Lovely room, food and staff. Nothing too much trouble. Right in centre of town. Easy subsidised parking. Will definitely return. Lovely lounge area with loads of comfy chairs. Room spotless and everything provided.

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. Overall, this hotel was my second favorite—but a very close second! The location of the hotel can't be beat—it's right in the middle of the city center and you can walk to basically...

I stayed here last night with my boyfriend for the comedy festival. The hotel is very clean and rooms are a great size. We ate in the bar and I have to say the food was second to none! I would most definitely recommend the steak sandwich! Absolutely delicious. Staff in the bar were very friendly and chatty. We ordered...

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.

This is a good hotel that good be a great hotel. The bar food menu is limited and the food is very poor. I had the chicken and I can't figure out what they did to it to make it so awful. The breakfast and bar was good.

Perfect spot to enjoy a trip to Kilkenny- across rd from castle, in the heart of all the dining and shops. Rooms are nice but not over the top. Just the norm decor, size etc. Great facilities! Reasonably priced spa for added luxuries if that's what you're after. Recommend!

Great location within easy walking distance from everything in town. The rooms are a good size and clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good. You can park in the multi story carpark across the street and then get it validated so it only costs 5 Euros a night. Nice hotel.
