On our recent stay in Kilkenny, I chose this hotel as I had read some other reviews that suggested it was a good choice if you had a hire car as it was easy to find parking - which turned out to be correct. The hotel is located a short drive outside of the main township of

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for your fantastic review. I am thrilled to read your positive feedback about your stay. Unfortunately when anyone books through booking.com, the reservations need to be changed through them, not the hotel. We do encourage guests to book directly with the hotel for this reason. Many thanks for choosing Hotel Kilkenny and we hope to welcome you back in the not too distant future. Warmest Regards, David Byrne General Manager.

Very surprised with this hotel. We booked it under the pretence that you get what you pay for. We spent €189 for 20 hours. Check in time was 1600hrs and check out was 1200hrs. Staff were rude and not up to standard that you would expect in a 4 star hotel. Everything is

Dear Reviewer These are standard check in and check out times for the vast majority of hotels. Our rates are in keeping with the Kilkenny Hotel Market. There are many areas of the hotel recently refurbished an we are constantly improving our facilities. I am surprised by your comments about our staff as we do receive fantastic feed back about the team. I would always encourage guests to speak with our management team during their stay to allow us the opportunity to rectify any issues. Warmest Regards, David Byrne General Manager.

Thanks for your question. The most quiet time is a around 10.30am but this differs daily. Kids can stay in the pool until 6.30pm Monday - Thursday and 7.30pm Friday - Sunday. You must be over 16 to use the pool outside of children hours.
