Hotel is around the city side, close to main road to town. It needs to pay 40 minutes to get the central and popular sceneries. No lift to serve if you carry a big luggage. No warm air condition is available even temperature at nights now are around 6 degree celsius. Wifi is strong and with sufficient parking for your driving.

"Out if the way"
Very nice hotel/B&B. The vroom was very clean and comfortable but the bed was a bit to sift for my liking. It's a bit if a walk to get back into the main part of town but that gives you a chance to work off that last pint if the night.

"Pleasant hotel just outside downtown Kilkenny"
This was a very clean, pleasant little hotel a few minutes' drive from the main streets of Kilkenny. The owner works the front desk and was courteous, helpful and patient in giving us directions and advice. There's also a nice, quiet hotel bar available, if you're into that kind of thing. The complimentary breakfast was good, but nothing to write home about. The only real problem we had was that our bathroom door did not fully close, which did not bother us too much. A big thank you to the proprietor -- I'd definitely come back.

This is a lovely warm and friendly place to stay. I enjoyed every minute of my stay here. I was travelling by myself but did not feel out of place. The hotel is situated very close to the centre of Kilkenny City which makes it ideal for sight seeing. I will definitely stay here again and would strongly recommend it, all the quality and value of the more expensive hotels in the area.

"Excellent!"
Ted the owner was a great guy. As soon as we got there he spent time showing us a map and telling us where the good restaurants were, which ones offered free traditional music and when. We had an issue with another guest being too loud and Ted resolved that right away. We spent two nights here. Great location just out of the city so it wasn't loud. Great breakfast too!

We were very disappointed with the cleanliness of our room, especially the bathroom.The underpillow cases on the beds were not clean. The radiater in the bathroom was filthy. We have written a letter of complaint to the Hotel but so far have not had a reply.

"Kilkenny House Hotel Credit card rip off"
Arrived at Hotel and paid bill using my euro credit card. Reception informed me that as my card was not an Irish one they would add 2 euros to the bill. Rip Off Hot breakfast in the morning was minimal consisting of fried egg, beans and sausage. Hotel is 20/25 minutes walk from town centre

"Convenient tourist hotel at a great price!"
Although the Kilkenny House Hotel's décor is a bit tired it is well maintained. Management is interested in the guests' opinion of their experience and solicits comments to ensure that all needs have been met. I had a small issue and the concern to remedy was genuine. It should be noted that there is no lift/elevator, which can be a problem if there is a person with a disability or you are bringing in heavy bags. If you are paying by credit card, which most guest do, there is a surprise posting on the reception desk of a E2 surcharge. I found this nickel and dime fee annoying and suggested to the manager that this should be listed on their website. In reality it should be discontinued as it is unrealistic to expect people to pay in cash in this day and age, unless you are trying to fool the tax man! Otherwise increase you room rate to cover the credit card fees. The buffet breakfast offered is varied and has something for everyone. Suggest that they provide two toasters to avoid the breakfast back up that kept occurring. Need better instructions on website to get to hotel. That being said, it is located on a main street very convenient to town center with lots of free parking. Would definitely recommend the Kilkenny House Hotel and will stay there again if in the area!

"Unsatisfactory"
Hotel room was not very clean. The first thing we noticed was that the kettle had old dirty water sitting in it with scale. Hadn't been cleaned for probably weeks. There was hair on the table. There was thick dust behind the bathroom sink on the floor. The goods lift was not work so had to carry the luggage up and down the stairs ourselves! We requested to move from 2nd to 1st floor as we were there for two nights, but even though the owner agreed this he didn't do anything about it. Quite disappointed. The breakfast was ok.

"A little disappointed"
Upon check in I was told I had to pay and extra 25 Euros to have my daughter stay in the room ,which I had previously booked many months in advance. I specifically booked a room with three beds which apparently wasn't included in the price I paid? The front desk clerk, possibly the owner said he uses his discretion when renting rooms. He didn't want some guests disturbing others and since we were a family it was fine we took the room at the added expense. He also advised us the attached bar served light food until around 2200 hrs. He arrived shortly after 1900 hrs and there was no food served. On a positive, there was a nice breakfast included.

"Acceptable for the price but not a special find"
The TV remote did not work and the TV was not reachable without standing on a chair. You have to move the furniture to find a plug. The beds were comfortable but we had purchased a queen and got a double. It is located a 20 minute walk from the centre of town but reasonably priced.

"very comfy hotel"
When we arrived and checked in we could only use debit card or cash, no credit cards. Lovely room, comfiest bed ever . We were on second floor and as there is no lift we had to haul luggage up two flights of stairs. Not great if you have health issues. There is a lovely homely bar in the hotel but though the room info says there is barfood available , there isn't. Breakfast is continental and served in a roomy dining room. Overall we would stay again but it does lack luxury.
