My son Cody and I traveled through Kilkenny in early Sept. John had wonderful ideas for things to see. Yvonne was an absolute doll, and Bob the dog is my new buddy. They made you feel like instant old friends. Located in the heart of Kilkenny, walking distance to the Castle, shopping, churches, parking, food it was the perfect place...

Great location and value. Lovely courtyard which provides quiet, intimate surroundings for stay. Bob, the dog, greets you and owners, Yvonne & John, are exceptional hosts.

Anyone who has read any of my reviews knows that I don’t hand out 5s very often, but Yvonne, John and Bob Dalton run an excellent B&B, with a different twist on the breakfast part. Our room was a nice size and was equipped with a fridge. Finally we could keep the wine cold without having to put ice in...

We were thrilled by Butler Court during a two day stay in Kilkenny in early September, 2011. Our 2nd level ("first floor") room was modern, spacious, extremely comfortable and the bathroom was fit for the Ritz. Our experience was made even more special through the kindness and generosity of Yvonne and John, owners responsible for the complete refurbishment of the...

We stayed here with our two children and my parents. We loved the B&B. The rooms were fabulous. The breakfast provided was wonderful. We loved the location and our host were our favorites on our trip to Ireland. They had a dog that my kids adored. We were only able to stay here one night because of our trip itinerary,...

Purpose-built for its identity as a B&B, John and Yvonne Dalton's superb inn provides a convenient and cozy base from which to explore Kilkenny and the surrounding countryside. Departing from the B&B practice of a communal breakfast room, a continental breakfast (pastries, fruit, cereal, coffee, tea--and in refrigerator juice and milk) is provided in each room: the menu is also...

Butler Court was our first B&B experience in Ireland and we absolutely loved it. Our room was spotless, the bathroom--perfect, the refrig--extremely well stocked, Yvonne and John--ever helpful and available, Bob--a perfect greeter! We scheduled two nights but requested a third after settling in. Yvonne was wonderful with recommendations, maps, ideas. I had been hesitant about B&B's but truly hated...

Made our reservations via the Butler Court website and subsequent e-mails with proprietor, Yvonne. Our first night in Ireland led us to Butler Court dead-tired, but excited after arriving in Dublin and stops in the Gardens of Powerscourt and Glendalough on our way to Kilkenny. Yvonne was a font of understanding ("You'll sleep in past 9am your first morning."), knowledge...

Tastefully designed with the latest of everything. Continental breakfast (with everything from yogurt to scones to cereals and milk, to the freshest of fruit) being set up in room was nice change from the BIG (and sometimes too much) breakfasts in other places. Beds were very comfortable with smooth, high thread count linens. Yvonne was VERY helpful with directions and...
