“Friendly personnel, dark rooms, broken bathroom fittings”
Reviewed 24 August 2009

The exterior of the hotel is 70's style so lots of concrete. Plastic tables and chairs on the street terrace. The staff were really friendly, the reception areas painted in dark browns. The room, painted in dark colours, was rather small but adequate. The bathroom was fitted with a disabled shower; however, there was no mop to wipe away the shower water that went everywhere. The toilet was not properly fastened to the wall and had a sideways lean that was rather worrisome. Although we had stipulated a quiet room when we had made the booking the noise of partying on the streets and directly below our room meant that sleep was very disturbed.
Breakfast was extra, €9 and very basic. Black tea and instant coffee were the only beverages on offer.

The Kilkenny Inn is an ordinairy hotel. The lady at the reception was very friendly and helpfull and you can park your car for free in their parking. Breakfast was good as was everythnig else in the hotel. Nothing special, just good. The city is only a 5 minute walk away.

nothing to say about the amenities. but the room, although spacious and comfortable, was very anonymous, in contrast with kilkenny atmosphere. the breakfast was a little poor, and the waitress didn't provide to replace the jouices, the scones and the bread once they ended. the hotel was dark, and the rooms on the road were a bit noisy.

Reasonable prices, close to town, and free off-street parking. The hotel also has a lift. Our bathroom was recently remodeled and very nice. The room was a good size as well. This is an above average hotel in Kilkenny and a 10 minute walk from the center of town. There can be a lot of noise when groups are staying at the hotel (stags, hens, wakes, etc..). You'll find this problem just about anywhere in Ireland. Quietest rooms are on the 2nd floor or higher on the south side of the hotel facing the huge Smithwick's brewery.

Kilkenny has a party city reputation. But this hotel has a quieter kind of fun. You'll be looked after like family and if you spend time at their bar- you will likely make great friends. Locals go there to relax and enjoy a night out and the bartending staff were a ton of fun!. Accomodations were reasonable and clean and convenient to everything. Even the front desk staff took time to get to know us and when we needed help with getting to our next destination- went well out of their way to assist. A bit of true Ireland in a tourist destination town. Highly recommend it!

Stayed in this hotel recently with my friends for a hen party. When booking, staff were very helpful and accomodated all our needs. During our stay staff were very friendly and catered our every need. The hotel its self is nicely decorated for a 3 star and in a great location on the fringes of the city, easy walking into the main bars etc. Could not fault this hotel, we had a great weekend here.

From the moment of arrival, we were made feel right at home. All the staff were extremely friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We were very well looked after. We were a hen party, and the champagne and complimentry cocktails kick started our night and made the hen feel very special.. This hotel has a very comfortable , relaxed atmosphere to it and i would highly recommend it. It also is only walking distance to town..
