I stayed here one Sat nigh in March and it was lovely. You can't get any more central location than this hotel. Room was very nice with lovely white bed linen. We had dinner that night in the hotel restaurant, set menu (3 course) for €25 euro with a glass of house wine, except with got a 4 course for €25. The waiting staff there are fantastic, the food was beautiful. Excellent choice on the menu. Parking is provided free of charge in the multi storey car park straight across the road free compliments of the hotel from 6pm-12 midday the next day

We stayed in this hotel for one night - excellent hotel - rooms are small but all was perfect - meals were one hundred percent - it is in town centre and near to all one wants to see - the only small complaint may be the disco finishing at two - but it is not a big issue

Lovely hotel very freindly staff, Food was lovely too. The beds in our room where quite hard and one was slightly raised than the other.Only downside is that the nightclub underneeth can be a bit noisey when people are leaving it at 3 in the morning.

Stayed in the Hibernian for one night. Hotel is very central and clean, but very basic. Would not class it as a 4 star hotel (sorry) , I have stayed in 4 star hotels before and it would not match the same quality or extras. There was no tea/coffee facilites in room and shower was very poor, with very little toiletries (no conditioner or shower cap). However check in and reception was very quick, courteous and helpful, as were all staff. Food was very nice in bar. Pay parking is just beside the hotel, which they cover from 6pm until 12 noon the next day. Klkenny Castle is 1 min walk from hotel and The Left Bank Bar is across the road, very nice Bar.

Stayed here for 1 night with 2 course dinner and breakfast included.
The Hotel is in the best location in Kilkenny city, right in the heart of the city centre. Its a few hundred metres from Kilkenny castle and right on the high street.
The hotel staff are pleasant and the food is excellent
The hotel has free Wifi throughout
The main bar has a great atmosphere and we had no problem getting a few drinks late into the night as residents
The Left bank bar directly accross the road is good too.
The room was nice but the decor was a little dated for my liking.
The hotel uses the public multistory carpark next door but only covers the parking charges from 6pm until 12pm the next day, we arrived at 2.30pm and had to pay the balance of €6 (4 hours)
This is my only gripe with this otherwise excellent hotel.

The staff is very pleasant, the hotel is nicely decorated and any meals we had there were very good. All very important points, however I was disappointed with our room given the fact I said there would be 3 people. All the did was throw a "cot" in a two-person room which made it impossible to get around. I know that rooms are typically smaller outside of the US, but felt they were maximizing their situation. We brought up the issue to the front desk and they didn't have any other rooms available. The room was extremely noisy, as we could hear everything from every angle.
