I stayed in the Ormande last weekend and am stunned by the earlier reviews. We had stayed in 3 hotels over the course of a week, ending in Kilkenny and this hotel was the best out of the 3. We had a quiet room away from noise. I did request this as I am pregnant and have a 5 yr old so go to bed early. I am very fussy but had no issues at all with the hotel. I found the staff to be extremely nice and helpfull. The restaurant was run very efficently and the food was great. We had about a 5 min wait for breakfast one morning but that was it. We were on a Supervalu breakaway deal and found it be great value. The only quibble was the heat in the room. I was on the 3rd floor and no breeze came in. I requested a fan the next day and one was delivered to my room. Problem solved. Also one thing to note. If you want to book spa treatments in KO, do so a couple of weeks in advance. They were totally booked up for the weekend we were there. With regard to Internet, we were given a cable to pulg in laptop and the speed was good. I will definitely visit this hotel again!
