Butler Court is a warm and inviting B & B tucked into the middle of Kilkenney. The hosts, Yvonne and John, were friendly and welcoming. I emailed Yvonne a few times before our trip over, and she responded right away. Our room was ready when we arrived, and it was clean, comfy and spacious. The next morning's breakfast was ready for us to enjoy at our leisure, and it was delicious! We enjoyed everything about our stay!

My husband and I stayed at Butler Court for two nights, and it was the best accommodation that we had while traveling through Ireland. It was quiet, comfortable and the owner was so helpful! We were warmly greeted, checked on during our stay and the owner was helpful in providing recommendations for things to do and places to eat. It felt very personal, and we hope that when we return to Ireland again, it will bring us to Butler Court!

We highly recommend a stay at Butler Court in Kilkenny! We just checked out today, and could not have had a better experience. If new hotels are built in Kilkenny, avoid them - this is the real Irish deal with Yvonne & John as lovely hosts (& of course, Bo The Sweet Dog!). The rooms are very well appointed (including great light and magnifying mirror for putting on makeup), and we’ve never had a better continental breakfast (tea, coffee with all the trimmings, luscious Irish yogurt, fresh brown bread - best we’ve had yet - fresh fruit) - all in the fresh air of the lovely courtyard. But best of all was the hospitality the Irish are known for…this was a perfect blend of having privacy/own room with loo) and experiencing the warmth of the hosts as they welcomed us, and acclimated us to Kilkenny with loads of advice. I only wish we could stay longer.

We found Yvonne and Bo the Dog to be absolutely delightful. Our room was sufficient and the property location was superb. Unfortunately, the noise level was problematic for us. I see from other reviews that this isn't always the case. Perhaps it was our room location? The street noise never stopped. We heard every conversation and activity in the room above us, as well as those in the courtyard. We got very little sleep our second night. I'd consider staying here again, but bring earplugs or a white noise machine.

My siblings and I were so pleased with our booking of 5 rooms in April 2022. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and pleasant. Yvonne is an ultimate host. You can tell she loves hosting guests and is eager to help with suggestions and is constantly available. Would highly recommend this convenient location near the castle.
