We were never supposed to make a stop in Kilkenny but as a last minute thing we decided to cut our three nights in Killarney into two and stay here for a night instead. This was such a great choice, this city is stunning and easily missed if not paying close attention. I think Kilkenny was one of our favourite...

Very quiet at night and very comfortable. Helpful staff and a stone's throw from the castle, which is worth a visit. Within very easy reach (200m) of lively bars with live Irish music - wonderful. Good breakfast overlooking the river and castle.

Haas plenty of great features, a terrace out by the river but we arrived too late to enjoy it. Rooms overlooking the Castle and River, but we weren't allocated one. We were in a refurbished ground floor room which was fine, tidy, clean and most important a spotless bathroom. Ordered food in the bar, couldn't be faulted. Steak was perfect...

The River Court hotel is in an excellent location, right in the middle of Kilkenny. A little pricier then a B&B, but with the great location, FREE on-site parking, and breakfast included it was actually a good deal. The room was comfortable, the staff friendly and very helpful. The wifi was spotty. It would be nice if the hotel had...

We had Afternoon tea on Wednesday May 3rd. Everything was lovely and tasty. It was nice to have a different selection of treats to when we last visited the hotel for afternoon tea in December ( those were lovely too ) It's always nice to try different things. We had some lovely sandwiches egg mayo, a little brioche slider and...

Stayed just the one night midweek . Great location and nice outside seating . Comfy large room but it overlooked the hotel entrance so noise was a problem especially early morning when deliveries were being made very early and the noise of wheels rolling across the cobbles did not bode well for a badly needed lie in . Breakfast was...

A two night stay in lovely surroundings by the river. That's all it takes to relax and unwind. So close to the town with all the happenings it a perfect place for a break. No need to move the car to visit the many town attractions. The room was large and very comfortable. The staff were helpful and very courteous....

This hotel stay was OK for us, not sure that we will be back. The room was clean, although a bit small. The bathroom could use a bit of updating (seems a bit worn). We were in a deluxe castle view room - we received an email a few days out that there would be a wedding and asked if...

This beautiful hotel full of old-days-charm is located right at the heart of Kilkenny. Just step outside the hotel courtyard and you're next to some nice restaurants, pubs and the Kilkenny castle. The big riverside terrace gets pretty crowded when the weather is sunny, but it's a nice spot to enjoy the sun and the views up to the castle....
