Loved Kilkenny. Lovely little town. The hotel is older but was well maintained and very clean and comfortable. We would definitely return. Had some of the best fish and chips there at the bar and I was all over Ireland. Great value.

There are so many things about this hotel I loved. It has so much charm and quirk. Every room is different and unique. However, it was an absolute maze to get to the rooms.

Our stay was grand. The staff were very helpful even the two waiters which were very funny to watch. I'm not sure if they were new or that was their way of working. Reminded me a little of the chuckle brothers. It's very close to everything. Kilkenny castle and the shopping centre and the night life. Would be great for...

Myself and my mother stayed in The Kilford Arms for one night as a little break away.
