This was our third time staying at Hotel Kilkenny - we keep going back because it has everything you could want - great bar, good restaurant - excellent staff, lovely gym and pool (including kids pool) and best kids club I have come across ever!!

I can highly recommend this to any family or indeed any type of person looking for a relaxing irish getaway!

Coming in the drive I was really excited as the hotel looked fabulous, as did the lobby when we went inside. Receptionist was lovely, as were all the staff I have to say.
The standard room was Basic with a capital B. Definitely not 4 star! There was limescale on the bath tap, and the room smelled of smoke. We moved room the next night to a deluxe room, much nicer!
The food was disappointing. The breakfast buffet was nice, the full Irish tasted reheated and reheated again. We had dinner on one night as part of our package. I honestly do not tell a lie when I say we genuinely could not eat eat the food. Flattened, dry chicken breast on a bed of frozen pea-sweetcorn mixture is hardly mouthwatering, but we would have settled for edible! Duck not any better.
On the whole, pricy and disappointing with bad food but lovely staff.

We booked into the hotel for the 3 nights over Christmas and would say that it was just OK. The hotel is about a 10-15 minute walk to town. The rooms were minimal in design, the bed was very comfortable but the rooms did not have temperature control so they tended to get very stuffy at night and the bathrooms were in need of re-furbishment. The food was food was good bit pricey. I would say that the hotel was more like a 3* than the rated 4+.

This is our 3rd stay in the Hotel Kilkenny. It is a great place for people with young children, the girls in the kids club are wonderful and I cannot thank them enough. My kids are still talking about it!! This would also be a great place for couples or a weekend away with the girls. The leisure centre caters for all types and the staff throughout the hotel cannot do enough to help you. We had a winter package and you would have a hard time to beat the price anywhere else. The food was also lovely. All round it was a great break and I would go back in a heart beat.

We stayed for work and have been extremely pleased by this hotel. Nice 'boutique-y' decor, relaxed, flexible staff but also professional. The food was yummy and generous. Our Irish hosts said the guiness was up to 'standard'. The spa, gym and pool were excellent.
Conference facilities were also good. I would recommend to individuals staying for leisure or business groups.
