"Over priced for what you get. Not 4* quality rooms"
We stayed for 1 night in The Kilkenny Rivercourt Hotel. Rooms clean but very worn. Bed very hard. Not 4* quality. Will not stay again. Reception staff very helpful. Did not dine in the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A picturesque location"
Unfortunately only a one night stay, but what a great experience! Located across the river from town centre and a short walk to Kilkenny Castle. Staff excellent and bountiful breakfast. Large comfortable room.Genuine Expedia guest review
Breakfast was very good. Room was clean, however walls were paper thin between adjoining rooms. A simple lick of paint would have worked wonders and despite having a great view from the bedroom of Kilkenny castle, the windows had not been washed externally in what must have been years.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was Culture Night -"
Ok but on return to the hotel on Fri night at about 10.30 the porter in reception refused to look at me as I wanted to order a sandwich but he continued on the phone and just ignored me. I stood for 7 mins - I have an injury and am on a crutch......I just went to bed. - the bar food was over. Pity he did recognise me as a customer....Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Lovely hotel in great location"
Very nice hotel close to the centre of Kilkenny overlooking Kilkenny Castle and with onsite parking. Good size rooms. Hot showers but water pressure wasn't great. Reasonable breakfast. Reception staff were friendly and helpful but the service on the balcony and in the Bistro was very slow. Would definitely stay here again but would find somewhere […] else for an evening meal.

An excellent hotel with extremely friendly and professional staff. The standard room was very nicely decorated. Location was perfect - practically in the center of Kilkenny. Would definitely stay here again. One point to note - the hotel charges for parking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not a 4 star quality room"
Location was great and service was also great but the room wasn't the cleanest and the bathroom was very very basic ! The shower hose was fixed to the wall so I was unable to have a shower without getting my hair wet and when I went to turn the heat up the handle fell off soaking the floor and towels and on my request for extra towels u was waiting […] nearly 30 mins for dry ones ! Over all was not impressed and would not stay again ! Staff was great cant praise them enough ! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Had a great time at the river court. Room was very comfortable and a lovely view of the castle.would recommend getting a river view room with balcony.will be back again for a longer stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Central location and great views"
Good stay we have stayed before, room was comfortable and the staff very helpful, breakfast was excellent and the views from the terrace which overlooks the river and the castle beyond were second to none. We would definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"well placed hotel"
a lack of air conditioning on one of the hottest days of the year was the only issue with this hotel to mar an otherwise good stayGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic place to stay"
Our first two nights in Ireland, so I had high expectations - and the River Court didn't disappoint. It was clean, spacious and very welcoming. The location was magic, being across from Kilkenny Castle and a few minutes walk to the main streets. Thoroughly recommend it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Rivercourt was a pleasure"
I had only one complaint about this Hotel and it was a good complaint really the room was way to hot , but lucky enough they supplied electric fans ! I had a two night stay here with The Rivercourt, it was a pleasure beautiful hotel, staff very friendly and very helpful, the hotel in general was up to a very high standard in all areas. I would recommend […] this hotel to anyone that is looking to stay in Kilkenny, i will definitely be going back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Enjoyable stay at Kilkenny River Court Hotel"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kilkenny River Court Hotel. We were greeted by friendly staff and our room was spacious, clean and comfortable.

