Butler Court is a perfect place to stay. Close and walking distance to everything in town. Parking in the car park one block away removed any worry of having a vehicle in town. The room is very spacious and the bathroom was of nice size. The wifi was not very strong in our room but we managed. Would definitely stay...

This delightful Bed & Breakfast is located a block from the center of Kilkenny. My room was large and included the requisite tea kettle, and a refrigerator stocked daily with a pint of local Irish milk, two jars of local yogurt, butter, and a pint of locally fresh-squeezed orange juice. Freshly baked Irish brown bread is delivered every day. Additionally,...

My husband and I stayed at Butler Court on our recent trip to Ireland. It was out first stop on a 15 day trip across the south of Ireland. We enjoyed our stay at Butler Court. The rooms aren't large, but they are very comfortable and clean. It was also near the center of town and Kilkenny Castle. Yvonne and...

This is right in the city-centre, with secure parking around the corner. The rooms were directly accessible off a courtyard without going through reception, which meant we could come and go as we pleased (and come back late at night!) The breakfast in the rooms was a quirky touch, and absolutely delicious! We'll definitely stay here next time we're back...

Butler Court in Kilkenny is clean, quiet & convenient. John & Yvonne are consummate proprietors. The in-room breakfast is fabulous. The Butler Court is a short walk to all of Kilkenny's major sites. It's a great value. You cannot go wrong staying here!! It's grand.

A wonderful place to stay while in Kilkenny. It was right next to the castle and High st. with all the shops. Yvonne was kind and welcoming and gave some great advice for where to eat and what to do.

Very well located in Kilkenny close to the castle and numerous restaurants. Rooms are wonderful - clean, modern and spacious. Parking is available free of charge in a nearby lot. The owners are very friendly and helpful. And of course, there is Bo the dog!

A comfortable modest room with all the essentials. Located on the main road into Kilkenny the rooms are located up a flight of wooden stairs and along an outdoor balcony. No parking on site, but parking in a private garage one block away was convenient. Enjoyed the short walk past the castle to the pubs and dinner.

Yvonne and John are excellent hosts, always up for a blether. The room I had was just what I needed and the location couldn't be better in this smashing town. Reserved my room for next April already. Can't wait to return. Thanks, folks.
