“A great Easter in Kilkenny River Court Hotel.”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Thank you for another great break. This was our third trip to this Hotel,and again we were so well looked after. Staff are very welcoming and helpful. The riverside terrace is a lovely setting for a long lunch,music on Saturday was very good. Looking forward to our next visit. Just one suggestion the curtains in the bedroom do not keep out the light, new ones with blackout inserts would be good.

Great spot, nice rooms. Friendly staff. We requested a castle view but didn't get one. Breakfast was good, but want given my coffee until I had finished eating & was ready to leave. Showers were nice & bed was comfortable. Walking view within everything

Walking distance to all the sights in kilkenny. Nice comfortable rooms, clean property, helpful staff. Would stay here again.very nice place. We walked everywhere, but it appeared to have plentiful parking for those who drove. Finding food in the off season on a monday can be tough but overall a pleasant stay.

Soooo where to start, being moved three times to different tables, been told that they didn't do table service and then watch them service someone else!! Waiting fifteen mins before we could order, being asked to move again!! It's the first time I had a bad experience in this hotel but what a bad experience!! So annoyed! Overall it was a not nice experience, had brought the inlaws out for lunch and we won't be going back!!

We arrived in Kilkenny and decided to have lunch beside the river. The Kilkenny River Court has a good reputation. The outside seating area was fairly empty and when we arrived a couple were complaining about the quality of the food. We waited a few minutes and ordered an open Salmon sandwich and egg mayonnaise sandwich. Drinks were provided immediately then the wait began. We were waiting about 2 minutes when the Manager came out with two roast dinners having just ordered. He seemed rather dazed that this wasn't our order perhaps we should have taken the food as we waited 45 minutes for two sandwiches. Only when I went into the hotel to see where our order was did the Manager respond with "we had a bit of a rush and had 12 orders" sorry girl the delay. The first rule of good service is let your customer know if there is a delay. When the sandwiches arrived they were very good. The lunch menu for the hotel was poor and lacked choice and at €8.50 for an open smoked sandwich we realised that we were the only Irish customers for lunch. Would I go back, yes for the setting but the service was chaotic and the menu needs to improve there are a huge range of eateries offering good food at far more competitive prices.

I had heard so many good things about this hotel so maybe I was expecting too much. I do not have anything bad to say about it but it just did not do it for me or my wife compared to other hotels which we have stayed in kilkenny. Food and bar was fine but sleep quality was very poor due to a carpark barrier that beeped continously all night. Make sure you do not have a room over the courtyard if you are a light sleeper like me if you want to avoid this. We also had to point out the lack of eggs and hash browns for breakfast and therefore had to wait for them.

Room Tip: Keep away from rooms overlooking the front carpark

We spent only one night in Kilkenny river court hotel on our way back to Dublin but it was a perfect choice. First, we didn't book it in advance and decision to stay there was taken just on the spot. The receptionist was very helpful and checked us in quickly and with no trouble.
The rooms are big and very cosy and clean, with nice bathroom. One of the advantages is the view on Kilkenny castle - it was marvelous.
But the brightest impression is the Full Irish black fast served there - with really fresh and tasty food, huge selection of dishes and a perfect tranquil view on the castle.

I would definitely stay again in this hotel if I am in Kilkenny again.
