Kilkenny House Hotel, Kilkenny
VERY Disappointed!
Not impressed! For the amount of money we paid, we should have heat in the room (there was a radiator but No Way to turn it on). No one answered when I rang the desk. The bed was SOOO uncomfortable, and looked like a rollaway bed. There was NO top sheet, just two separate twin comforters to put over us (we got to share skin cells and who knows what else from/with others. (GROSS!)) The bartender either ignored us or was just unobservant, so we left after about ten minutes of waiting. There were other negative things, but they are small in comparison. Positives were, the front desk gentlemen were pleasant, breakfast was included and was pretty good. I'll just say, You've been warned!

A poor bed
The basic requirement of a hotel room at €70 per night, is a proper bed. The Double bed was small and uncomfortable. They appear to have no double dovea and instead put two single bed dovea's, half lapped on the double bed, which made for an uneasy night. At around 3am there was a lot of noise from the room above.

Towels were great and even had a wash cloth
Good location, 20 minutes easy walk to center, very comfortable beds with good linnens.

good stay
I left the car headlights on overnight. The staff willing tried hard to help me resolve this. This includes leaving the desk to help push the car across the parking lot to jump start it. -- The breakfast buffet offered was affordable and very nice. I was expecially impressed with the type of muesli they provided, but it all was good. -- The venue isn't awesome, but it's not bad. It's an extended walk in to town, but Kilkenny is a great town to visit, on the way from Dublin to the south west sights.
