I had a wonderful 3 days at this hotel. When I arrived I left my handbag on floor and a lovely girl at reception had found it and kept it for me. All the staff were wonderful and breakfast was superb My room overlooked the castle which was a great treat. Well done to all

I honestly can't say enough good things about our very brief stay in the River Court Hotel. The staff went above & beyond to make our stay perfect. Beautiful views of the Castle from our room. Young lad serving breakfast was so helpful and polite. Great location in the centre of everything. Definitely going to stay here again.

The River Court hotel looks like it was decorated in the 1950's, but somehow doesn't feel outdated. The rooms could do with a little more TLC however. The box TV had a very bad picture and the giant remote which featured only some working buttons, was a sign that both had done their time. The bathroom was nicely done and...

We stayed at the Kilkenny River Court Hotel for one night in late February. We were lucky enough to have a riverside room with a stunning view of Kilkenny Castle from our window. The room itself was spacious and clean, and the bed was comfortable. Some repairs were needed though - the bathroom door could not be properly locked and...

Took my wife to Kilkenny for her birthday and stayed here. Great location and hotel. Clean and accessible, get there early for parking. The breakfast is excellent, don't get too drunk in the Kilkenny streets, to miss out on that!!

From the first day we stayed here, we loved everything that the Rivercourt Hotel had to offer, as well as Kilkenny. The staff were welcoming, kind and helpful. From a friendly face in reception to greet us with a smile to the amazing restaurant/ bar staff. Nothing was too much for them to do for us. The food was incredible....
