This is a busy hotel, catering for both foreign and domestic guests. As a family of four with two young children we found it an excellent location for external and internal entertainment. First of all the kids club was in full swing offering evening as well as daily activity. The pool and leisure club provided endless hours of swimming and fun. Secondly, the hotel is centrally located close to all the city attractions, including Kilkenny castle, the design centre, the sight seeing trains etc.
Breakfast is special at The Ormande, one of the best I have encountered in a long time. Little touches like providing jars of honey, various jams, fresh and dried berries, nuts, seeds, fruit and yogurt as well as local cheeses, ham and homemade breads provided an alternative to the cooked breakfast.
I would recommend this hotel too for it's rooms which are large, comfortable and noise free.
The staff are extremely helpful and courteous, that goes for front desk, waiting staff and leisure attendants.
A very pleasant place to stay while exploring this exciting medieval city. Highly recommended.
