Margaret scored 4 / 5 on 31/03/2022

Central location & free safe parking. Staff are friendly & welcoming. Room was spotless but in line with the age of the hotel, the bathroom would benefit from a refit. Food was simple and tasty. Amazing incorporation of ruined ancient church into the building. No hesitation in returning! Nice stay.


Collette scored 4 / 5 on 26/03/2022

Very happy with most aspects. I am a wheelchair user and it wasn’t very wheelchair accessible. You had to come out the front door of the hotel and enter the bar or restaurant through another door on the Main Street. We were lucky it wasn’t raining. The ramp here is a few inches to short to be a ramp. Then I had to get out and walk up the steps to the restaurant. So there was actually no wheelchair access to the restaurant. We would definitely go back though. Staff were lovely and helpful. Food was gorgeous, room was lovely and all very reasonably priced.


James scored 5 / 5 on 14/03/2022

Julie scored 2 / 5 on 21/02/2022

I was appalled that staff were either not wearing masks at times or wearing them inadequately. The bathroom had visible signs that it had not been cleaned e.g stains on the basin ad dirt on the floor. I wouldn't recommend this hotel based on these aspects


Caroline scored 3 / 5 on 21/02/2022

We stayed in this hotel for 4 days, they followed present restrictions perfectly, at any stage we didnt feel as if we were at risk.

The food in hotel was superb and had good choices. I would reccomend this hotel and will definitely stay there again.

We chose The Kilford Arms as a welcome break after the Lockdowns. It has a bright and very clean appearance, 2 bars, beer garden, and restaurant. Big Screen and televisions for Sport. Staff were efficient and took time to talk to people, special mention due to Ella in Bar and Don in Restaurant. Room was small with some noise from a bar across the way, when mentioned to Manager Pius, he moved us very quickly to a quieter room. Food: very good Breakfast, excellent Evening Meal.

Nice hotel, nice staff, great location.


Brenda scored 3 / 5 on 07/09/2020

The location of the hotel is ideal and there is on site parking hence I would recommend it for that. The hotel is a bit tired & grotty looking and could do with a sprucing up. The glass doors into reception have so many stickers on them it doesn't look very inviting. Not all staff members followed the current guidelines for COVID-19 i.e. either to socially distance or wear a mask/face covering when unable to social distance. In general there was a lot of staff on duty during breakfast & in the bar but not all were aware or vigilant that customers should come before there social chats.

Lily scored 3 / 5 on 14/07/2014

Hotel rooms were fine with facilities of a 4* (kettle, iron, hairdryer) but the dinner we got was truly awful. Breakfast was fine. We told both restaurant manager and front desk lady and she was to look into it but we heard nothing at all. Would not consider staying there again.


G. scored 2 / 5 on 23/06/2014

Car parking fantastic, wish I could say the same for the rest of the hotel, room could do with a visit from the Brennan brothers, view from the room well I don't no the glass was stained. Breakfast lovely, waiter very friendly. Dinner horrible, thankfully a lot other options to dine out in the town. Would I return no way.

Such friendly people and nothing was every a bother. I liked the relaxed ways of the people and so professional at all times. They have a great way about them. Its like one big happy family. I'd recommend anyone staying in the hotel. The location is just excellent.


Jimmy scored 5 / 5 on 28/04/2014

My wife and I arrived at the Kilford Arms on Tues 22nd April 2014 for 2BB1D. First of all, the car park at the rear of the hotel was very handy. The lady at receiption (Anna) was very welcoming. The room was clean, tidy and peaceful. We had the evening meal the first night. It was very tasty. The French and Portuguese waiters were very helpful and very keen to make our stay satisfying. The dining hall was a Mexican style. The breakfast on both mornings was top notch. The Manager allowed us to leave our car in the car park all day on the date we checked out. We loved the Kilford Arms, Kilkenny. Thanks to all the staff. Jimmy Gollogly

I am sorry to say but out of the Lidl breaks we have been on, this one was not so good, Our room was freezing so my husband went to reception where he was told she forgot to put our heating on, evening meal was a disaster, I was half way through my starter when we asked the waitress where my husbands starter was, she had forgotten to order it, I ordered the roast beef which was sour We were offered a free dessert but i could not eat as the taste in my mouth was vile, I will us Lidl breaks again, but will not stay in the Kilford arms hotel again..

Stayed for 2 nights B&B. Room spacious and clean. Double bed could do with a new mattress as on one side it was a bit lumpy. Staff very friendly and efficient. Breakfast was a bit slap dash. By the time we got through it, the food had gone cold. However microwave available if needed. Not huge selection of fresh fruit or different types of bread at breakfast. Had meal in the bar and food was excellent there. Overall enjoyed our stay. Hotel very central with own car park which was a plus.