The location was fabulous, within walking distance to all the […] Restaurants and shops. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"excellent location but bit basic"
Great location, we parked the car and walked everywhere during our stay. Booked this hotel, as wanted something with a bit of character, but our room and health suite were on the verge of needing a refurb, as furniture /fittings showed a lot of wear. Little touches like towels, tea/coffee, toiletries were skimped on, which I don't expect in a 4 star. […] We ate in the bar and restaurant and had to send 1 dinner back as it was inedible, which was a first for us and spoiled an evening meal. Staff were all attentive and polite in all areas. Ok overall , but wouldn't recommend if you are after a special break. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic views of the river and castle"
Our stay at Killkenny River lodge was great. The room was large and comfortable (a little warm) but we were able to open the windows to let fresh air in. Bed was comfortable and the bathroom was excellent and clean. Breakfast was wonderful with a great variety of food and the restaurant had a fabulous view of the river and castle. Kilkenny is a lovely […] city to walk around. It has a village atmosphere and everyone is friendly. There are plenty of pubs to go to of an evening and most of them have live Irish music and even Irish Dancing which was a real treat. Kytelers Inn had delicious food and a fabulous band in the evening. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The swimming pool and sauna were a disappointment.Did not enjoy the afternoon carvery,service was poor and food average.because of this we did not dine in the restaurant in the evening as intended. The rest of the of our experience in the hotel was positive. Great location with nice rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Because of the location, we will be back again."
This hotel is in needs of refreshments, for example, air conditioning among other things. Services is friendly but nothing more. Location is fantastic. Free parking is an asset for the hotel. Can use some entertainment at night.Genuine Expedia guest review
Arrived on a Saturday, the reception staff were most accomodating in checking us in quickly. All the staff throughout were both friendly, helpful and efficient. Leisure facilities were very good but would benefit if a Sauna was installed. Overall - a most enjoyable stay in KilkennyGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is off the street so less noisy and very comfortable country-style hotel with a riverside section. No disturbances in the building either but I did wear earplugs. Room was very clean and comfortable although the shower was poor and the disabled toilet was not clean. Very close to everything including the train station. There is a great Italian […] across the street called Little Italy and the castle is close by for walking on a sunny morning. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The only real fault I could find with the room was the temperature, it was too hot and no air conditioning. There was however an electric fan which came in very useful. I can only imagine it would have been very uncomfortable in summer.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect location, dated room"
Whle the location was perfect, the room felt quite old and distressed. We were expecting more for this hotel based on the reviews we researched. However, the breakfast buffet was excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Only problem is no air conditioning in any bedrooms, in a 4 star hotel ?Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely hotel in fabulous location"
Great hotel in a lovely location having great customer service along with a proper sit-down breakfast with all the trimmings. Highly recommendable. (decor in room slightly dated and could do with a refresh)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect hotel to see Kilkenny"
Helpful and friendly staff. Great location, easy to find with loads of parking available. The hotel offers good facilities - swimming pool, gym and spa. Food at the River Court is also very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
The location of the hotel is ideal. It's in the heart of the city and the public areas offer a view of the River Nore and Kilkenny Castle. We found the staff welcoming and friendly. Breakfast, which was included in our rate, was well presented and very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
Perfect base for all kilkenny has to offer day & night Delicious breakfast & dining room with lovely views of the castle. Staff were lovely & v friendly. Would recommend without hesitation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Windows need to be replaced or insulated could hear the river as if the window were wide open. Also curtains hanging off the pole and not blackout, for a nice hotel the small details letting them down.Genuine Expedia guest review
All 10 of my family where delighted with the standard of the hotel- a busy weekend and yet staff stood out of the training they had, a very high standard,--we all commented on the delight of the lay out of this hotel- one little negitive, a heater in the beautiful out door garden at night would have been a delight.--thank you for the reward of spending […] money!

"Best location in Kilkenny"
The Kilkenny Rivercourt hotel commands an enviable setting over looking the river and castle, in the heart of the city. Excellent levels of service throughout stay. Yummy breakfast. I will definitely be returning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dated but convenient"
Not for the young but more for the old. Internet in room doesn't work unless you are prepared to be standing in the hall way. Thin walls and dingy carpets. Decor is not 21st century. All see better days.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I think that a hotel that in incapable of serving a guest with 2 slices of toast within 15 minutes after they started their breakfast late, is not one that should be catering to business travellers. Good location, relatively unsafe way into the hotel from the road though given that there is no separate are for pedestrians and cars and it is quite narrow. […] Early finish for a restaurant and leisure centre as well I thought. Probably great for those who are not business travellers with limited time in the morning and arrive back late in evening.

"Lovely views, great location"
Our stay in this hotel was wonderful. The rooms were clean, the food in the restaurant was very good, and the staff were helpful and friendly. The lovely shopping area of Kilkenny is within a two minute walking distance which was highly advantageous as my mother has mobility problems. Kilkenny is a lovely medieval city and the boutiques make for a wonderful […] shopping experience. A walk along the the river is a must-see, and the promenade is kept clean.

"Not going back."
We have stayed at the Rivercourt in the past but were disappointed to see how much it has gone down. The Rivercourt boasted having a chef from the Q.E.2 in the past, but he must have set sail again as the food this time was not up to the usual standard. Breakfast was really awful on both mornings, the food was cold and greasy with no hot option for […] anyone who doesn't eat meat apart from cold scrambled eggs. when a guest asked if there was any more fruit salad as the bowl was empty the waitress brought out a bowl of apples and oranges and plopped them where the fruit salad had been (i couldn't help but laugh!) Dinner wasn't much better, although it was Valentines night and they were busy... we had to ask twice for our desert, sorry Rivercourt -your no longer worth the money!!

"Close to all amenities."
We had a lovely few days in Kilkenny, the hotel was fine, I do have to say that the heat of the room made it very uncomfortable. This was with the radiator turned off. Had to leave windows open all night in order to try and get some air to circulate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Almost everything wonderful. BUT didn't think we should pay for parking. €5 very little but it's just the general idea of it. Secondly heat in room was excessive, difficult to sleep, no air conditioning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
