Excellent Stay from perfect location across the street from the castle to accommodating staff, to clean, comfortable and charming room!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient Location but noisy"
The hotel had two weddings going on during our stay. The guests were rather noisy very late into the night. The doors in the hotel banged shut all night long. The staff seemed less friendly than other hotels in Ireland maybe because they were so busy. The location of the hotel was good. Very convenient. You could walk to everything. But no AC in the […] rooms so it got a little stuffy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel right near the center of town"
This hotel was located about a block from the center of town, right on the river with gorgeous views. It was also very close to the Buseirann bus stop, which was fantastic as we didn't want to have to carry our luggage long distances. The staff was friendly, the room was clean and quiet, and the included breakfast was very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very beautiful hotel"
Very nice hotel right across the river from the Kilkenny Castle. There are many nice shops all within walking distance from the hotel. The hotel was very formal, which didn't fit my style exactly, but I was very nice and clean.Genuine Expedia guest review

We had the most delightful stay with the Kilkenny River Court Hotel. The staff was incredible. They truly strive for world class service and are delivering it! The hotel is indeed located in view of the Kilkenny Castle, the hotel accommodations were wonderful with the exception of the walls being very thin, however we were told that an entire renovation […] will be taking place to fix a few minor things including the thin walls. We asked reception for a few suggestions to tour whilst there and were giving a thorough break down of the best places in town along with maps. The city itself is charming and the residents take pride in their community. There are many amazing historic sites to tour in Kilkenny, as well as great shopping and the Rivers Court Hotel is located in easy walking distance to all of them. Had a phenomenal stay and experience, great breakfast, we will be going back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Wonderful hotel in great location, our room gave us a castle view. Very attentive staff especially bar manager who chatted happily to us and gave some great suggestions for places to visit. The riverside terrace was just perfect for an evening drink and we wished we had a longer stay to enjoy it in the sunshine.... Didn't have time for the spa but it […] looked very nice. All in all this was a perfect hotel and we look forward to visiting again. Kilkenny was a lovely town which we thoroughly enjoyed visiting. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

