Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 May 2014

The Hibernian was really close to Kilkenny Castle and central to downtown Kilkenny This was a superb location. Easy parking, great rooms, superb friendly service and a fabulous restaurant. Breakfast and our evening meals were pleniful and the service was very friendly.

Upon arriving at the hotel was not giving a great reception, one woman at reception was extremely rude as if we were not wanted there. When we were giving the passes for our room we went to our room we open the door and entered a dark poorly lighted room it was a penthouse suite we presumed maybe it was just the living area but the bedroom was quite dull also. The bed was extremely uncomfortable all I wanted was to relax for the night but could not as it was like sleeping on the floor also the noise from the downstairs nightclub was so loud and went on till the early hours of the morning it was about 5 when I got to sleep. Our breakfast arrived at 9 was disappointed at how very little we got the room had cost us €200 for 1 night and I was very dissatisfied leaving this hotel and I would certainly not be giving them my business again.

We had a great stay at the Kilkenny Hibernian. We were unlucky to be in Kilkenny for Good Friday this year, which in Ireland means all the pubs are closed. However, since we were staying at the hotel, we were able to have a great dinner and a few pints of Guinness at the hotel restaurant. The food was great and the waitstaff was very friendly. As far as the hotel goes, it was great. The rooms were very nice, the lobby was very cool and it had everything you needed. The hotel is also located across the street from Kilkenny Castle, which is well worth the visit. The Kilkenny Hibernian definitely saved our Friday night.

From the minute we arrived, we knew we had chosen the right hotel for us. The receptionist was very professional, helpful and warm towards us when checking in. The room was a delight, very quirky, old fashioned with a fire place and the bed to die for, just perfect for us. The breakfast was lovely with as much coffee as requested. The breakfast staff were a joy and very professional. We were made to feel very comfortable and the atmosphere was just like having breakfast in our own home so thank you ladies. This trip was important to us as my husband at this time is working away and it was our first opportunity since Christmas to properly catch up. We wish we could have stayed longer but we will be back in due course.

Great location in town for all the attractions, pubs and restaurants. Friendly helpful staff, comfortable clean rooms, good breakfast and great value for money. We did eat in the bar on our first evening and enjoyed it. Would definitely stay here again.
