Stephen Vahey and his crew treated us like family. The service was swift, friendly, and of the quality of the fare was exceptional. Local, homely, and fantastic. Remember to park in the in the Q park.

Stayed in the hotel in February-a Christmas present from my daughter! Lovely hotel and delightful food in the bar on the night. Sadly part of the present was a visit to the "Spa" A grubby dressing room with no hair dryer or towel! Badly trained staff who made little effort-not even the manners to call clients by the name but by their booked treatments!! A Therapist who walked out of the room after my treatment without evening handing me my glasses. Guests using mobile phones and taking selfies in the "relaxation" room! Over all advice-enjoy this lovely hotel but avoid the spa.

We stayed here for a family occasion last night. Everything was perfect. We had dinner in the restaurant which was delicious. We needed 6 rooms and they managed to put us all together. Breakfast was lovely too. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Location is very central in kilkenny within walking distance of verything. I really cannot think of a single negative. We have another family occasion in December and hope to return again. Well done everybody in the ormonde hotell

Stayed at the Ormonde Hotel for one night last week ,it was really nice we got up graded as we where celebrating our anniversary nice surprise,we were met by a lovely lady called Cristiana on arrival and checking out never got her name but also a very nice .Breakfast was very good too ,never got to leisure centre maybe on our next visit Over all I would recommend get location.

We had a wonderful night celebrating our first year anniversary in the ormond hotel kilkenny we were warmly welcomed back after our wedding there last year.our meal was amazing the steak with pepper sauce and homemade chips was delicious.a lovely waitress brought us out a glass of procecco on the house to celebrate.there was a fabulous singer in the bar playing music as we ate which added to a great athmosphere in the restaurant part .this hotel is in a brilliant location two mins from the center of kilkenny it also has a lovely swimming pool with a spa .we are looking forward to returning soon to our favourite hotel ,thanks to all the lovely staff who gave us a great weekend including Chloe the events manager and Sinead on the front desk 😀😀

Had a wonderful overnight stay with my other half. Arrived on a freezing cold Monday, so didn't leave the hotel at all. We had lunch and dinner in the restaurant - excellent food and service, and reasonably priced. Leisure centre was fab, again great staff. Had breakfast delivered the following morning - on time and delicious. Room was lovely, good size, nice decor, and good shower. All in all a great stay, and look forward to going back. Next time I go I will go for the dinner & BB package, as the food in the restaurant was superb - highly recommend this hotel, and its right in the middle of the town too

Stayed at the Ormonde for a night in Feb. Excellent hotel to stay in. Staff were all excellent especially Sinead in reception. Bar staff could have done with an extra pair of hands as they were run off their feet on the night we were there. (Thursday). Would definitely stay there again.

I had stayed here a number of years ago and it was very nice. However the whole Hotel now needs to be completely refurbished. The corridors, rooms & furniture are all showing their age with scuffs and marks everywhere. We found the staff to be friendly but the breakfast we got to our room was only average. The cutlery also showed signs of age and could do with being replaced. It’s in a great location but would only stay here again if the place had being refurbished.

Ideal if you want to visit kilkenny, 1 minute to a range of bars and restaurants at night intermixed with boutiques for shopping in the day. Good spa and pool in hotel and an excellent breakfast, self service but you can ask for a variety of prepared eggs e.g. Eggs benedict. There is a rare use of e and g in 3 words in a row!

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in December and we had wonderful time ever! . Bedroom was very nice and clean, and had everything you would expect from a 4 star hotel. Breakfast was really good and staff were lovely and could not be more helpful. Fantastic location in the centre of town. Looking forward to going back again. Thank you Ewa Lyson
