This is our second time staying in the hotel and we could not fault anything about it. From the very friendly and helpful staff to the comfortable rooms, the Kilkenny Hibernian is a great place to stay. The location is perfect, surrounded by plenty of restaurants, bars and shopping. Can’t wait to visit again 😊

I stayed here for 4 weeks while training for a new job.I cannot recommend The Hibernian Hotel enough. The staff were amazing, so friendly, helpful and accommodating. The food is unreal. I didn’t feel like I was living in a hotel for a month. It was like a home away from home and 5 stars doesn’t come close to represent this experience I had in The Hibernian. Guys I’ll be back in a personal capacity as soon as I get the chance!

Just back from a 2 night stay Hen weekend, we had a ball from start to finish. The location of the hotel was perfect, staff so helpful and obliging, nothing was too much for them. Cocktail class on Fri was great fun with Paddy, he was very patient with us. The food was a delicious 2 course dinner on Sat with prosecco. The rooms were clean and beds so comfortable. House keeping staff so pleasant. Really recommend the hotel. Thanks for looking after us so well.. Definitely be back.

Hi we stayed during the Easter break when visiting family from kilkenny, the hotel was everything we were told to expect, great rooms, friendly staff, excellent restaurant and located in the middle of the town, the sleep quality was excellent with oversized beds and fluffy pillows. Highly recommended

We stayed here on the first day of our road trip through Ireland. We arrived very early due to flight timing and were exhausted. The staff was amazing, got us in straight away for breakfast and took my number to let us know when a room was ready. They were able to get us in very early for a much needed nap. The rooms are spacious and well decorated. Would highly recommend!
