Great place short distance from Kilkenny
We stayed at the Talbot Hotel because we could not get a room in Kilkenny but were pleased with the hotel and its location, near the highway and a short distance from Kilkenny. Less expensive and more convenient than staying in Kilkenny. We were tired of driving, so we called a cab to take us to the center of town for dinner which was a wonderful experience. Breakfast was terrific. The only negative was the bar had a band (Sat night) We had a room on the 2nd floor, but felt the band was in the room with us. Luckily the music ended at 0100 and we were able to sleep.

Good Family Hotel
We stayed at the Talbot Hotel for one night and it suited our family of six well. We stayed in two spacious rooms with a double bed/single bed in each. The furnishings in our rooms were a little outdated but were perfectly fine. The restaurant downstairs served good food and the full Irish breakfast buffet on the fourth floor made a good start to our day. The pool was very nice too. Take note that after 7 PM children under 16 are not allowed in the pool. The hotel is located adjacent to what appeared to be an older shopping mall and we had a little trouble finding the entrance to the hotel itself, which is off the main road (and not the mall.) Staff at the hotel -- check-in, fitness center, restaurants, were all very friendly and helpful.

It worked...
Breakfast buffet was quite good. Pool was nice but a little warm. Pillows were flat. Room was very warm (but it was a very hot day) - no in-room A/C.
