“Great value for the money”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

Hard to find gem in Kilkenny as the hotel comes with a decent size indoor swimming pool. Hotel is situated right next to the castle with a nice view to the castle. Breakfast buffet was adequate and wifi signal was strong in the room. Overall, it was great value for the money. The only problem we had was that the windows for the rooms by the river without screens couldn't be opened..it was a real problem in a hot summer day as the fan wasn't big enough to cool the room. Also, it was fairly noisy at night as people were dinning by the river and cars were moving in and out of the lot.

Recently stayed at this lovely hotel for one night and it surpassed all expectations. Reasonably priced, clean, friendly and efficent staff are among some of the compliments I could pay it. Undoubtedly though the best thing about this hotel was the location which is AMAZING. Literally bang smack in the centre of town , without feeling as it is. No need for taxis and the following morning we enjoyed breakfast overlooking the river and castle. Parking is a little limited and there is a €5 charge for it but it didn't matter in the slightest !!

We stayed one night and enjoyed it very much, it has an excellent location in front of the castle and the river, rooms are very big for european standards, if you are travelling with family is a perfect option, beds are clean and comfy, no noise during night time, the parking place is small but not a problem at all. The terrace by the river is nice and the only one in town but service ends at 8 p.m. too bad!!! However just across the street is Matt the Millers an excellent pub with live music.

We stayed one night at the lovely Kilkenny River Court Hotel and enjoyed it very much. The picturesque location combined with the lovely staff and delightful rooms made it a perfect place from which to enjoy beautiful Kilkenny. We were there during an unusual hot spell but the fan we found in the closet made it just fine. The restaurant manager arranged a gorgeous dinner for our party to make my sister's birthday extra special. And the breakfast was perfect. Great place to stay!

The River Court is right in the heart of Kilkenny. It allowed us to come back several times throughout the day to drop off bags or freshen up. Many rooms face the castle and the river. It is beautiful day and night. Rooms were large by European standards and very comfortable. There is a terrific breakfast in the dining room that was included with the room. It was buffet style and had many choices. It is served until 10:30 in the summer so it allows you to skip lunch if you are so inclined. There is a bar with an amazing patio that overlooks the river and castle. The staff was helpful and a full range of services are available. We were able to send our laundry out, which we never do but did not want to waste part of our time in Ireland doing laundry. The parking is tight but the fact there is parking in a city center and the cost to park was low made it well worth it. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Ask to face the river in the castle. Some rooms on the side of the hotel also have a nice view.
