They were undertaking renovations but the hotel overall was very nice. The dining room staff went above and beyond to accommodate my food allergy and everyone was super nice.

Location was wonderful, staff was so friendly, helpful and I can not say enough kind things about the staff. But the hotel needs an update, fresh coat of paint, new bed skirt (at least in my room) lobby smells old, which they try to mask with candles (at least they are aware) They had great shampoo and body wash in the rooms ( a brad called karre); however tub needs to be resurfaced and the mattress was so hard! Overall it was not terrible, but I will not stay there again, (I won't stay anywhere twice unless it was amazing).

The room was large and comfortable. It was quiet at night and the location was a short walk and convenient to the city center and the Kilkenny castle. The staff and people of the town were very friendly. We had lunch at a restaurant called Petronella, on a side street, and it was the best food of the trip. Kyteler's Inn was pleasant, with good food and great entertainment. The view from the hotel included the castle and provided the perfect backdrop for our trip.

Sept. 2014: We were very pleased with our stay at the Kilkenny River Court. The hotel was so charming, the staff was warm and friendly, and our rooms were comfortable. There is no air conditioning in the rooms, which was fine for us, as the weather was cool and we opened the windows. This may be an issue for some, especially during the warm season. The location is great - very close to the main area of town, as well as the Kilkenney Castle. We were only able to spend one day/evening in Kilkenney, but it was one of our favorite stops.

The hotel is ideally located in Kilkenny and within walking distance of everything. Fantastic view of Kilkenny Castle! However staff was not very friendly & for a "luxury" hotel our room felt more like a hostel... No air conditioning & windows did not open very much. View out to the parking lot with loud patrons late into the night.

We loved our visit to Kilkenny River Court Hotel; of the 7 hotels/B&Bs we stayed in during our 17-day trip around Ireland, this was tied for first place with the Old Presbytery in Kinsale. We stayed for two nights, and our second floor room not only looked out over the river, but the little balcony featured a view of Kilkenny Castle to the left and the village to the right. The room and hotel amenities were perfect, the breakfast was fantastic--especially sitting out by the river on a sunny morning in June--and the staff well-trained, courteous, and helpful. Add to that a good bar and bar patio, also on the river, and we couldn't have been much happier. Perfect location for strolling the town, walking to the castle and cathedrals. A must-stay; I look forward to a return visit.

On the surface this hotel looks appealing, but it comes up short. The wifi was atrociously slow and inadequate. The staff is inadequate and overwhelmed with working in poor systems. The food is marginal. It's too noisy for its location. Otherwise, a decent hotel with a one of the best locations in Kilkenny. Just keep expectations down.

The room was a little warm so we opened the windows which made it comfortable. However, then it was noisy at night. The first night was a wedding reception and there was a bank holiday and festival in Kilkenny so the noise was probably due to them. The hotel service was great and the food was very delicious.

Wedding guests seemed to have stayed on the first floor exactly where I was and going through those fire-doors at all hours, which banged extremely loudly. I had to call the front desk 3 times to get the door fixed but in the end didn't get much sleep at all. I had 3 beds in my room and it felt a bit like a football room next to a stadium, but otherwise, I really can't complain. Staff was nice, room clean, and mainly off the main street, but within walking distance, as that street can get and is loud.

Located in the centre of Kilkenny adjoining the Bridge this hotel is the ideal location for that long weekend ,close to the Castle , shopping and nightlife. The staff are very attentive , professional and pleasant. Car parking is plentiful although the off street entrance can catch you out. Overall well worth a visit.

This couldn't be any better. Great staff, location and room. What could be nicer than waking up and looking out your window to view a 'real' castle. The staff were so friendly. We shopped at nicest shops for 'made in Ireland' and visited a castle. Quaint pubs with traditional music. This is all that a visit to Ireland should be!

The staff at this hotel was very helpful and the location in Kilkenny could not have been better. The hotel even has ample parking which is not always the case in Ireland. The hotel does not supply wash cloths in the room unless you order them . which I found strange. We added breakfast to our room and it was a great idea, good coffee and good breakfast with great view of Kilkenney Castle.

We had a vey nice one night stay at Kilkenny River Court. Nice public rooms, lovely location right on river, large room with nice amenities. Vey well located for all Kilkenny has to offer yet just across the river from the Main Street so you can walk to everything easily but it's not right in the middle of all the bars and restaurants. Just down the street from Langston's restaurant which was beautiful and good food. Great view of castle from riverfront rooms and restaurants.

The Kilkenny River Court hotel is in a perfect location right in the middle of town and across the river from Kilkenny Castle with great photo views from the dining area. Parking was also very convenient for the hotel - but watch carefully for the sign as it comes up immediately after crossing the bridge. Staff was helpful. The room was clean and comfortable although is starting to show minor signs of wear. That being said, however, I would highly recommend this hotel and be happy to return.

Love the location. There's a beautiful waterside walkway that starts across from the hotel. Go over the bridge and turn left. An alternative on the hill above (access near the end of the walk) leads you back. The food was good, but I'd give it a 3.5 or 4, instead of five.
