Kilkenny is a gem of a town and the Butler Court was a great find. Yvonne and her husband were great hosts. They offered great recommendations including where to buy shorts on an unusually hot day. Wish we had spent more time in Kilkenny. It is a charming town and just sitting in a cafe and people watching is worth...

We spent 2 delightful nights at Butler Court. It was hard to decide the 'best feature'! Whether the view of Killarney Castle tower as we walked to our spacious, clean, quiet room-or the help and friendship of the hosts - or the ideal location - or the convenient parking - the features were all exceptional. There is 0 I would...

Stayed here based on reviews and to some extent on Rick Steves recommendation. Yvonne was gracious and helpful. The room was clean. I would caution against summertime stay as there is no AC. That said, for the majority of time AC isn't needed. Windows open to walkway that all guests on your floor have access to so it can get...

This is a very comfortable and welcoming inn. The rooms have outdoor entries. They are very spacious and clean. The continental breakfast is in your room, so no need to eat at a specific time. Yvonne and John are really helpful. She came to our rescue when my husband needed medical assitance. Helped with calling clinic, getting taxi, and just...

What a gift Yvonne was as we arrived late one afternoon after our first day of driving in Ireland. Her empathy and sense of humor was just what our harried driver needed. The B&B is cozy with beautiful flowers in the pretty courtyard. The rooms are simple and there is nothing fancy about the bathroom. But everything works and was...

Our family had 2 beautiful rooms here and enjoyed every moment! The rooms are clean, the breakfast is fresh & delicious, and the location is incredibly convenient.

Lovely breakfast with local produce, yogurt, and homemade soda bread. Room was large and very tidy. The BEST part of this hotel however are the hosts... Yvonne pointed us in the right direction, with great advice on how to optimize our time in Kilkenny. She even helped us out with our laundry pick up, as the service down the block...