central location, within walking distance to everything. Attentive staff. Room comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful hotel in a beautiful city"
Our stay was amazing in Kilkenny. The hotel was beautiful with very friendly staff. The only issue was that there was no air conditioning in the room and therefore extremely hit in the room. However, I would recommend it to anyone going to Kilkenny, as the view from the terrace restaurant is of Kilkenny Castle. Would definitly stay here again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great View-bad smell"
This hotel had an uncommonly bad smell when you leave the lobby. The rooms were dated and also stank. This hotel needs to be gutted and made over. That said the patio overlooking the castle was lovely,definitely the best quality of this locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Kilkenny Central hotel"
Our room was upgraded without asking on arrival. All staff were exceptionally helpful and pleasant. Plenty of space in room, public areas fine. Breakfast very good, buffet style. No problem getting parked in hotel car park. Recommended.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel in City Centre opposite Castle"
Lovely hotel, Kilkenny Castle is across the River from it. there is a lovely outdoor area to sit and eat and drink and the Castle overlooks this area with the River in between. Its a noisey hotel but there is nowhere in Kilkenny that is quiet, its a lively town at weekends. The hotel is fairly large with lovey seating areas to chill out. The food was […] excellent and the room perfect The staff were the best part, all friendly and helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Perfect City hotel"
This hotel could not be better placed. Five minutes from Kilkenny Castle and the Main Street. Great staff especially Ashling and Bernie who serve quality food on the river terrace with smiles and professionalism. You won't find better!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Excellent, Beautiful and enchanting view"
The service was great. There was parking on site. The view fro our balcony and room of the castle was enchanting and romantic. The restaurant downstairs was excellent and service was great! The breakfast in the morning was the best we had had throughout Ireland and the service was outstanding! The hotel is central to everything with great pubs and entertainment […] right infront of our hotel. It was an excellent experience! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A good hotel experience"
It was our second time to stay at this hotel as we liked it the last time we were there. It is well located, comfy, clean and good value. The breakfast was enjoyable and of good quality. We had no complaints.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and lovely staff"
Stayed here during arts festival and had a lovely weekend. Although this hotel is right in centre of town, it feels outside it as it is off Main Street by river. Very comfy room and bed. Great breakfast. Will stay here again next year for arts festival!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Confortable hotel in a very central location"
We were in Kilkenny for a few days of the Arts Festival. This hotel is very centrally located opposite the castle and convenient to all the sights and event locations. The river terrace offers a beautiful view in good weather. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were a decent size and the bathrooms were modern and clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Bathroom was a bit dated and some missing grout and a cracked tile. Room was excellent otherwise. Car park a bit tight and overflow behind hotel didn't give a great impression. Great location though, leisure facilities were excellent, food was excellent, and within walking distance to everything.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"River. Court hotel kilkenny"
Very nice hotel beside the river and close to all places of interest. Had a Irish music and Dance session in Kilkenny Castle also came across a small bar Hole in wall and had a most amazing night of entertainment. If in Kilkenny make sure to visit this place. We were there on a Friday night so check before visitingGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel very good for access to town"
This is the only hotel I've ever stayed in that charges it's guests for car parking. Not good. Tried the hotel bistro the food was of a very low standard bad value for money. Sorry to say I won't use this hotel again thankyouGenuine Expedia guest review
"excellent value & location"
Terrific staff, great value for money & location could not have been better. Room size very good. Easier to enter with the car when not peak hour traffic. Kilkenny one of the high lights of the trip- great pups.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Where the CAT truly Laughs"
When you are heading to Kilkenny on a June Bank Holiday there is nowhere else to watch the CAT Laughs festival but the River Court Hotel. Its gorgeous barbeque, its live music, its riverside seating area, its friendly staff, its central location and castle views make this the only choice in Kilkenny. I am a true fan and will be booking for 2015.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Location in Kilkenny"
Great two night stay. Staff were excellent and accommodating. Hotel food was excellent. Location is perfect. Did not use the leisure facilities to rate them.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Suite Experience"
When we arrived at the hotel we were advised that the hotel had made a mistake on the dates of our reservation and that they were overbooked for the first night. Annette, the front desk staff member, was genuinely apologetic and explained that it was the hotel's error and that they were going to do everything they could to make it up to us. They moved […] us to another hotel for the first night. The substituted hotel was a comparable hotel (5 star) located 5 minutes away, and would honour the price that we had arranged through Hotels.com. We drove to the sub hotel to check in. They were expecting us, had upgraded us to a suite, and provided us with free parking for the night. The next day we went back to the Kilkenny River Court Hotel. They had also upgraded us to a suite, provided us with complimentary parking, and discounted our rate by 50%. The suite was beautiful, with a balcony overlooking the river and the Kilkenny Castle. The location of the hotel is perfect, within walking distance of all the attractions, great shopping and wonderful restaurants & pubs. The onsite restaurant had good food and fair prices, and a beautiful patio with views of the castle. The only negative is that the rooms are not very soundproof, so we didn't really get a great nights sleep. There was a couple fighting in the next room, we could hear people partying as they left the pub across the street, and to top it all off a car alarm was going off for hours.

"Good but with some hiccups"
A nice hotel but two things - Firstly, I had to ask 3 times for a replacement key card for my door as it constantly didn't work. Secondly, hotel guests paying for parking? Very strange I thought. You have to pay € a night to park there, which I think is crazy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A memorable romantic stay in a fantastic location!"
Had a romantic 2 night stay with my girlfriend and we were both impressed with the hotel! We were upgraded to a lovely castle/river view room on arrival, which was a great surprise and quiet a romantic setting! Really comfortable king bed too! The staff were very friendly and professional and nothing was too much. Breakfast was really good so much choice […] and very tasty, we felt guity as we over indulged so went for a big swim. Good leisure facilities too! Have a feeling we will come back in the summer as we really enjoyed our stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The only thing was that the hotel was extremely hot in the rooms and overall. Also the tea and coffee would be better on view and I think there should be safes in the roomsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to restaurants and shopping"
excellent helpful staff, good breakfast, nice location would definitely returnGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms little shabby, paper peeling in room corners, socket plug loose on wall,curtains off hooks and rail, and not closing properly.comments card there from previous guest, rooms and furniture nice. Common areas well maintained ,very clean and very luxurious. I wasnt happy having to pay ten euro to park cars when room costs over one thirty euro per […] night. Think this should be complimentary.

"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
