“Perfect host for our first two nights in Ireland”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

We loved our stay last week at Butler Court. Yvonne was helpful and welcoming and immediately responded to any concerns (one of the outlets in our room had stopped working due to recent construction, and she and her husband couldn't have been more helpful and apologetic about it--I have no doubt it got fixed the moment we checked out!). The room was large and spotlessly clean--it also appeared to have been recently painted. The bathroom was large and warm (always a concern) and toiletries had been provided for us. The in-room fridge breakfast was a great way to start our trip to Ireland--we had early check-in on our arrival day and were able to snack on scones, then take a nap before exploring Kilkenny.

Bob the dog paid us a visit on day 2 and we were happy to have the chance to play with him. Yvonne was always quick to share advice or just to chat about Ireland and Kilkenny. We would definitely return to Butler Court.

We stayed at Butler Court in September. As advertised, Bob the dog was there to greet us when we arrived. The Innkeeper was very helpful and readily provided recommendations for restaurants and sights. Our room was nicely updated and best of all very quiet. I loved the fact that this B&B was right in the heart of town yet very private and quiet. Free parking around the block. Nice stay!

I was visiting cousins in the Kilkenny area when I booked my two night stay at the Butler Court. I was very pleased with the room, bathroom and whole setting of this well maintained establishment. The owners were very pleasant and I had a very satisfied stay at this secure, quiet and very clean residence. I stayed there on 14 and 15 january 2012.

I complemented John (the owner) on the fine craftsmanship that was very evident in his work and upkeep. I would not hesitate to stay here again and bring the wife this time. Thanks Yvone for the nice reception and delicious scones. Fine work, John.

Room Tip: #9 was a very pleasant and quiet room with a fine bathroom.

Very nice establishment! The price was good, the owners were very friendly and helpful, location was great (everything was within walking distance), and clean, spacious rooms. The owners provided us with continental breakfast in our mini fridge, which had quite a variety of options. It was nice to be able to make coffee in the morning that wasn't the instant kind!

We will definitely stay here again if we find ourselves back in Kilkenny!

Wonderful place to stay. Yvonne & John Dalton were very helpful and welcoming! Bob the dog was a pleasure. Sitting in the lovely courtyard was so relaxing. Easy walk from here to any of the attractions to see in town. It was great to have the parkade to put our car in during our stay. Although the breakfast was continental in the room, it was very nice and really a nice change from a heavy sit down breakfast.
