Kilkenny River Court Hotel Reviews
Central, Luxurious hotel Apr 06, 2011
My mum and i went to Kilkenny for two nights as my mum had a voucher for the Kilenny River Court Hotel.
I am not a fan of hotels myself. As an enthusiastic backpacker i prefer to stay in hostels because you meet more people and i prefer the atmosphere but the River Court Hotel was a beautiful four-star hotel in the heart of Kilkenny.
My favourite part of the hotel was the restaurant terrace that overlooks the River Nore which Kilkenny is located on and the majestic, imposing, well-maintained structure of Kilkenny castle is also in view, sitting on top of the hill. The terrace is very European looking on a sunny day and is gorgeous to sit out on and have a drink.
The rooms were clean, perfectly clean. The television didn;t have great channels on it but that isn't too important. The staff are lovely! The breakfast is extensive and delicious. The lesiure centre seemed great too although we didn't use it.
Overall very nice hotel
