    Very good

    Hotel was ok. Car park full with non residents at the time. Breakfast was nice and plenty there to suit all needs , late bar too and very close to the centre of the things. Not worth the price tho.

    Overall the hotel was good for what we needed but the Shower took nearly 10mins for hot water to come through any time you wanted to use it.

    Everything about the Kilford Arms was unique...from the white tiger in the lobby, to the refurbished church inside the bar, to the meandering hallways, to the tree-themed restaurant. Best of all, the manager and staff some of the nicest people we met in Ireland.

    Great location. Close to many pubs that had live traditional Irish music.

    Might be noisy on the weekend but we were there on a Wednesday night. Kilkenny is a great town to visit.

    Fabulous

    Affordable, free parking, location

    We were assigned to a handicapped room and was not told in advance. It was a bit awkward and difficult at times since everything was set up at lower levels.

    Restaurant decor was good as was location of hotel to city centre.

    Hotel room was far too warm even with heating turned off. Shower facility was very poor and shower curtain stuck to you. We were not told breakfast times or check out time on arrival and had no electricity when we arrived in room.We were also not informed that on returning back to hotel at 23.30 that we had to ring a bell at the next door pub to be let in. Restaurant was badly organised at breakfast time and we were given cutlery from a table that had not been cleaned away. We were charged €178 for two nights B+B but there was an advert in the hotel window saying that rooms were available that night for €35.

    Great location. The rooms were clean and comfortable.

    The bar was very dirty our shoes were sticking to the floor it was not cleaned from the time we arrived till we left. The disabled toilet was filthy! The door was open on the disabled toilet as u passed in and out of the bar u could see how dirty it was disgraceful ! It was dirty for at least 12 hours no need for it !

    Its close to the train statiion which is a bonus. Its a clean hotel and staff were very friendly. The bed was so comfy and shower had great water power. Killkenny is a lovely city so the kilford arms is a great central point for touring around. Would stay in the kilford arms again because of the price nice hotel at budget prices..
