Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Extremely poor service in The Brassiere. Asked for food to be gluten free! Did not arrive! Food cold - and poor quality! Drinks service very slow! Will not be returning! Order mixed up! Drinks did not arrive had to ask for them again! Staff not attentive enough!

Hotel's Favourite
My Stay at The Kilkenny Hibernian Hotel was a Wonderful Experience. From The Front Desk Staff to The Restaurant Team, Nothing was to great for the Staff who made my Stay In Kilkenny, a wonderful memorable Experience. The Kilkenny Hibernian is Centrally located in the Centre of town with the Castle just a stones throw away, with great Restaurants and pubs close by. I highly recommend the Field and lanicans for great live music along with The Kyteler inn close by. For those looking for a great Stay in Kilkenny look no further than The Kilkenny Hibernian Hotel you will no be disappointed. I look forward to a future Visit In Kilkenny.

The outstanding feature of the Hibernian is the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. The next highlight is the location. It is central to a host of bars and restaurants but the ambience and quality of its own bar and restaurant might just tempt you to stay in-house. We have enjoyed the Hibernian experience for many years and will definitely be returning. To emphasise once again the high standards of the staff makes for a very pleasant experience.

We didn’t stay here as we were next door in the Ormonde but it’s a lovely bar and food is fab. Music on Sunday evening and seems very popular with locals which is always a good sign. Drink reasonably priced too

Wonderful atmosphere attentive staff, great food and super location. Rooms are comfortable and well decorated, there’s a cosy feel without feeling small or cramped. Certainly come back again. Decor in the bar is reminiscent of a older period but without feeling dated or tired

The double room was spacious, clean and comfy. The food selection and quality in the bar/ restaurant was great as well as friendly and helpful staff. Great that they could keep my suitcase even after I had checked out as my train was only due later on the day. I was free then to explore and do more sightseeing.

Hotel staff were very professional, friendly and courteous. Breakfast was excellent and nobody rushed us out of the dining room after dining hours were over. Our room was very nicely decorated and sparking clean. Location was perfect, literally across the road from Kilkenny Castle and right beside shops, pubs, restaurants etc. We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone. Thank you!
