Great hotel with good location, comfy rooms and most of all, an excellent breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our break and found the staff to be so helpful and courteous. Bright airy room with nice quality bed linen and great fluffy towels. Food also very good in the restaurant

Stayed January 2014

Stayed in the Kilkenny River Court Hotel last weekend with my family. We were booked in for one night & unexpectedly two of our party had to leave due to a family emergency. The staff at the hotel couldn't have been more understanding & helpful - we weren't charged for their room even though we had already checked in earlier that day!

We were over-whelmed by the hospitality that we received & would highly recommend this hotel to everyone. The food was also fantastic!!

Many thanks to Martin Gallagher (Deputy General Manager) & all the staff of Kilkenny River Court - looking forward to our next trip already...

Stayed in this fabulous hotel while on a road trip around Ireland and my only complaint was that we only stayed the one night!!!
This has to be one of the best hotels I have stayed in. You couldn't get a better location, literally in the heart if Kilkenny. Across the road was Matt the Millers pub - a great place for a pint and to meet the locals. Kilkenny castle is across the river - a 5 min walk. Our room looked out over the river and had a magnificent view of the castle. The hotels bar has a prime location and it was fantastic sitting outside with the river and castle as your backdrop!!!
The rooms were clean and well equipped and the hotel put on a spectacular breakfast.
If your in Ireland make the effort, not only to visit Kilkenny which is a beautiful city, but to stay atleast one night.

Stayed recently for one night with family. Hotel is very nice, clean, staff were also friendly and helpful.

The rooms were of a very good size again clean up to date, although the bathroom could do with a spot of light redecoration it looked a bit tired. We didn't have a meal at the hotel but breakfast was very good couldn't complain.

It's location is ideal with all of Kilkenny on your doorstep, could not really fault this hotel would definitely return and would also recommend it as a good place to stay in Kilkenny.

Great views, great location close to castle and in the middle of town. Everything else was very good, but the big plus here was the location. Right in the middle of a cute town, with lots of places to eat right along the river.

Room Tip: Ask for view of castle

No service to speak of. Had to wait too long before trying to attract attention and ask for menu. None appeared but other guests were served in meantime. Left without seeing a menu. 4 star - fallen star.
