Lovely clean well designed hotel. Food is fantastic as are the leisure facilities. My kids went to the kids club which advertised that meals are included. I booked this break as the kids menus looked so good. Sadly as there weren't enough children attending the club all my kids got was pizza or chips/nuggets. I did get a free meal...

We recently stayed here with a very active toddler. We enjoyed it so much, mainly down to the really obliging staff. Nothing was too much trouble. We ate in the hotel most of the time and the food was excellent. Really good value for money. Our room was a little on the small side but looking back we should have...

Stayed here for one night, grand quite hotel with nice friendly staff. Ate in the bar, very good menu and reasonably priced. Simple clean warm rooms. Few little things though, while looking for a USB port on the tv I noticed quite the build up of dust. The water pressure in the shower was very poor. And when we went...

Hotel Kilkenny is a grand hotel, nothing overly fancy about it. We stayed in a Deluxe room and I'm glad we did. The bathroom was lovely but the room itself was a bit 'used' so I can only imagine what a standard room would be like. I had asked for a balcony room but seeing as we were on the...

Our annual family weekend brought us to Hotel Kilkenny - all 14 of us - ageing from my "mature"years to our youngest grandson's 4. It was just wonderful. Weather conditions weren't conducive to sightseeing so much of our time was spent in the hotel. Spacious, wonderful food, very comfortable, lovely helpful staff....all the ingredients for a special weekend. The facilities...

Friendly staff. Comfortable spacious standard bedrooms. Nice bathroom. Relaxed atmosphere in bar. Pancakes for breakfast were delicious. Breakfast nice. Only two negative things to mention firstly asked for early check in however room wasn't ready. Secondly door in room out to balcony had cold draft coming in and bit noisy when windy. Otherwise enjoyed our stay and will stay again....

My husband and I stayed here for a 2 night getaway! Kilkenny is a wonderful vibrant city to visit! Full of life and history! The hotel itself is a 5 minute walk from city centre. It's clean and warm and the bar food is fabulous! We would definitely stay here again! Great experience!

Nice hotel just a short taxi ride from the city centre. I got a good price and was keen on the lesiure centre. The public areas of the hotel are modern and bright. The bedroom was large, but felt a bit dated in comparison to the rest of the hotel. But it was clean and everything worked, so no point...
