“Spectacular hotel”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

Kilkenny is a lovely little town. We had the pleasure of staying one night at the Kilkenny Rivercourt. The room was great! Clean, updated, spacious and extremely comfortable. The staff was wonderful, and I highly recommend the hotel restaurant. We had both breakfast and dinner there and both meals were superb.

There is a parking lot at the hotel, which makes it very convenient. There is a lovely view of the castle from many points at the hotel, including at the restaurant. It was quite lovely to see the castle at night during dinner.

I highly recommend staying at this hotel. If we had one complaint, t would be that we didnt stay long enough! We will be back!

Stayed here over Valentines and was impressed with the hotel. Booked on Hotels.com and got 2 nights B&B for two people for €155. Everything was clean, from the room to the pool. Staff were very nice. Didn't eat here. Overall i would recommend.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 227 which overlooked the river and castle

My fiancé and I spend a wonderful night at the hotel the past month. Originally booked into the McCourts Townhouse the staff decided to move us into the hotel since it was during a quiet period.
The experience was wonderful, the hotel is very luxurious, clean and extremely neat. Staff very friendly and helpful and always willing to assist.
We had lunch in the Riverview Bar and the food, prepared freshly while you watch, was tasty and high quality. Breakfast was also of very high quality. Four stars deserved! The view from both venues are also amazing looking onto the Kilkenny Castle across the River Nore.
The hotel is also situated very centrally with many historic places to visit close by.

we are a late 50s couple who have grown to appreciate life and few places in the world match our idea of a good night out/ few days away nice meal few drinks meeting new people,plenty to do during the day within easy reach and the chance to stay in a hotel whos staff naturally exel in their efforts to ensure you are comfortable with facilitys to match. if somebody asked me to drop everything and go to say paris, rome ,greek island ,new york,dubai next weekend i would probably say great but i cant for what ever reason but ask me to go to kilkenny and stay in the rivercourt and i would

Room Tip: pay the extra for a river view/balcony but it is not necessary to enjoy this hotel
