Positive Reviews

Location, Location, Location

The Kilkenny Inn offers one of the best locations in town, right across from St. Canice's Cathedral. Many guests noted the ease with which they could access Kilkenny's attractions. With a few minutes' walk, they found great bars, restaurants, shops, and nightlife options.

Friendly and cheerful staff

Many satisfied guests listed the staff as a particularly bright spot during the stay. Whether it was a notably warm welcome, or consistent service throughout their visit, travellers appreciated the extra effort put in by employees. Also noted was the cleanliness of the entire hotel.

Breakfast will prepare you for the day

Reviewers consistently mentioned breakfast in positive reviews. They felt that both the quantity and quality of food provided by the hotel was significantly higher than expected given the price of each room. Many call it a great value hotel, perhaps the best in town.

Negative Reviews

It can get noisy

Many negative reviews listed noise as a blight on their vacation. While some of them found the rooms to be adequate, they could hear everything going on next door or through the hallway. More than one called the hotel unfit for family vacations due to the number of parties going on at one time.

Old rooms

Some disappointed guests mentioned that the rooms in the hotel could use some updating. They thought that, given the price, the carpets and wallpaper were dated. In some cases, they found bathroom fixtures to be broken.

Wi-Fi could be better

While the hotel advertises free Wi-Fi, several guests noted that Internet connectivity was not optimal in most of the rooms. Some had trouble connecting anywhere outside of reception. This led them to conclude that the hotel was generally adequate, but a bit on the basic side of things.
