The River Court is the very best hotel in Kilkenny if you want to explore this fascinating city on foot. We're both disabled, but found it relatively easy to wander round the shops, stop for a cuppa (or a pint) and chat with shopkeepers, serving staff and other tourists. We found plenty of seats to just sit and watch the world go by.
Wednesday night was a bonus, because we noted a night of Irish dancing, music, singing and storytelling at the Castle; this is on every Wednesday night, and is performed by such an enthusiastic mix of talent; both young and our age......
The River Court should rightly be proud of their 4 stars; nothing was too much trouble, and all staff were friendly and accomodating. The pool/spa is open all day and we swam a few lengths, relaxed in the jaccuzzi and/or steam room, had shower, then did it all again, and again! Perfect. The reason for the only 4 score was that the jaccuzzi would benefit from 2 non slip handles for less able-bodied guests to pull against when entering or leaving. Also, a drinker would save the pool attendant having to fill water bottles for us.
