Loved Kilkenny and loved this hotel. It's great location made it easy to walk around and see all the local sights. Only one block away from the wonderful Kilkenny Castle. The room was comfortable and clean. Dinner was good as was breakfast, though more selection at the buffet would be nice. My only complaint here is the ironing board in the room, it kept collapsing while I was ironing. I checked the underside to find out what was wrong with it and it is simply its design. Nothing you can do to fix it, they just need new ones that are engineered better.

Myself and 8 Welsh friends stayed in this wonderful, welcoming City Centre hotel for the Kilkenny Roots Festival on May Bank Holiday weekend, From the moment we arrived we knew we were in for a treat. The check in staff could not have been more accommodating. The feeling of genuine Irish hospitality in abundance. The rooms were magnificent and so quiet we could have been in the middle of Connemara. Breakfast superb. Pool and Spa facilities were huge and immaculate. The location is absolutely perfect for exploring the city. Great pubs and restaurants. May I give a special mention to Henderson's Harp Bar on the High St. An old style charming pubbed, manned by great barmen Richie and Murt. Everywhere worth going to is a 5 minute walk from the Ormonde. But the real jewel in this Kilkenny crown is the welcome extended by the fabulous staff. Colin and his staff are running a steady ship here. Do yourselves a favour fellow travellers and enjoy the delights of the KK Ormonde. I am a confirmed Kilkenny Convert now and will be back with a great degree of regularity.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor towards the back. My room was 317. A huge room with a queen size and a good size...

stayed here on one of the spa breaks with my sisters .
Hotel was fully booked but the staff still couldn't do enough for you .
you would know it was because they wanted to help and not because they had to !
We had dinner in the restaurant and couldn't not fault the food or service .
I had one of the best Facial.s ever in the spa. If you can treat yourself do;-)
Hotel is right in the center of Kilkenny with everything on your door step .
The bar was quite but with a big range of pubs and clubs so close this is not a problem.
All in all a great place to stay.

Just back from an overnight in Ormonde Hotel Kilkenny. We were attending a wedding in a different hotel so our time in Ormonde was rather short. Great location in city centre - very close to castle. Room was pleasant but would have liked some more light in it. Bathroom was functional, but would benefit from little bit of freshening up. The bed was really comfy, and the staff was very helpful. I had requested late check-out and it was confirmed promptly and efficiently. I'm not a great fan of buffet breakfast, but the lady running the show at breakfast was amazing. Leisure centre lovely. All in all - really nice hotel, and would intend to return for a longer stay next time

Room Tip: As hotel is located in a cul de sac, I'd say they are all fine. We were facing onto front stree...

Nice Clean Hotel. Parking across the street in the multi story carpark was ideal. Cost €5 for the day/night.The check in was quick, the girl at the desk was very helpful. The room was very spacious. Breakfast was very good, help yourself to sausages, rashers, black/white puddings, scrambled egg. Boiled/poached eggs available on request. Tea/coffee. Hotel was right in the centre of the night life.

Stayed in this hotel on Friday night. Everything was perfect. Central location with convenient parking, quiet and spacious room and bathroom. Feather duvet which in my opinion always raises a hotel a notch. Breakfast and the service was pleasant and excellent. Brought fresh coffee without being asked. We found all staff to be very approachable and helpful. You can't beat this hotel if you want to visit Kilkenny City.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room. You may not have a good view but you will be away from any street noise.

This is a nice hotel and handy location for business travellers. Only thing is that the food in the bar is of bad quality but the restaurant is better. The staff are quite friendly too. Nice hotel overall and very central.