The Kilford arms hotel,was one of the best hotels we have stayed in with the children, the room was very spacious everyone had their own space,it was clean and airy,which was much appreciated by my son who has asthma. The staff were very friendly and helpfull.We only had a short stay but we all said if we ever get to go to killkenny again we would stay there again it was so central and having its own car park was a big advantage.


Gareth scored 1 / 5 on 14/09/2012

We stayed for a three night break, hotel has an excellent location and free car parking, found staff in general to be friendly which are the only positives to be found. Overall the hotel was in a poor state of cleanliness in all public areas, corridors to bedrooms not clean and the bedroom itself has a bloodied handprint on the wall. The standard of breakfast was very poor, the hot plate was cold you had to heat your breakfast in the microwave, the selection of cereals was from lidl/aldi and was poor. The bar was dirty but the staff where friendly. Overall it was a very dissappointing stay and i would not go back the Kilford Arms again.

Really nice welcoming hotel. Staff so nice and helpful. We booked two twin rooms and they offered us a family room to sleep 6 and it was lovely and cosy. It had one double bed and four single beds and two portable TV's. It was clean with lots of hangers which makes a change. Small hairdryer on the wall and soap and shower gel dispensers. The bars were excellent. Great choice as to which one to drink in and a nightclub, didn't go to that so can't comment but entrance was free for guests. The breakfast was carvery with excellent helpful staff again. The hotel is just a stones throw away from a lovely shopping centre. In essence yep we will be back

Nice reception area and obviously a busy hotel which is a good sign. The room was ok but poorly ventilated. A large standalone fan was provided, but air con would be better. Plenty of milk for the tea and coffee. WELL DONE!! too many hotels are mean with the milk. Breakfast was nice and service was good. Corridors were a tad noisy at night, probably due to the location of the hotel in Kilkenny City, however there was no noise from the nightclub or pub downstairs or even the street. I would have given a higher rating but for the stuffy room and being woken up by other guests in the corridor. parking was off street and reasonably secure and location was ideal.


Dl scored 3 / 5 on 19/09/2011

good points : Nice hotel, rooms clean, food decent. Good bar and very good service. bad points: they could do with updating the rooms, beds not of great quality. Overall fairly happy though


Declan scored 2 / 5 on 13/09/2011

Very nice hotel with exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, especially at reception. The exception was the bouncer at the night club part of it who was extremely unreasonable and it took ages to convince him that my partner was staying with me (she was not noted on the booking form) to the point that he locked me on one side of the door and her on the other. The only black mark against very good accommodation.


Anne scored 5 / 5 on 04/09/2011

I really enjoed my recent stay in the Kilford Arms.It is in a great location beside the bus and train station. The castle, shops, restaurants and bars are all within walking distance of the hotel.

Kilford arms hotel is very central to all the great bars and shops of Kilkenny. Found the rooms basic with a stale smell( like it use to be a smoking room) Our check in was very efficient and staff were very pleasant. Our dinner was served by a very efficent polish guy and there was a great choice on their menus. We were also given a glass of wine with our dinner,complaints of the manager which was a nice touch. This hotel is great if your not looking to relax and sleep much but party and shop instead!!!! Car parking is free which is a added bonus and hotel is great value for money. I would return again.


Hugo scored 5 / 5 on 23/04/2011

we stayed mid-week and we cannot recomend the Kilford more highly. Its almost in the centre of Kilkenny, a few minutes from the train station, and offered excellent value. The staff were really friendly and the service excellent. They also have a great late night bar with an excellent beer garden (if you smoke like us). Having said that, I know a lot of their weekend business is of the stag/hen variety and we noticed a few of these ariving as we left. However I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Kilford for a short break in the Marble City, just it might get a little ott at the weekend.


Zulica scored 5 / 5 on 08/03/2011

I stayed in the Kilford Arms for 1 night B&B and 1 evening meal but i was very disappointed with the food and would not eat there again, the room was clean but with a very small window and there was parties and music on both sides of us until early in the morning. The only fault i had with the hotel is after 12pm you could not get back into the hotel through the main entrance and had to use the door for the pub, this door was closed and on a dark street and i had to bang on the door and keep buzzing the bell for over 15 mins, I was own my own coming back to the hotel and this was a little bit scarey. Great value for money and will defo be booking with Lidl breaks in the future but not this Hotel.


Fiona scored 5 / 5 on 22/02/2011
