This hotel is very well located as it is within walking distance from everything but not too central that you can hear noise from the local bars and nightclubs. The rooms were exceptionally clean and all staff couldn't have been nicer. From the warm welcome at reception to the friendly barman, the stay was very much enjoyed. We will definitely be back soon.

Worst hotel ever, parties in the rooms went on all nite and staff did nothing about it. OK if your going on stag nite but not suitable for families, tourists, couples or anyone that want to sleep at some stage of the nite. Even the staff told us when we were leaving that people always complain about the parties and the visitors that are allowed into the hotel rooms. Management have no control over this place. If you want to get any sleep this is not the hotel to go to.

Stayed three nights @ e69 twin mid-week special. Very good choice. Clean room and bath. Daily service. Quiet (once you refuse the street-windowed room at check in). Nice wood trim in room/hallways. Short stroll to downtown shopping. Free car park in rear of hotel (turn into/out of car park a bit of effort due to traffic and field of vision). Breakfast has waitstaff and food pleasantly presented. (I think the coffee was instant, tho). Did not notice any heat controls in the room (didn't need it during our stay). Only downside was the small (maybe 17"?) TV mounted on wall with only 4 channels (sometimes 7). Pleasant pub attached that served food all day (we did not eat or drink here, tho); did not play music and was only frequented by one or two people while we stayed there (thus is was not noisy).

This was our best hotel stay in Ireland. For the price, it was fantastic.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, confirm an off-road room.

We stayed on a Friday night, very much a last minute decision, and found the Inn a very decent hotel.

Good car park around back, very quick friendly check-in from the nice lady receptionist as was the check-out. The room itself was clean and all fixtures worked well( who likes a slow shower?)

We had a few drinks in the evening in the lounge and although very quiet, the Guinness was good and the bar tender would be a credit to any establishment.

Didnt have dinner in the hotel, but did have breakfast which was very good. All in all a good hotel.

A friend and I stayed here 6 weeks ago and we really enjoyed it. As a result of the warm welcome we received from the staff and owners we decided to return en-mass. At almost a dozen strong arriving into reception, yet again we got a great welcome. After a long journey (Some of our group travelled from Belfast) our check in was swift and hassle free. The rooms were spotless with plenty of clean fresh towels to hand and I had an iron and ironing board dropped up from reception less than 2 minutes after calling for it. The location of the Kilkenny Inn Hotel is ideal, only a couple of minutes walk from the main street and less than 5 minutes from the centre of all nightlife. After a long night on the town the next morning was kicked off with a really good full Irish breakfast and a big pot of coffee. Check out was as easy as checking in and within an hour of leaving some of our group started to plan their return. Thanks for making our hectic weekend so easy and we'll be back in the near future.

Apart from the inexperienced staff, for the price of 45 euro including breakfast. Probly the best all round hotel in Kilkenny.
