This is one of the cleanest hotels that I've been in, in Kilkenny. The staff are wonderful!!! They have great midweek prices. The pub staff rock! Especially Tom and Peter! I also enjoy the bands and traditional music that they offer. I prefer Kilfford Arms over anywhere else in Kilkenny, this truly is a home away from home. Thank you

Lovely hotel, had a nice bar and restaurant. Rooms was lovely and tidy, they provided free bottled water. Location was fantastic. Less than a two minute walk to shops and 10 minute walk to the main town centre. Staff were very friendly, will definitely be returning!

Staff were well able for the big group arriving at different times. Nothing was hassle. We were loud in our room playing games in the afternoon but then went out for dinner and stayed out for the night. The room had a bottle opener attached to the cabinet- enough said!
