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...

Everything positive I read about this place was totally true. It is in an absolutely perfect spot, so convenient, and the free parking is just 5 mins around the corner. Once in the alleyway via the gated entry, you could be anywhere, but you are right outside the rooms in a sunlit tranquil space. Ours where the first two rooms...

I enjoyed my stay at the the Butler Court. The continental breakfast provided many choices. It was nice to eat while getting ready in the morning instead of having to be in a breakfast room by a certain time. Guests must park in a public lot; however, the proprietor will validate the ticket. It is close (walking distance) to all...

This B&B was pretty close to all the fun stuff in Kilkenny. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by the friendly and lovable house dog Bob, and Ivonne gave such a warm welcome. She gave excellent tips on what to do in Kilkenny and helped us plan our day. The room was clean, comfortable with space for luggage,...
