"We thoroughouly enjoyed our stay at the Kilkenny Inn last weekend. The hotel & room was pristine and we both had an excellent night's sleep. Having only booked a twin room it was a lovely surprise to be given a larger room with a double & single bed! Jessica was so friendly & definitely an asset to the team.

I was so pleasantly surprised by the standard of the hotel considering the low price and unassuming exterior right in the centre of town. We will definitely return on our next trip to Kilkenny & would recommend to family and friends"

"We were in Kilkenny for a hen party in early March and stayed at the Kilkenny Inn. The booking process was really easy, Jessica was extremely helpful and accommodating. The rooms very very clean and breakfast really nice and the hotel is only a short walk away from the centre. Would definitely stay here again"

Chef- Stayed January 2020


"Stayed here towards the start of January on a girls weekend. The whole stay was perfect. We had gorgeous rooms and such comfortable beds. Good location of hotel too.

What stuck out for us most though was when we arrived to check in we were greeted by a lovely bubbly receptionist called Brandon. He was so helpful and checked us in straight away. He made us feel very welcome and this left a great impression on us for the rest of our stay.

When we saw him the following day he even stopped to ask us how our stay was so far and if there was anything he could help us with. He gave us a list of places to visit that day.
Later that night we went for drinks in the bar. The atmosphere was lovely and the bar man Liam was great. I couldn’t fault anything about the staff or the stay.

We definitely plan on coming back again soon"

Loved everything about this place. Centrally located (walking distance to everything), cozy room, great staff and very well priced. Breakfast that was included was delicious (got the eggs benny). Highly recommend to anyone traveling to Kilkenny

TSaleswoman - Stayed November 2019


Delighted with our stay in the Kilkenny Inn. It is cozy, clean and the staff are lovely. The rooms are really nice and the breakfast was great. The hotel is a six minute walk from the city centre which is perfect. It's a lovely hotel and is great value.

Michael - Stayed October 2019


We booked a triple room with breakfast for one night. The staff were the most pleasant and friendly I have ever met at any hotel. There was such a good atmosphere in the hotel and it was a pleasure to stay here.

Meg - Stayed September 2019

Noreen - Stayed September 2019


We really enjoyed our stay in your beautiful hotel, if it's possible I would like to commend you on two members of staff, your amazing, friendly & funny Brandon in reception & Liam night porter. Nothing was a problem & if the truth be known they made our stay. We will be back again.

Audrey - Stayed July 2019


This was our third time to stay in this hotel. Can highly recommend, very friendly staff, clean comfortable rooms, good hearty breakfast. Safe spacious car parking at the rear.

Within easy walking distance of all shopping needs.

James B - Stayed July 2019


Stayed here recently and found it to be a very nice comfortable hotel. Had a room facing the back so it was nice and quiet and very clean. Lovely toiletries supplied plus bottled water left in room every day. The staff could not be more friendly and definitely a great asset to the hotel. Breakfast consisted of cereal juice fresh fruit yogurt croissants brown bread tea/coffee and toast with cooked breakfast made to order. Situated on Vicar St. it is within easy walking distance of the city. St. Canice's Cathedral is just around the corner but there are several steps up to it. Kilkenny is a small but vibrant city with lots to do and see especially the beautiful castle. I would suggest taking the tourist train around the city initially to see places of interest. Paul was our driver and added a lot of fun to the trip which takes about 30 minutes. Enjoyed our stay in this friendly hotel.

NewHorizonsIreland - Stayed July 2019


We stayed for one night and booked directly with the hotel's website for the best rate. This rate included a nice breakfast and was competitive for the area. We asked for a quiet room and got a room facing the back vacant lot which was fine. There were a few fire door mazes to get to our room but no real inconvenience. Bed was comfortable and room was clean. Bottled water and bathrobes were a nice touch. This hotel was one of our favorites on our two week Ireland trip. Easy parking in the back. The staff were immediately helpful about sights to see and directions. We walked to Matt the Miller's for dinner and it was the best on our trip with excellent food and live local music. Would recommend to anyone visiting the area.

James - Stayed July 2019


Excellent customer service. Really nice city to visit.. everyone was really friendly and accommodating.. restaurant selections were top notch..the inn and pub were very inviting and breakfast was really good. Thanks for the great time

TucsonDaug - Stayed June 2019


We wanted to write and say thank you again for such a wonderful stay! You started our trip to Ireland out very nicely, and our conversation with Ivon (not sure of spelling) was so wonderful. She really warmed our hearts and made our stay extra special. We will definitely be recommending your hotel to anyone we know traveling to Kilkenny.

Jimmy - Stayed June 2019


We had a lovely time at the hotel and I will remember you for next time I am in Kilkenny!

Eavan - Stayed May 2019


I just wanted to say a big thank you for a lovely stay on Saturday night. We were made feel so welcome by you and the other staff. We will be back for certain.

Ann - Stayed April 2019


St. Candice is across the street providing a dramatic view from the front rooms. The inn itself is not a large, modernistic hotel but instead is nicely intimately sized, well kept and well appointed with modern conveniences. Off street parking behind the hotel was a real plus! Rooms are well designed & the beds comfortable. Modern ensuite bath, with all the amenities, including warm robes! Restaurant offers selection for breakfast, either full or buffet. On the edge of the Medieval Mile so away from a lot of traffic & crowds but easy to walk to. The best part is the staff. Friendly, helpful and very open.

Gary - Stayed April 2019.


