This was a last minute book as we were on our way through to visiting Kilkenny Castle and it was a wonderful place to stay! Clean rooms, friendly staff and super close to the castle. Check-in/out was super easy and the interior of the hotel was very unique as it looked like the ruins of a castle or church. Thomas the bartender was very engaging with my husband! Should we return to the area, we would definitely consider staying here again.

Parking was next door. Very inexpensive to park. Two great restaurants associated with the hotel. The castle was a short walk away. The town was decorated wonderfully for Christmas
