The staff were extremely nice and the restaurant was good. It is an easy walk to all of the attractions and the hotel is in a rather quiet area. I was with a tour, so I'm not certain about price. The others in our groups seemed satisfied, too.

Absolute perfection! Clean, friendly staff, great location! Very comfortable castle view room - even had a Nespresso coffee maker. Couldn't have wanted for anything more. Can't recommend it highly enough.

A gem of a hotel right in the heart of the city. I stayed here midweek in November, as you can imagine it was quite cold outside but this was offset by the extremely warm welcome of the friendly receptionist. Its location is perfect for a shopping trip and is in close proximity to a great range of fantastic shops.... More

Kilkenny is one of those mythically medieval Irish towns that lives up to its reputation, and this was a lovely find, just the perfect hotel for our first night in Ireland.

Dear Ed_Uyeshima, Thank you for your great review. Glendalough on a normal day is not a great drive especially if you come through the Wicklow Mountains, you were very brave to do it after landing!!

Stayed here for the second time this year. Upon arrival to our room, they had left a "welcome back" note with chocolates - a very nice touch. The room is one of the best I've stayed in; it's very clean, big and comfortable. Breakfast was very good too. Would definitely come back again.
