Absolutely perfect location to enjoy Kilkenny. On river with view of Castle and very short walk to awesome pubs. Really fun town I would go there right now if possible. Good breakfast, great staff..Cleeres for pints and Left Bank for good music.

We had a lovely break for 2 nights in the very well appointed River Court Hotel in Kilkenny. It represented very good value for money. The hotel is close to all amenities &:has lovely views of the river & castle from the dining room. The staff are very pleasant & helpful.The hotel reception area & bar is somewhat tired looking & in need of refurbishment. Kilkenny is a city that is buzzing with life & entertainment with music in several pubs every night.

We really enjoyed our four days stay in this lovely Hotel. The location is really great & we didn't need to use the car for the whole length of our stay as you can easily walk to all the historical places of interest & to the City centre shops, restaurants & bars & also to the shopping Malls. Our bedroom had a lovely view out the window of Kilkenny Castle just across the river from the hotel. The staff were extremely helpful & friendly. The breakfast was really good every day & included mushrooms that we love & not every hotel includes in their breakfast choice. The hotel was perfectly clean &including the bedroom which was cleaned every morning & the towels etc replaced. Another little touch was that there was bottled water supplied in the bedroom & replaced everyday. We only have two negative things that we found the first nothing can be done about & that is that the entrance & exit to the hotel car park is through two archways that are rather narrow if you are driving a wide vehicle. The other negative thing was that the catches on our window wasn't very secure as the screws had become a bit loose in the timber frame. All in all a lovely hotel that I would definitely recommend for a stay visiting Kilkenny Castle & the City centre area also.

Room Tip: The rooms with the river & Kilkenny Castle views are really lovely

Our stay here was excellent! We did a room with a view, which I highly recommend; you will not be disappointed! The only problem we had which can happened anywhere was that for a short time our neighbors were extremely noisy.
