Good hotel - very nice staff

Cons: would have like a few more channels on the TV
Location: Very well located - near all the sites e.g. Medievil Mile, Castle etc - really felt we were in the centre of everything.

The rooms have had an upgrade but the bathrooms are in need of updating especially for the price of them. Parking did in a secure garage over the road and is included. Breakfast was okay.

In the centre of Kilkenny with parking close .

Pros: The room and location
Cons: The knowledge of the bar staff and breakfast
Location: As we were only on an overnight stay we didnt get to see or do anything but there was plenty of information at the hotel.
The Hibernian Hotel in Kilkenny is one I would recommend anyone to stay in. The rooms are spacious, clean warm and comfortable. The bar was buzzing on the night we stayed. Even though we were told before hand that there was a late bar and it might be a bit noisy we did not hear anything! The only complaint I had that when I asked the bar tender did they have any smirnoff vodka I was told no but another bartender could get me some. Breakfast was average. It was close to the centre of the town and parking was within walking distance.
