"Perfect location with a view of the castle"
This is a charming hotel with a perfect location. It is right on the river with a view of the castle. We were able to walk to everything in this lovely medieval town. The complimentary breakfast was amazing and the staff was very helpful. This hotel has free onsite parking, a real plus in these windy, narrow streets!

Planning our trip to Kilkenny for a family birthday celebration, we chose the River Court based on location, views and on-line reviews only to find out weeks later that is exactly where the party would be held. A bonus. The central location, lovely and accommodating staff and comfortable room with a magnificent view of Kilkenny Castle made our visit all the more wonderful.

"Great location, beyond amazing staff, needs update"
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).

"perfect location in a great location"
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.

"Quaint and well-located"
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.

"Central Kilkenny Hotel"
Based on 4 star rating, was expecting a better hotel. Room was in need of minor repairs and updating. Wifi only worked if you stood in the room near the door or in the lobby area. Buffet breakfast was ok but nothing special. Felt like a hotel for wedding parties and tour groups.

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 quality.no 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

"Great location... staff & room were lacking."
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.

"Fantastic hotel with views of castle, town"
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.

"7 gallons of content in a pretty 10 gallon vase"
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.

"Wonderful location"
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.

"Loud due to wedding"
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.

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 hotel staff and location is great. Lobby looks nice - room was rather tired and needs a re-do of decorating. We reserved a double - and received a double bed plus two singles.

"Kilkenny river court hotel"
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.
