Ted and his wife, Michelene, were excellent proprietors and made us feel welcome. Ted has a terrific sense of humor. Nice walk into the town, which wasn't far. Clean and large rooms. Breakfast area was large and easy to use. Nice bar, too.

From the moment we walked in we were made to feel right at home. The owner checked us in and gave us all the information required to make our stay enjoyable. The rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. The bar was tastefully decorated and very welcoming. We would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay if you are in Kilkenny!

"Real irish hospitality"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 11 July 2013 via mobile
On arrival to the hotel I was looking for tickets to the local head to head hurling match which sold out. In true irish fashion the owner of the hotel got me tickets.
Besides the great welcome to the hotel, it has a truely irish atmosphere between the banter and craic with the barman and other guests.
The rooms were ideal and well furnished. And kept in good order.
The breakfast the next morning was great and a fair well tea or orange juice at check out made you want to stay longer.
On my next visit to kilkenny I will be staying here again on the basis that the service was so professional and good but still had a welcoming and comfortable feeling.

TED! The man. The legend. Great welcome. The room had everything you needed. Ted looked after the breakfast as well, which had breads, cereals, juices and fry. We even got offered juice on checkout. Taxi was cheap into town.
