We stayed in this hotel for a two night stay including dinner. From the moment we arrived the staff were so welcoming and friendly. They really could not do enough for us.
The rooms were spotless and the beds were super comfortable.
The lesiure facilities were execellent, with a large pool area, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi, as well as a full gym with all the latest excerise equiptment.
Breakfeast in the restaurant was extremely well presented with a wide selection of fruits, cereals, juices, breads etc. it was great to have your food cooked to order as it arrives hot, as opposed to other hotels I have stayed where the food is left in hot trays, that are never actually hot!!
I can highly recommend the restaurant, the food was wonderful and the menu offered a varied selection to suit all tastes.
The location of the hotel is very good, it is about a ten minute stroll along college road to the centre of town, where there are so many shops and bars to choose from. Brilliant because you dont have to experience all the noise and traffic a city centre hotel would bring!!!
I will most definitely be returning to this hotel again on my next visit to kilkenny!!
A very special thank you to Niamh & Alan in reception for all their help!!

My wife and I stayed here on a Saturday night. Our rooms was nice and airy. The staff were pleasant. It's about a 10 minute stroll from the city centre. Our room was located next to the ring road so the noise coming from the traffic was an issue. Also, due the design of the hotel, the 3rd floor is a long uninterrupted line of doors. The doors make a lot of noise when the bang shut. So in all found it a bit hard to sleep. Check in at 4pm - c'mon hire some staff. Good price though.

Hotel Kilkenny was a wonderful place to stay with our two children, age 4 and 7. They were in the kids club in the morning time, having a great time (while we were sightseeing and shopping) and again in the evening, letting us have a lovely meal in the restaurant (the food was delicious). Staff were all super-friendly. Very happy with our stay.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Hotel Kilkenny. Each member of staff was helpful, warm and courteous. The building itself is modern, well kept and very clean. The beds are like baskets of heaven..so luxurious and comfortable! The buffet breakfast was very tasty. The Hotel is off the main road, so very easy to get to, and yet it was very quiet and peaceful. We were really close to Kilkenny Castle and Kilkenny Design Centre, as well as some great shops and walks. The leisure centre is amazing. We had a wonderful stay!

Stayed here with the girls at the weekend, had a great time, from the time we arrived to the time we left we were very impressed. The staff were friendly , the rooms clean and warm, the food was excellent which is unusual for a hotel, there was music in the bar on both nights so we didnt have to go down town. All in all we had a great stay and I would definitely recommend the Hotel Kilkenny .
