"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
Very GoodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Bar was closed at 12 didn't give u any insensitive to stay there ...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
"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
"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
"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.

"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

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
