The staff are very friendly and professional. Our room was a good size and the bed was very comfortable. The shower was very good and Breakfast was really excellent. I wish I had room to try the pancakes as they looked really good.

The location of this hotel was perfect. It was a bit of meandering through town to find it, but it is quite central. The hotel also has a connected parking garage across the street for 5 EUR a night. The hotel is just up the hill from the Castle and the main part of Kilkenny town, making it's location quite...

I stayed in the Ormonde last week for the Cats Laughs festival. From the comfy beds down to the great food, the staff were amazing - super friendly!

I only stayed at Kilkenny Ormonde for one night and I probably won't be back. The place was difficult to find, the bed and pillows were hard and uncomfortable and the room was really stuffy. They must have a problem with air circulation because they put a fan in the room which helped a little. The breakfast was just ok,...

My mom and I recently spent 10 days traveling across Ireland, and we stayed at the Kilkenny Ormonde for our second and third nights in the country.

Yet another wannabe 4star......Rooms are standard 3star.Check in staff at reception are indifferent. what took the biscuit with me was the supplementary €2.50 for an espresso or for pancakes or even a sliver of smoked salmon. For a proper breakfast they should send their GM to the Radisson Galway or to Knockranny in Wesport.
