliant location right in the heart of Kilkenny, close to the castle, St. Canice's round tower, shops, restaurants and pubs. Parking is directly across from the hotel, €5 per day, excellent value. The room was spotless, the breakfast menu had everything you could ask...

Roisin at reception was super helpful, friendly and full of information. She recommended and booked a table at The Salt Yard. We had an amazing...

Good location in the centre of Kilkenny, everything within walking distance. The only negative my husband & I have about the Ormonde hotel is the breakfast is not a tranquil experience. Its like Piccadilly circus. The breakfast room is too small for the volume of people. 10am is too early to close the breakfast service down. A couple next to...
