Excellent central location close to everything but still far enough away from noisy streets. Great service, lovely room. We didn't have a view, but didn't spend much time in the room anyway. Kilkenny is a great, fun place and this location was perfect for our visit. We'd definitely stay here again.

Great location but for a 4star hotel needs a lot of maintenance work inside and out flower baskets dying outside could do with a good power hose . Bar food expensive and very poor entertainment midweek which if I had paid full price as quoted by hotel is poor especially during peak season .alot of residents were older population so in house music would have suited them

Very nice location as you are looking at the Kilkenny castle over the river in front of the hotel. You can walk across the bridge to the town which is just darling...good pubs and a variety of shopping choices. Also the breakfast at the hotel was very generous with lots of variety.

Stayed here while competing in the Kilkenny Triathlon. Perfect location overlooking Kilkenny Castle where the event takes place. The staff were very friendly and helpful with storing my bike. Although there was a wedding reception at the hotel you could not hear the celebrations from the room. I did hear people in the next room talking loudly during the night though. The breakfast was also excellent.