We were looking for somewhere for a friends reunion in Kilkenny and we chose the Kilkenny Inn. A few minutes walk from the city centre this hotel absolutely met all of our requirements. Yvonne and the rest of her team could not do enough for us from the moment we arrived. Free parking on site as well. There is a bar and restaurant on site so food and drink are taken care of. The rooms are clean and spacious with water and coffee and tea provided. The cooked breakfast is a real treat after a night out. The proximity to the city makes this hotel a destination of choice for us in future. I will certainly return to the hotel.

CluckerJones - Stayed April 2019


Thank you for our wonderful stay at your hotel. It more than exceeded all our expectations and we cant wait to go back!

Anne - Stayed April 2019


We enjoyed our stay at the inn. The staff was friendly and they provided great information for things to see and do. We enjoyed a music group at the bar that played traditional Irish music.

Amber- Stayed March 2019


Thank you for allowing Abbey to use the room behind Reception on Friday morning.  It was great to be able to do that.The triple room was great with plenty of room for the three of us.  This was our 2nd stay with The Kilkenny Inn and everything was perfect. 

Sharon - Stayed March 2019


Stayed here for one night was great for the price paid! The hotel was a great location walking distance to everything we wanted to do. Parking at the back was good to have. Reception staff was so helpful and friendly. Will defiantly stay here again.

Lucinda - Stayed February 2019


The hotel is in an excellent location -- this is by far the hotel's strongest point. It also has very convenient parking. The staff were very friendly. Everything else was as you would expect from a good three-star hotel.

Martin - Stayed January 2019


Hotel is very nice and has a very quaint feel. Room was decent and I believe the 3 star hotel rating was appropriate. Parking is pretty limited in the back but there are probably 15-20 spots. Restaurant was absolutely fantastic for both dinner and breakfast. Food was great and so was the vibe. Great service as well!

Recones - Stayed January 2019


This hotel was in a great location short walk to the main street with a huge selection of Bars, restaurants and attractions. The double room was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The staff were very helpful and friendly on check in and during our stay. the bar is quiet and clean. Parking is secure and free of charge.

Zoe - Stayed November 2018


We enjoyed our stay in the Kilkenny Inn Hotel. The staff were friendly and efficient , rooms were comfortable clean and warm. Tea and coffee facility in the room was excellent. The bottled water was a welcomed extra.

Margaret - Stayed November 2018


Great hotel very comfortable staff very good especially at breakfast. The hotel is within walking distance of shops,restaurants and bars. Will definitely stay again when in Kilkenny .Great parking also with hotel

John - Stayed October 2018


We really enjoyed our one night at the Inn. The room was very comfortable and quiet, staff were friendly and efficient, the food in the bar/restaurant was good, and it was a short walk from the historic downtown and the almost-adjacent cathedral and tower. A bonus was private parking so close to the city centre. Next time we’ll staprobably longer.

Paul - Stayed September 2018


On behalf of my group and myself, I would just like to say thank you to you and your staff for helping to make it an excellent weekend. Every member of staff we dealt with was very polite and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time.

Anthony - Stayed September 2018

Caroline - Stayed August 2018


Lovely hotel, so close to the center of town without any of the noise! A couple minutes walk to everywhere. Really friendly helpful staff on reception & great room only rate! The linen & pillows in this hotel were incredible, not something I generally notice unless it’s bad but I did not want to get out of bed!

mcw_l - Stayed August 2018

Great hotel. We have been there for a number of years. A few minutes walk from the center of Kilkenny. The ladies at the reception are very friendly and helpful. Also the staff in the restaurant. Good breakfast. Hair dryer to ask at the reception. Free WIFI and parking. We hope to go back next year. it's just like coming home.

Jan - Stayed June 2018


Clean & comfortable rooms, exceptional friendly staff in reception, bar & restaurant. Conveniently located close enough to the many venues bars & restaurants on offer in Kilkenny yet far enough away for a peaceful nights sleep!

Nicola - Stayed May 2018


Wish I could remember the name of the girl who bookerd us in, but one of the most friendly & helpful we encountered in our 4 weeks in Ireland. Hotel was close to the town centre & we had a ball. One of the best towns we visited.

Peter - Stayed April 2018


Great stop during a tour of Ireland. The staff were wonderful and helpful. When I asked questions about areas to see around the hotel the staff member was very knowledgeable about things I might like to see. They also made recommendations of things that were not typical to the tourist attractions. Great stay.

Albert - Stayed March 2018


Beautiful, Comfortable, affordable Hotel. Delicious food, and outstanding customer service, They can't do enough for you here, they are so lovely, a special , mention to lovely Louise on the Reception Desk.

Ruth - Stayed March 2018


Excellent staff. Exceptional food recently won award for same, our crew of 6 had too work in Kilkenny for 5 weeks we could not fault any part of our stay. Rooms are warm and comfortable with some quirky and very stylish Decor. Restaurant - bar areas are always very clean and staff are always very attentive.
All our team could not rate the food highly enough morning & evening. Really good value and over our 5 week contract we ate there 90% of the time!!!
I personally would like too return with my family to fully relax and enjoy my stay even more. Within 5 mins of main walking- visitor attractions and shopping! This hotel is striving above the trend. Well done.

Andrew - Stayed March 2018


I stayed in your hotel as part of a group over the weekend. I wanted to drop a line to say thank you for the lovely hospitality we received. All staff members were so courteous and helpful. The hotel itself was so cosy and the food delicious! The décor was truly lovely and the crockery collection beautiful! I’m truly looking forward to getting an excuse to head to Kilkenny and stay in your hotel again.
