I stayed at the Springhill recently, and I have to say that it was one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. The location is very convenient, the staff were some of the most pleasant and courteous I have ever met - they could not do enough to help us with anything. The bedroom I stayed in was perfect - I could not complain about anything in the Springhill. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is going to visit Kilkenny! As I said already - one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in.
